Coming in two very short weeks, Dedicated Servers (Formally GOWCharity) is hosting the 2nd annual Pink Lancers Fight Cancer event, a 24 hour Gears of War marathon benefiting the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Last year, Dedicated Servers along with Epic and their pink Lancers raised over $3,000 to benefit Breast Cancer Research and Prevention. This year, we would love to top that amount while continuing to fight breast cancer. The Dedicated Servers crew has expanded Pink Lancers to welcome the Gears of War community, such as The EGFC, GCON, Warhoundz, Epic Games Universe, Gearz and Beers, and many more.
The event starts October 12th (Noon PM EST) till October 13th (Noon PM EST). What should you expect in a 24 hour livestream event? Dedicated Servers will host special guests from the gaming community, play Horde, jump into some random matches, and give away prizes to viewers, as well as people who donate.
If you donate, you will be eligible for our prize raffle, which includes a new Pink Retro Lancer compliments of Epic Games! We will also have prizes you can win from our other sponsors, as well as lots of surprises for those watching. If you want to join in and play Gears, The Epic Games Forum Crew and Gearz and Beers will be hosting lobbies, so make sure to follow http://www.twitch.tv/team/pinklancers for all the livestreams of the event.
