Rock out for a great cause
In the Bay Area this Thursday? Come melt your face at San Francisco's DNA lounge for Ümloud!, the annual California fundraiser that benefits Child's Play. Did I mention Tim Schafer, creator of Psychonauts, Grim Fandango, and Brutal Legend will be there hosting the show? Check out the list of bands performing -- old time Dtoid readers will recognize a few familiar faces. There will also be a silent auction, a raffle, free prizes, and all kinds of other stuff going on. You don't want to miss this event. Actually, let me help you arrive in style!
Destructoid is giving away 10 early-access tickets to the VIP party that kicks off one hour before the show. That's right, you'll get to rub elbows with the elite at 6pm and check out the festivities before doors are open to the general public. Important: you must be 18+ to win.
To enter the contest just tweet this story with the hashtags #Umloud #Dtoid.
Winners will be notified over Twitter PM within 24 hours with a redemption code to print their tickets at home. Good luck! If you don't win a ticket you can purchase one from DNA's website.
You don't have to be in San Francisco to help this charity: You can donate over the web
Funds collected benefit Child's Play, a non-profit organization founded by the guys at Penny Arcade to help bring awesome to 70 children's hospitals around the world. If everyone reading this donated enough to buy a cup of coffee, it actually adds up to a lot. They've raised over $40,000 in the past years, and we hope to beat that number this year, so every little bit helps!
We'll see you at the show!
