The GALLOPING GHOST ARCADE will be holding a fund-raiser to help with the expenses of a new expansion and all the new elements we are hoping to add to the arcade. In our recent announcements, we mentioned doing a Kickstarter to raise the funds, but by holding this fund-raiser first we are better able to use the money that is donated. The Kickstarter fees could be up to 10 percent, so with the fund-raiser we are able use the donation money more effectively. We will still be doing the Kickstarter after the fund-raiser, as Kickstarter does reach a huge amount of people globally.
