Operation Supply Drop to Hold Contest and Recruit Teams at PAX East
A few weeks ago, we talked about Operation Supply Drop and their ‘8-Bit Salute’ charity gaming marathon to be held on May 17-18. Since then, their list of partners has grown to include Treyarch, Twitch.tv, Popcap, and more. To top it off, they will also be making an appearance at PAX East in Boston.
Their booth, located in the main lobby area, near the official PAX East merchandise booth, will include a men’s and women’s push-up contest. Daily winners will walk away with an ASTRO Gaming headset and mix amp, courtesy of ASTRO Gaming. Along with the push-up contest, all PAX East marathon registrants will be entered into a drawing to win a Borderlands 2 PlayStation Vita bundle.
You can also sign up teams for the 8-Bit Salute 24 hour gaming charity event. There isn’t a lot of information about the teams yet, so head over to the PAX East booth to find out more.
