We're on a mission to play games in order to help heal kids

On November 2nd, noon EST, the Tech Valley Game Space (TVGS) game developer community at the capital region of NY, in collaboration with Tech Valley Center of Gravity (TVCOG), will be playing games for 25 hours to raise funds for sick kids at our local children's hospital.

One of largest and most active game developer community in the Capital Region of New York, in collaboration with Tech Valley Center of Gravity, is on a mission to help sick and injured kids in our local region and we need your help!  To help raise funds and awareness, we're participating in this huge worldwide movement called Extra Life.  Gamers and developers of all kinds pledge to play everything from video games to board games and tabletop RPG's for 25 hours (don't forget the daylight savings) at 30 3rd Street, Troy, NY!  It's our sincere hope that you'll find it in your heart to support our efforts with a monthly pledge or one-time gift.
