Donations stay local to fund critical treatments, healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care.



On Saturday, November 2rd, Bert, Alan and I will once again be playing video games for 24 hours for Extra Life, a charity gaming marathon that supports children's hospitals.

Over the past five years we've raised over $13,800 to support Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago, in honor of my daughter, Olivia. Olivia was born prematurely at 24 weeks on August 26, 2014 and treated at Lurie. Their wonderful staff was attentive, caring, and supportive during the most difficult time in our life. Olivia passed away on Halloween, just a few days after my first Extra Life marathon.

I've been humbled and awed by your generous support each year. Our goal this year is to raise a record $4,000 in Olivia's honor. We would appreciate a gift of any amount. Your donation is tax-deductible and ALL PROCEEDS go to help kids.

Thank you so much for your continued support!
