About Sugar Gamers:
Sugar Gamers was founded in 2009 by Keisha Howard. She wanted to meet women with interests and ideas similar to her own, so she went on this adventure to not only find them, but unite them. Though our community isn’t one of hardcore pro-gamers- we have been recognized by companies such as Twin Galaxies and have received awards for our innovations and positive contributions to the gaming and technology communities.

Mission statement:The approach that Sugar Gamers takes to this industry sets us worlds apart from our counterparts. We value real life interactions just as much as our online community. We work diligently to have events that make the fun of “geek” culture come alive while being surrounded by remarkable and unique individuals.
