The esports community was sent reeling earlier this week after his death was made public and a charity fundraiser tournament, the HulkTastic Cup, was quickly set up in tribute. The friendly competition was intended to not only honor Hawelka, but raise money for his family through both a GoFundMe campaign and a Matcherino crowdfunding page.

According to the crowdfunding pages, Hawelka’s family will donate any funds beyond those necessary to “a charity of their choice”.
