One Month Away From Funkhouser’s Extra Life Charity Gaming Marathons to Support Kentucky Children’s Hospital

extra-life

We’re one month away from Funkhouser’s 2016 Extra Life Gaming Marathons to raise money for Kentucky Children’s Hospital.  Our event in 2015 raised $2,000 for KCH, and in 2016 we are shooting for a goal of $3,000!  And we can’t raise that money without your help.

Our 2016 Gaming Marathons will take place over two days, spanning 12 hours over those two days:

Saturday, November 12 — Richmond, KY — Cafe Meeples — 10am-10pm (Link)
Sunday, November 13 — Lexington, KY — Legendary Games — 11am-10pm (Link)

We’ve got some fun things planned so far for the two days of events.  On Saturday, we will have the UK/Tennessee game on the big screen at Cafe Meeples, so you can come watch the Cats continue their quest for a bowl bid, while rolling dice and playing games.  We will also have a series of games with us that have been (or should have been) featured on popular gaming podcast “Flip The Table”.  The Flip The Table podcast looks at “the other side” of board games, which usually includes terrible games with popular movie, tv or product branding. These games include The McDonald’s Game, Breaker 19: The CB Trucker Game, and Star Trek: The VCR Game.

The McDonald’s Game, Breaker 19 and others will be auctioned off (along with some KSR gear) after the event, as well, to help raise our donation total for Kentucky Children’s Hospital.

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 raised 8.3 Million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in 2015 alone, and this year we’re going to do our part to help again.

If you would like to help us in our efforts to raise money for Kentucky Children’s Hospital through this fun event, there are a few ways you can do so:

  • Click Here to go to our donation page and make a donation to the Funkhouser KSR Team and Kentucky Children’s Hospital.  Any donation would be greatly appreciated.
  • If you would like to reach out to your friends to donate and help raise money on your own, you can Join Our Team and any money you raise will be added to the Funkhouser team total.
  • Make a donation ($5 minimum) at the Extra Life Event on November 12 at Cafe Meeples in Richmond -or- November 13 at Legendary Games Lexington and come play with us.  You can stay the full 12 hours if you want, or you can drop-in and drop-out over the course of the day if you would like.
