On Saturday, November 7th, Funkhouser will be holding a 24 Hour Gaming Marathon to raise money for Kentucky Children’s Hospital. From 10 Am to 10 Am, we will be at Legendary Games Lexington at 320 North Ashland Avenue in Lexington, playing board and card games and we want you to come join us! Along with Funkhouser and Legendary Games will be our friends from Lexicon Gaming Convention (who just funded their 2016 convention, but there is still time to back it) to join in on the fun.
Extra Life started in 2008 as a way to honor a young lady named Victoria Enmon, who was battling acute lymphoblastic leukemia. A gaming community was inspired by her story, and after she passed, created a 24-hour gaming marathon to raise money for Enmon’s hospital who helped her fight. Seven years later, Extra Life has raised $14+ Million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, and this year, we want to do our part.
This November 7th, gamers from around the world will be participating in this all-day fundraising event at the same time. We are going to set up shop at Legendary Games Lexington, playing games for 24 hours. This is a first time event for Funkhouser, so we want you to come out and make it a great time full of fun for a great cause. The UK Football team will be away that weekend, so if you’re in Lexington, or can make it to Lexington, come out and play some games with us! If you can’t make it, we will be live-streaming the entire 24 hour event on our YouTube channel. If you show up, you might be able to play a game or two with us on the live feed.
