Winner of the “Best Special Event” of 2019, Extra Life Achievement Award, for Children’s Miracle Network!
Play with a Pro is an Extra Life team that raises money for hospitals in the Children’s Miracle Network. Our unique concept allows kids to play games with Professional ESports Players and streamers while currently fundraising for The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital (BBCH) in Portland, Maine.
Our dedicated and motivated team creates events that give children an amazing opportunity to play games with Pro Players in the gaming industry. These events not only give sick kids a day to “just be kids” but to also be SUPERSTARS!!
100% of all donations made through our donate link go DIRECTLY to The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital!!
BBCH has used donations in the past to purchase fun, but necessary, equipment to create the best experience for the kids. A few examples include a MRI Entertainment System for patients to watch their favorite movies while completing their long, loud, and sometimes frightening testing, a fish-tank on wheels that allowed staff to bring the comfort of the fish directly to patient rooms- to small (but expensive) items like batteries for all the wireless gaming remotes and toys. Did you know every patient room at BBCH has an XBox One? Being in the hospital can be a scary experience, but the amazing staff at BBCH do everything they can to ensure the children in their care receive the best possible treatment and are always surrounded with love, support, and laughter!
