The Charlotte Gamers United Extra Life! team has chosen to support Levine Children's Hospital, where thousands of children are treated each year, regardless of their family's ability to pay. These kids are facing serious threats to their health, like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and injuries from accidents, to name just a few.

On Saturday, November 3, 2018, we'll be part of a huge international celebration of the social impact of gamers with Extra Life. We invite you to come join the celebration!

There will be a raffle and prizes in support of Levine Children's Hospital.

A selection of games will be available and feel free to bring your own favorites as well. This event will last approximately five-and-a-half hours.

PRIZE FIVE: Pandemic Legacy Season 2 (Yellow)

The world almost ended 71 years ago. The plague came out of nowhere and ravaged the world. Most died within a week. Nothing could stop it. The world did its best. It wasn't good enough.
Gather your gear, venture into the unknown, and change the world! It's Pandemic Legacy: Season 2 - the follow-up to the hit game that took the world by storm.
