The Evo 2013 donation drive has come to a close and the winning game is Super Smash Bros. Melee. Skullgirls came up short at second place. Even though the game missed out on a spot on the main floor, its side tournament will be showcased.

SRK has revealed dedicated setups will be provided to the Skullgirls tournament. The top eight match-ups will be aired as part of the exhibition portion of the stream. $1,000 will also be added to the tournament pot.

Skullgirls raised over $78,000 for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The game was just $16,000 short of Super Smash Bros. Melee, which raised $94,683.
