24 hour Game Stream July 16th

The ESS will be running a 24h Game Stream this semester. During the stream students gather and play video games nonstop for 24 hours while streaming on for the public to watch and donate to. Last year we raised $1000, which we donated towards Child’s Play, a charity that provides games systems, toys, and other forms of entertainment to children going through medical treatment.

Everyone is welcome to join for a $5 donation. Food and drinks will be provided! We will be playing video games and board games with special challenges(eg. Blindfolded) and loser punishments.  Feel free bring your own game.

Join the Facebook event page here.

Where: ECS Building, 2nd floor
When: July 16 at 12pm to 12pm the next day

Drop by whenever you’re available or sign up for a time if you know you can make it. This will keep the stream running. Info on the Facebook event page.

Will you be daring enough to stay overnight?
