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...

There isn't a "complete list" of event locations, as the overall focus of Extra Life is the gamers gaming for their hospitals in their way. So, many gamers will be at home.

at home? from

Courtyard Marriott Andover Massachusetts--Extra Life Board Game 72 hour Marathon Nov 3 6pm to Nov 6.

it sounded like these were big get together's with food/drinks/t-shirts

in any case for those in CT there is a 3rd thread ...

Extra Life 24 hour gaming in Manchester, CT. November 5th!

wish I could join any of them but sadly won't be able to
