EXTRA-LIFE TEAM - Sponsored by Gorilla Games

The Chicago VGC will be forming a team for the Extra Life organization to raise money for the Children's Miracle Network.

Our 6-member team will be sponsored by Gorilla Games and we will be having our event hosted at Gorilla Games in Naperville where we will play at their store for 24 hours. Gorilla Games will be open for 24 hours so you can come check us out!

You can RSVP here and let us know you're coming to check out Gorilla Games and support us:  http://www.facebook.com/events/421075391281829/

    What will be the situation with food at this event?

    September 20, 2012

    • Amanda

      GG said they'd offer to get us pizza and such.

    We may need someone to sponsor a "home" event for folks wanting to do it since we won't have enough room at G.G.

    Jim, Jerel, Ryan... Please email if you are still interested in participating!!

      The site says each participant needs to play 24 hours. I looked around for info. on shifts but they said it was 24...

      Let me confirm with others for children care - we have a few things going on that day - so it is leaning towards a no (in case anyone else was interested)

  • Jerel S.

    Which hospital are we supporting? Or do we just pick our own?

    September 20, 2012

    • Jerel S.

      I picked a hospital back in my hometown. Is that okay?

      September 20, 2012

    • Amanda

      Go for it... I don't see why not.

      September 20, 2012

  • Jerel S.

    I've always wanted to do this!! I would totally be interested in helping out. :)

    September 18, 2012

    • Amanda

      Awesome! We'll add you to our team!

      September 18, 2012

  • Ryan

    I'd be interested in joining on in on this! No affiliation for me so I'm happy to go where needed.

    September 18, 2012

    • Amanda

      Awesome, I'm working out details for the VGC team and will let you know. So far I've got about 6 people interested since I posted this. Thanks for your help!

    The podcast network/gaming community I am involved with/podcasted with, is running their Extra life at Galloping Ghost and all of our podcasts have a donation drive etc. I think I can probably make a bridge with this group here if people want to jump aboard and work/game alongside this community? The community is www.Retroids.com for those interested- If you shoot me a message I can give you the admin running the event to coordinate, great people, and just a fun group - all games, and gamers invited - I know I'll be helping out for a good portion of the event.

    September 18, 2012

    • Amanda

      Yeah, I think I'd be interested in teaming the VGC with another team doing this. Let me talk with Steve so we can figure out what we want to do.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
