if anyone else is curious how free admission and free food/drinks helps the charity...

http://www.extra-life.org/

basically you should register and get your friends/family to sponsor you.... default fundraising goal is $100 per participant... though if you raise less you do not have to make up the difference. You can also have a "team" instead of individual goal.

Sounds like a fun way to raise money, though I'm unlikely to be able to make it myself.

Should also note that this is a national event... and even other participating children's hospitals in the Northeast (ME, CT, etc)... though I can't seem to find a complete list of event locations...

My wife and I plan to attend. Do we play what is there or bring games?

If the latter, we would probably bring:
Terraforming Mars
Mechs vs Minions
and maybe a few other games that are "marathon friendly".

But having never done this before, maybe the games are already determined or they should be light games such as King of Tokyo.
