About HYPE Night
We are excited to partner with Cxmmunity (an HBCU Esports & gaming nonprofit organization) to bring this fun experience night directly to your screens via the Twitch platform - with a special VIP Experience taking place at Axis Replay - located at The Tech Square Atlanta Social Club.
All proceeds raised for the evening will go directly towards providing FREE access and opportunities to gain 21st-century tech skills for girls in Title 1 schools through one of our 3 core HYPE extracurricular learning programs.
