We're proud to be able to say that Kinect Sports: Season Two was involved in the G3 Celebrity Game with Fame event this month, all in aid of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. From August 7th-9th, a parade of recognisable US faces visited the G3 Miracle Lounge in West Hollywood to play games with patients and Xbox LIVE members – you can check out some highlights in the Xbox photo album on Facebook and in a recap video featuring the likes of Amy Paffrath, Kyle Massey and Dylan McDermott.
While the celebrity gaming leg of this year's event is now over, you can still sign up for the Extra Life gaming marathon this weekend and get sponsored to play games, i.e. most likely what you'd be doing anyway! Any money that you earn will go towards life-saving care, research, treatment and equipment for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, so it's win-win. Here's the official description. Hope to see you online...
"Play to Give on Saturday, August 18th!
"Don't miss your chance to participate in the upcoming Gaming and Giving for Good (G3) Xbox LIVE charity event on August 18, 2012 to benefit Extra Life, a Children's Miracle Network Hospitals fundraiser.
