Extra Life Charity Event – October 4 & 5, 12 pm-12pm

Extra Life is a non-profit raising funds for Children’s Miracle Network, and Game Universe in Franklin has volunteered to host the event.
This event will be broadcasting online for people to see. There will be a designated table to play at for the broadcast.
Because Game Universe is staying open for 24 hours, they ask that participants either donate $24 to Extra Life which may be done online (http://www.extra-life.org/participant/GameUniverse) or by donating at the store during the event. Alternatively, you may purchase a board game off the Extra Life table at the store. All profits from board games purchased from this table and all donations will benefit the Children’s Miracle Network.

If you have anything specific you’d like to play, let Darlene know the game, what time you plan on starting, how long the game will run and if you would like to have your game broadcasted online. You can email Darlene directly at dwilson431@gmail.com. Make the subject Extra Life.  She’ll create a schedule accordingly.
