Hello, all! You may know MAGFest by either visiting the jamspace we run at PAX, or attending MAGFest itself. Life can't be all music and games, though, and it's time to get serious for a moment.
In light of the recent tragic events in Japan, MAGFest is doing all it can to raise funds for the relief efforts in Japan. We held an online streaming fundraiser at the beginning of this week and raised $900 during the three hour show! We also took the opportunity during the show to kick off some awesome week-long charity auctions, with some unique items including personalized artwork, VG remixes of the winner's choice from some of the top VG remixers, and a lot of great signed CDs and merch. Most of the auctions will wrap up sunday evening (March 27th), at which time we'll be holding ANOTHER online fundraiser show (starting at 7pm eastern) and announce the auction winners as the auctions finish. Full details on our auction items and how to tune into the online fundraiser are given here: http://magfest.org/japanTUNE IN HERE starting at 7pm Eastern (4pm pacific) Sunday March 27th
