Geisinger Janet Weis Children’s Hospital Fundraiser

Lackawanna College and Scranton’s Bartari Bar and Restaurant are teaming up to raise money for Geisinger Janet Weis Children’s Hospital through Children’s Miracle Network’s Extra Life program.

Extra Life is a gaming marathon where gamers pledge to play games for 24 hours and ask family, friends and social media followers to donate to their fundraising goal for their local children’s hospital.

On Sunday, Nov. 6, Lackawanna College’s E-sports team will hold a gaming event from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. at Bartari, located at 101 Adams Ave. in Scranton. The public is welcome to attend in person or watch the team’s live stream on Twitch. The gamers will have challenges throughout the day to encourage people to donate to their cause.

Bartari will offer food and drink specials, and through their “Quarters for Kids” event, will donate all proceeds from games played during the day to Children’s Miracle Network at Geisinger.

The Extra Life program began in 2008 as a fundraising effort for Children’s Miracle Network hospitals and has raised more than $100 million nationwide through the program since its inception.

Money raised through Children’s Miracle Network at Geisinger programs stays local and supports pediatric care throughout Geisinger by providing funds for equipment, services and programs for the care of local children.
