Kotaku Denver Charity Event March 24

March 16, 2011 -

Kotaku will host a charity event on March 24 at the Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom in downtown Denver to benefit the Japanese Red Cross Society. The Japan Earthquake Relief Fundraiser will be hosted by Brian Crecente and is described as similar to Kotaku's 2009 Child's Play fundraiser, which drew about 400 people. Here is more from Crecente:

"Next week I'll be hosting a Japan Earthquake Relief Fundraiser here in Denver with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the Japanese Red Cross Society, which is working directly in Japan to help those impacted by the Sendai earthquake and tsunami last week.

The fundraiser will include Rock Band, DJ Hero and perhaps Dance Central up on stage as well as a free console arcade when it kicks off on March 24 in the historic Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver.

The event is open to anyone 16 or older and kicks off at 6 p.m., running until midnight. If you are 21 or older, don't forget your ID so you can get a wristband to purchase drinks.

We're asking for a minimum donation of $10 to get in and get a door prize ticket. We will be giving away a huge amount of swag.

Once again Gabe of Death of the Arcade will be running the free Rock Band and DJ Hero gameplay up on Cervantes' mammoth stage. Since we have two set-ups, we'll be able to cycle through people much faster."

Crecente adds that the second floor of the venue will offer access to a free console arcade with many popular games. This part of the event is being run by "Greg of Colorado Cutthroat," who helps out Kotaku with charity events from time to time.

MattsworknameRE doc, everyone has a tendancy to let emotion get ahead of them, especially in an annoymous forum like the web. We have have those moments. Ip however has nothing but those moments. it's why I stopped responding to him, regardless of what he thinks or05/21/2015 - 11:17pm
DocMelonheadNo offense, but I see your behaviors in the comment sections uncalled for.05/21/2015 - 8:51pm
DocMelonheadHell, I could use both Goth_Skunk and IronPatriot as an example of such behavior between the two.05/21/2015 - 8:43pm
Andrew EisenMock? Ridicule? No, we're talking about serious threats and abuse, not people being cheeky or mean. Big difference.05/21/2015 - 8:42pm
DocMelonheadIn fact I see both mocks and ridicule between both the GamerGate Supporters and GamerGate Critics.05/21/2015 - 8:41pm
