30 consecutive hours of music, variety acts, podcasts and other entertainment will raise money for local charity organizations. Will it work? Portland has a deep community of geeks and connections all around the web, so perhaps this group will be able to keep people entertained around the clock.Beth Kanter and author Tara Hunt. Charities benefitting from the event will include low-income computer assistance project Free Geek, the very innovative Oregon Food Bank and Toys for Tots.
