WESTCHESTER GEEKS Message Board › Extra Life 2013
White Plains, NY
This year will be our second year doing extra-life- a fundraiser for helping sick children by sending 100% of all proceeds to local children's hospitals. Last year was a big success and we hop this years will be as big an event.
Jim Crocker is graciously allowing us to use MMNY as the host site for the event. The event starts 11AM on November 2 and runs until 11AM November 3rd.
Basically, this is like a nerd friendly version of a walk-a-thon. First sign up sponsors, and then you commit to playing games for a 24 hour period. The games can be video, board, rpgs or any combination therein. So essentially, we are raising money by pulling all-nighters doing something we love to do, but for a great cause.
So what can you do?
You can participate as a player- go to extra-life.org and sign up. Join the team Called "Westchester Geeks/MMNY", raise money, and have fun.
You can run a game- sign up as a participant, but then send me a note that you want to run a game. Plan on a 4-5 hour block of game time.
You can make baked goods/food for people to enjoy.
We really would love to get coordinators and people to run games all night.
Hoping to see you all soon at EXTRA LIFE!
