Great idea from Chris Williams and the Twin Cities XNA User Group:

The Twin Cities XNA User Group is throwing their first ever charity event! Admission to this event is $10 (ten bucks!!) and that covers entry into what just might be the biggest Halo 3 tournament you've ever seen. We'll also have a room set aside for Rock Band 2 and of course XNA games for anyone who wants to check out the new Xbox Live Community Games.

Is that it? Nope, not even close. In addition to all this gaming goodness, we're going to give away some awesome prizes for the tournament winners and random stuff throughout the night. We'll also be providing pizza, sodas and BAWLS Energy Drink courtesy of our sponsors.

So this is for charity? Yep, we're raising money for Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota. Magenic (one of our sponsors) has graciously committed to MATCH 100% of the first $3000 we raise, so we're going to hit them for every cent! The only way we can do that is with YOUR donations. If you can't make it, but still want to give... we can totally hook you up.
