Being a technology junkie and a youth pastor Ray needed to come up with something cool, and albeit somewhat educational, he took his youth group back to the 70’s 1972 to be exact…

Pong for hope is just what it says a pong-a-thon to raise money for the American Heart Association.  The event started at noon on Friday and goes until the money runs out.  When you go to http://pongforhope.com you’ll see how much money  they need to play another hour. So far it’s been very impressive.

Walters has his whole Android Guys Thursday Night  For The Win (AGTNFTW) Crew on hand and the streamly.tv crew on hand to help including Aaron Kasten, Jake Southers, Matt Abdou, Thedudesandroid, Stacey Daisey, The Geek, Baldalbino and Pastor Ray!

They have  a special live schedule of streamly programs and two live pong feeds.  Here are the important links
