Calling all central Oklahoma tabletop gamers! Join us for our fourth annual Extra Life fundraising event. For 24 hours we play board games, card games and RPGs (with food, tournaments and raffles in the mix) to raise money for Oklahoma kids in need.
Over the past three years, we've raised $4,591 for the Oklahoma Children's Hospital Foundation. This year, we hope to raise $2,000 more to help them advance pediatric research and education programs to improve the health of Oklahoma children. All funds donated to Children's Hospital Foundation stay in Oklahoma so that families don’t have to leave the state to receive specialized care. They serve children in all 77 counties and no child is ever turned away, regardless of ability to pay. Your donation is tax-deductible and ALL PROCEEDS go to help kids.
With the generous support of our host Game HQ as well our sponsors and volunteers, this is the annual event people talk about all year long. Don't miss it!
