Where did September go? September was an AWESOME month which brought us PAX and my birthday, but now its over. But thats ok, cause we have the amazing month of October to look forward to! And thus I bring you our planned events for this month! Its a big one!
What: Extra Life 24 hr Gaming Marathon
Where: South van Awesome
When: Oct 16-17th, 8am-8am!!!
As of now, there is one major event being planned, and thats the Extra Life Gaming Marathon. As you may or may not have heard, the Extra Life
charity organization is one started by Sarcastic Gamer that puts raising money for charity our gamers' hands. Its an annual marathon in which we take donations to raise money for the local Children's Miracle hospital. Alex Sanderson and I are planning a 24 hour gaming marathon where we will take donations. This event will be on Oct. 16th and run from 8am to 8 am!
We have a variety of games and systems that we want to showcase throughout the day, which will include modern favorites such as Halo:Reach and Super Street Fighter 4 as well as retro games such as Ninja Gaiden and Chip and Dale's Rescue Rangers! 24 hours is a LONG time to have just one person gaming, so we are asking for the DtoidSF crew to come help out and game with us all day/night!
This event will be streamed online using Ustream
, so the greater Destructoid community will be able to watch, join in, and donate money for charity! We are also hoping on giving away some swag and prizes throughout the night, so everyone should feel free to tune into the stream!
There will be tons more details about this the sooner it gets to the date, and the more finalized the plans get....but make sure to make it out to South van Awesome to help us get through the day! Also we need to spread the word early to those who want to support us before the event even starts...so tell your co-workers, friends, and family that you will be going to a charity event and are asking for their help!
Look forward to the Extra Life cblog coming later!!! Or start your donating at our donation page below
