Some of you may recall my post a few weeks ago announcing EA Sports involvement with PlayStation Home and the Brees Dream Foundation to help battle breast cancer through the sale of virtual Pink Brees jerseys, well the jerseys are set to go extinct on November 11th and the PlayStation Home community will be making one last major effort to get these jerseys out of the developer’s doors and into your virtual closets by means of a major event being held tonight.
The Club Fight Night Space (pictured above) is set to be packed tonight with pink jersey wearin’ PlayStation Home users as they come together in support of the Brees Dream Breast Cancer Foundation and have an awesome time. This event is scheduled to start at 11:59 PM EST and will run for approximately 2 hours, all that is required is that users adorn the Pink Brees jersey available in the PlayStation Home Mall Threads Store for $2.00 (100% of proceeds go to the foundation). Users who attend will be receiving shout outs from the Gamer In-Depth podcast (podcast run by several PlayStation Home fans) as they come across them and will hopefully feel a sense of immense pride knowing that they’ve contributed to helping a great cause.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED: Pink Drew Brees Jersey Located In The EA Sports Section of The Original Threads Store In The Home Mall
OK everybody, at the time of this writing it is now October 30th, 2009. What does that mean? Well, it means that you only have 12 more days left to grab your limited edition, Pink Drew Brees Jerseys in Home. In case you’re new and don’t know what I’m talking about, this limited edition jersey costs $2.00 in Home and not only does it look mighty spiffy, but 100% of the proceeds raised through the purchase of these jerseys go to the Brees Dreems Breast Cancer Foundation and on top of that you’ll recieve the upcoming EA Sports DJ equipment for free by entering an EA Poker Space with the jersey on the day of the event. Let’s make a monumental difference for those out there who obviously didn’t choose to have this terrible disease and have to deal with it day after day. If you don’t have a jersey already, snag one! And for those of you who may already own a jersey, why not purchase another for your avatar’s male/female counterpart? And of course, here are the details. We’ll all be meeting at EA Sports Club Fight Night Space on Thursday, November 5th at 11:59 AM EST, just make sure you’re wearing your Pink Brees Jersey. No versus, no contests, just a whole lotta’ Home users getting together to help support and promote a good cause. The event is being hosted by Gamer Indepth and you can easily hop into the main instance by adding Gamer_Indepth on the PSN and following them, however the event won’t just be restricted to that instance as I’ll be hopping around to several instances snagging photos (Lots of photo ops!) and tossing out shout outs to those I see on the Gamer Indepth podcast and yes, I will make a valiant attempt to throw a shout out to EVERYONE I see wearing the jerseys that night. Also, if you’re a club owner, please try and spread the news throughout your clubs. I’ll try and get a shoutout for any clubs supproting the event as well. Why not cement yourself in Home history as an atendee of one of the most awesome events to hit PlayStation Home? I know there are quite a few of you from the forums on my friends list, so by all means get to some of the more populated instances through your friends if possible as I’m going to be sending out invites to most of he individuals on my friends list. I might even list those who I plan to invite on my list so you guys might be able to just follow them. Hope to see you all in Home!
