On Wednesday, December 9, Harmonix and children’s charity Child’s Play will be presenting Ümloud!, a Rock Band night charity event. The all-ages event, which is set to take place in San Francisco’s DNA Lounge, will be hosted and staffed by several members of the gaming news media and gaming industry such as John Seggerson (Telltale Games), Chris Kohler (Wired), Joe Market (Gamehelper), and Randy Nelson (Joystiq) to name a few.
The charity event will feature Rock Band night as previously mentioned, which should make for a fun and meaningful time. Ümloud! will commence at 7 PM, and attendees can expect to make with the rock until the wee hours of the night, as the event is set to end at 2 AM. Admission into the venue comes with a suggested $10 price, but all proceeds from the event will go to providing toys and video games for children’s hospitals around the United States. For those feeling especially charitable, $120 and $40 donations will come with an opportunity of performing on the venue’s main stage, which is pretty cool. Additionally, everyone who attends will be eligible for a chance to win one of the many prizes being raffled off.
The following is taken from Ümloud!’s official press release: “Ümloud! is one of our core community fundraisers at Child’s Play. We rely heavily on the efforts of video game community, and events such as Ümloud! form the backbone of that support,” said Kristin Lindsay, Project Manager for Child’s Play Charity. “It’s an amazing night of Rock Band 2, prizes and partying, and it’s all for a great cause. Donations from Ümloud! help support the Child’s Play network of children’s hospitals around the world. When gamers give back, it makes a big difference!”
