     HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University’s public radio station 90.9 KSLU will hold a video game fundraiser in the War Memorial Student Union April 24-25 to raise funds for Virginia Tech’s Hokie Spirit Memorial Fund. 

     KSLU’s “Guitar Hero Challenge” will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event will test players’ skills of the popular video game as they emulate playing lead guitar in a rock band.

     For a $3 donation players will select a song and difficulty level in an attempt to win a variety of prizes including a pair of tickets to this year’s New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. 

     All of the proceeds collected will go to the families of the Virginia Tech victims through the Hokie Spirit Memorial Fund.  

     “It only seemed fitting to donate the proceeds to Virginia Tech,” said KSLU Underwriting and Development Representative Chad Pierce. “We strive to do all we can to help our local community. But the families up there are going through so much, we wanted to extend a helping hand to them as well.”
