First Friday February 1, 2013 from 5-9PM, EventPort will be hosting Kansas Cit’s first Dota 2 Marathon to benefit Child’s Play Charity. Dota 2 is a computer based game relying on real time game play, strategy, and with elements similar to a role-playing game such as World of Warcraft.
Similar events have been held in recent years across the country, raising upwards of $500,000 for charity. This most recent marathon has a goal of $3,000 and will stop accepting donations February 3. There will be 3 local players plugged in for a total of 24 hours, during which up to 24 1-hour games will be played. EventPort will be open to the public until 9PM and reopen the following day at Noon for final game play. Live streaming is also available along with the opportunity to donate via their website. Or check them out on Facebook!
