Dan Green Benefit at the Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series – Providence, Rhode IslandSeptember 28, 2012 at 7:37 pm | Posted in Duel Monsters, Other Stuff, Yu-Gi-Oh! | Leave a comment
Few Yu-Gi-Oh! fans will ever forget the tragedy that befell Dan Green (the voice of Yugi) and his family and friends in November 2011 when his wife Michal passed away after giving birth to twins. Little Kuriboh, who had helped so many others before with his famed “Card Games For Charity” event, raised over $6,300 for Dan and his newborns, Reverie and Jackson, through his auctions and encouraged fans everywhere to donate.
Now, the Yu-Gi-Oh! community is coming together once again to help support Dan and his family with a very special benefit being held at the Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series (YCS) in Providence, Rhode Island on October 21 and 22. Several voice actors from the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime series will be in attendance, including Dan Green, Wayne Grayson (Joey Wheeler), Darren Dunstan (Maximillion Pegasus), Ted Lewis (Ryo Bakura, Bandit Keith, Jack Atlas), Greg Abbey (Tristan Taylor, Yusei Fudo), Erica Schroeder (Mai Valentine, Mana, Akiza Izinski), and Mike Pollock (Arthur Hawkins). The charity events include discussion panels, scripted live duels, autograph sessions, and a Win-A-Mat tournament.
A video about the benefit was posted on the official Yu-Gi-Oh! Fan Page on Facebook earlier today. Additional information about YCS Providence, Rhode Island is available in a press release and at YuGiOh-Card.com.
