iPLAYWINNER, Level | Up Series, and The Etrium are teaming up to host Fight For Relief, a special fighting game charity tournament on Sunday, April 3rd. If you’re in the University of California – Irvine area, you are invited to attend:
For the first time, two of the fighting game community’s premier streaming groups, iPLAYWINNER and Level | Up Series, in cooperation with Etrium Gaming District and the Fighting Gamers @ UCI, will be collaborating to broadcast an entertaining online show featuring giveaways, special guest interviews and top-level play in Super Street Fighter IV and Marvel vs Capcom 3 from the likes of EG Justin Wong, Alex Valle, John Choi and other competitive legends — all with the intention of raising awareness and donations along the way.
All tournament proceeds and donations raised from Fight for Relief will go towards a collective fundraiser on GlobalGiving.org, a website dedicated to social change and helping victims of natural disasters. More specifically, donations and proceeds will go towards a direct fund dedicated to Japan Earthquake and Tsunami relief efforts.
If you can’t attend in person, worry not: the event will be streamed online via justin.tv/fightforrelief.
