On Saturday, June 9th
come out to Checkpoint Tennessee – a 12 hour gaming mini-marathon to raise awareness for Extra Life. We won't be doing any fundraising at this event, but Extra Life is a charity fundraising effort to use gaming to raise money for children’s hospitals nationwide – cumulating in a 24 hour gaming marathon that happens in November of each year. Money raised in Nashville will help the cancer ward at Monroe Carrell Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.
Like a good journalism student, let’s give you the facts!
You, of course. And anyone you know that likes games . . . or helping sick kids . . . or both!
: 12 hours of gaming – 10 am until 10 pm! We will have a good chuck of the TGD library there, some tournaments with game giveaways (Ice Cool, Skull King, Game of 49 and Dimension) and some general door prizes. There will also be PC gaming and console gaming to be had if you go in for that electronic stuff! :)
Tech Hill (the site of last year’s Extra Life Event and of Meeple Mountain Nashville Game Nights), 500 Industrial BLVD S, Nashville, Tennessee, 37210
Saturday, June 9th
10 am – 10 pm
This event is FREE. All you have to do to attend is register with the Extra Life website, you can join the TGD team here
. While it does ask you to set a fundraising goal to register, no expectations are being made. Our local Extra Life guild just wants to be able to let you know what’s going on during the year and let you learn a little more about what they’re doing for the kids. No hard sells, just sign up on the website – the only goal is for you to have a ton of fun – so much that you’ll join us again for the Extra Life 24 Hour Marathon in November.
Make plans to join us on the 9th
and Game On!
