9:50 PM – Wrap Up and Thank You’s
In the last ten minutes we’ll give away our remaining prizes (prior to this random draws will take place every hour to give viewers chances to win awesome swag bags). We’ll also thank the community, reveal our final numbers, and talk about the milestones we reached. Will we raise $2000.00 and have to create a male staff cosplay calendar like we said we would?!
