Boards and Bites Cafe of Tyler is teaming up with Extra Life in the East Texas Day of Play to help raise funds for Children's Miracle Network at Christus Trinity Mother Frances Hospital.

Sunday, Dec. 16, from 10 a.m. till 10 p.m. the cafe is hosting a gaming marathon to benefit CMN. Typically, the Extra Life foundation is associated with video games, but Boards and Bites wanted to get involved.

Sunday, when you pay to play at Boards and Bites your money will go to CMN through Extra Life.You're welcome and encouraged to pledge more, and stay all day! Giving more will enter you into other drawings for prizes as well as unlock extra perks when you return to Boards and Bites in January.

Extra Life unites thousands of gamers around the world to play games in support of their local Children's Miracle Network Hospital. Since its inception in 2008, Extra Life has raised more than $40 million for sick and injured kids. Sign up today and dedicate a day of play for kids in your community!
