EVO is the place to be if you're into competitive fighting games, and the 2013 event is scheduled to take place in July.

Eight games will be making the trip to Las Vegas, with seven already decided upon. The organisers are opening up a donation run to decide the eighth and final entrant, and GameCube classic Super Smash Bros. Melee is currently in the lead.

Here's the official line:

We’ve set up a donation page for the each of the most popular games in our previous Facebook poll. The game whose community raises the most money to help find a cure for breast cancer will be the final game at this year’s EVO. You can help get your game there by donating yourself, or by forwarding this page to your friends and relatives.

Wii sequel Super Smash Bros. Brawl is also in the running, but according to insider information, Melee is the preferred choice and is having to fight off stiff competition from downloadable fighter Skullgirls. Simply put, a flood of support is required to ensure Melee makes it to EVO in July - and it's all for a good cause.

You can make a donation here.
