It was an emotional win for Game On Cards and Games who took out the People’s Choice Award for Favourite Business at the 2017 Peak Connect Carillon Business Awards.

Co-owner Ann Bantoff gave a stirring acceptance speech saying she was blown away by the win and described how they had started the business two years ago after their 19 year old son Brad had been diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour.

Brad had always dreamed of one day owning and operating his own game store so Ann and partner Tony decided to fulfil his dream. While Ann and Brad stayed at Westmead Hospital recovering from Brads sixth brain surgery, Tony was busy travelling back and forth to Bathurst on weekends renovating the space that is now Game On Cards and Games.

In September 2015, Game On Cards and Games was opened for business, just two days after Brads last radiotherapy treatment.
