Rock Band Marathon to Raise Money for Child’s Play Charity


Six gamers are poised to play 1,000 Rock Band songs back-to-back to raise funds for the gaming charity, Child’s Play.

Starting Friday, November 27 at 9AM EST, six gamers from Raleigh, NC will be hosting a 1,000 song Rock Band charity videogame marathon to benefit Child’s Play, a charity which donates toys, games, and books to children’s hospitals worldwide. The marathon will be broadcast via Ustream on where people around the world will be able to see three people playing the game at all times (on guitar, drums, and vocals) and a fourth running a live online chat.
