As a way of saying thanks for raising over $78,000 in the Evo charity drive for breast cancer research, Evo will be helping out Skullgirls at this year's tournament. Skullgirls will get its own dedicated equipment to host a side tournament during the big event and Evo is even throwing $1,000 into the prize pool.
