October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and to help in the fight against this deadly disease (that affects thousands of people in the United States) Esports Arena Oakland along with the PandoraHouse team will be holding a tournament event this Sunday in northern California. This event will be hosting casuals and tournaments for Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Dragon Ball FighterZ, and Tekken 7.
The tournaments are free to enter, with 100% of the venue fee and raffle ticket proceeds benefiting the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Also 25% of the proceeds from the booths and artists at the event will go to the foundation as well. On top of all of that, there will be extra prizes awarded to the the first and second place players of each game, and even more prizes for the two games with the most entrants. Registration and additional info for this event can be found by clicking on the links in the tweets and sources below.
Combat for a Cause is coming up soon!
$10 Flat Fee = Casuals + Tournament play. And it ALL goes toward charity!
