There will be an arcade area, gamer art, and local devs from Red Storm, Epic, etc. The main charity beneficiary is Operation Supply Drop which helps troops stationed at military bases and hospitals both stateside and overseas cope with military stress and depression through supplies and gaming! One highlight from their organization is that they were able to provide a make-a-wish type opportunity for a group of veterans who got to play Madden with members of the Chicago Bears! Very cool!! OSD is very willing to allow Extra Life to partner with them and share the donation proceeds. These guys were at the Microsoft Store with us during the launch of The Division earlier this year and are a very cool group of people! Ross is hoping for a $20K+ budget for this event. Last year Intel provided $300K worth of high end networking equipment for the event! Despite the fact that this event will take place during what is usually Extra Life’s “offseason” the leadership team would love to be a big part of this great event! That’s it guys and girls!
