RIT’s Center for Media, Arts, Games, Interaction and Creativity (MAGIC) worked with Make-A-Wish Central New York to grant a wish for 14-year-old Riley Zabele, who loves video games, especially interactive games that involve design. Riley, who has a brain tumor, and his family traveled to Rochester from Madison County on June 17 to pick up his new high-end, custom-built gaming computer created by MAGIC Center Director Andy Phelps and Associate Director Chris Egert. Riley also received several gifts donated by “friends of MAGIC,” including Vicarious Visions, Bungie, Re-Logic, Microsoft and Valve. Pictured, back row from left, are Phelps; Jennifer Hinton, assistant director, MAGIC Center; Jim Ockenden, Make-A-Wish Western New York Advisory Board; and Lou Diorio and Cristofer Sochacki, MAGIC Center co-op students. Seated in front row are Riley, left, and Egert.
