Vestal, NY (WBNG Binghamton) More than 400 cans of food were donated to CHOW Sunday.

B.C. Adeptus, a gaming club based out of Binghamton, held a Warhammer tournament at Jupiter Games to help raise donations for CHOW.

Warhammer is a dice-based strategy game where players battle each other with hand-painted models.

Nearly 22 people from Central New York and Northern Pennsylvania participated in the tournament.

"We're a local club, but today is a regional tournament where we have people coming from all over Central New York," Rex Henry, a participant and organizer, said. "So we have folks from Syracuse, from Oneonta, from out Elmira's way and we also have folks from Scranton, so people down there have come into the area to help us raise donations for CHOW."

Henry said he hopes to turn this into an annual event.
