Play with a Pro is an Extra Life team that raises money for The Barbara Bush Children's Hospital in Portland, Maine. Our unique concept allows Miracle kids and their friends to play games with Professional ESports players and streamers while fundraising for their local hospital.
Now, more than ever, the kids in our hospitals need us! The Children's Miracle Network Hospitals are able to use 100% of the money you donate today to purchase much needed supplies and equipment for their patients, nurses, doctors, and hospital staff. Funds have been used to purchase a variety of important equipment with funds from Extra Life including communication devices like laptops, iPads and tablets to allow the children easier access to stay connected with their families and friends. We all know just how important these relationships and interactions are for the kids and their families, and even more so, when they can't physically be together. We have helped provide funds for the focus of bringing joy and excitement to patients' bedsides. Including a rolling fish tank that visits rooms to the purchase of handheld gaming devices and games. Together, we can raise these much needed funds for local hospitals in our communities!
This time of social distancing doesn't have to keep us apart- we have always and will continue to stay connected through gaming and our very important communication tools. More than ever, our gaming communities, most often the people we consider family, will pull together to support not just the hospitals, but each other. So, let's stay connected via gaming both as players and viewers and invite others to be a part of our world!
Our dedicated and motivated team creates events that give children an amazing opportunity to play games with competitive ESports Players and professional streamers. These events not only give sick kids a day to “just be kids” but to also be SUPERSTARS!!
Play with a Pro was started in February of 2019 when our founder put together an event for a child, from The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital, to play with Activater, a streamer from NYC. The event was streamed on Twitch while the kids played live from a local movie theater, on the big screen!
The team continued to grow and attract attention from all around the globe. This led to additional events with an international competitive league and then with a Pro Player from TSM! We are honored to also be partnered with Central Maine Community College and their ESports Management degree and ESports Varsity Program and students.
Join us for another amazing Play with a Pro Extra Life event, to raise money for The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital, on March 28, 2020 from 9am-9pm EST. Competitive ESports Players and Professional Streamers will be joining us virtually to play games LIVE with our BBCH Superstars and local kids!
100% of donations go directly to The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital
Thank you to all of our Partners that have made this happen!
Everyone is welcome here, so kick back, catch an event, and help us raise much needed funds #ForTheKids!
