For the Kids
The RPGKC Extra Life 2014 special event is being held in conjunation with our monthly Game Day, Saturday, October 11th at Galaxy Games' new location at 3500 S 22nd St, St. Joseph, MO (map).
What is it?
In addition to our usual RPGs and board games, we are soliciting donations for the Extra Life charity, benefiting Children's Miracle Network hospitals. Each year Extra Life organizes gaming marathons. Participants solicit donations from friends, familiy, anyone really, similar to the March of Dimes' March for Babies and Bikers for Babies or the Alheimer's Association's Walk to Remember. Donors usually pitch in a dollar for every hour gamed. Game 24 hours, each donor pitches in $24. Voila! We aren't gaming 24 hours at Galaxy Games, but we are gaming 12! How about $2 for each hour? =)
Help just by coming and participating, or donating a few dollars (or more), or join our team to solicit donations/sponsors yourself! The charity works all year, culminating in a national gaming event October 25th, so if you can't help out at our special Game Day event, consider alternatives.
Please spread the word!

Attention gamers! The Extra Life KC Guild needs volunteers at their RenFest booth September 20-21. Work at the booth in period dress for two hours and you get complimentary access to RenFest all that day. What a deal, and all for a good cause! If they have more than enough volunteers for Saturday, they will also staff the booth Sunday. Volunteers will be taking registrations for participants in Extra Life's national gaming marathon on October 25th.
They'll need your name by end of day, September 18, so don't delay! Get out your pantaloons and help out. =)
