Local smartphone App company hopes to raise big money for Riley children

Indianapolis

Smartphone game Apps are hotter than ever-- and that’s why a Central Indiana college student has gone into business and developed a game he hopes will cash in on the excitement and help sick children at the same time.

The game is called Dodge the Dots. It is a skill based game created by Rag Tag Games where you dodge the dots that are headed for your player. But the unique thing about this app isn’t just the game, a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Riley Children’s Foundation.

Rag Tag Games contributes 50 percent of all revenue from both the free (ad version) and the paid version of the game directly to the IU Dance Marathon, a 21 year fundraising event that benefits Riley Children’s Foundation.

Jon Turpin, the owner of Rag Tag Games said partnering with the IU Dance Marathon is a great way to help a great cause.

"We wanted to be able to help the community. Indianapolis is a volunteer and a philanthropic community. There's tons of opportunities to help people."

The IU Dance Marathon hopes to raise $2 million this year. The marathon kicks off on Oct. 26. More information about the game is available online.
