When the original Marshviper passed away in 2010, friends and family started participating in the fundraising campaign, Dry July. This year, Concur has thrown itself behind the cause. Our epic Charity Stream is almost here, and it's shaping up to be a fantastic day for guildies and friends alike! This Sunday, 22 July starting at 9.30am WST/11.30am AEST/6.30pm PDT*(server) we will go live on our channel, http://twitch.tv/concurofblackrock and stream various guild events for 12 hours straight in an effort to raise funds for our Dry July campaign. We have five members who have committed to foresaking booze for one month, and this stream is being organised to compliment their efforts and give those guild members who weren't able to kick the habit a chance to get involved and help make a difference for adult cancer patients in hospitals across Australia.
Dry July is a non-profit organisation determined to improve the lives of adults living with cancer through an online social community giving up booze for the month of July.
Whether joining as a part of a team or as an individual, DJ's (Dry.July.er [dee-jay] noun: a person or team actively sponsored to participate in Dry July) take on the 31 days of July to raise funds and directly help adults living with cancer and their families to improve their quality of life.

PRIZES GALORE FOR DONORS AND PARTICIPANTS!
Throughout the stream we will be giving away various World of Warcraft Blizzard Store products such as pets and mounts, as well as a set of 4 Limited Edition Collectors Cups featuring all your favourite bad guys such as Arthas, Deathwing, Illidan and Kael'thas. For your chance to win, you've just got to donate on the day! Pretty easy, huh? :)
Guild members, check out the DJ Events thread in the forums for a list of prize criterea. The guild bank is feeling very generous, so there are a lot of awesome ways to win.
- Opening Ceremony with Casadella and Nerisanda
- LFR with Nerisanda and Geronan -- Nice and relaxing foray into the wonderful experience that is weekend LFR *cough*. Anyone is welcome! If you're not a guildie, just ask one of us for our Real ID and come join the fun!
- Hardcore Diablo 3 with Disconcur, Xsak, Kaida and Honorguideme -- Watch as this unlikely band of allies flounder their way through hardcore D3. Who will be the first to die?
- Moo Marathon with Casadella and Divinya -- Race to the gates of Stormwind with a freshly created level one Tauren! No mounts, no gy jumping, lots of laughs! Who will be the winner?
- Arena with Steelrage -- Watch the fun as Steel and friends flex their PvP muscles in ranked arena matches.
- DayZ with Disconcur, Steelrage, Novaliam and Maeroki -- This AMRA2 mod has been sweeping Concur by storm. Come check out how well guildies fare with nothing but a flashlight to protect them from the zombie apocalypse...
- ICC stealth run with Nerisanda and Casadella -- Can our druid (and maybe a rogue or two) army storm the citadel pulling as little trash as possible?
- Hobo Heroes Naxxramarus with Nerisanda and Xsak -- The raid team will zone in wearing nothing but common or lower items and attempt to clear out Naxx. Will our raw stats and the luck of random drops be enough to overcome Kel'thuzad and Co?
- Closing Ceremony
SPREAD THE WORD!
There you have it, the plan for an absolutely massive day filled with plenty of events that everyone is welcome to participate in. I encourage you all to be online, help spread the word and get your friends and family to cough up some cash for a fantastic cause!
*NB. If you are in the US, this event will start on Saturday evening. Yay for time travel!
