It was a successful weekend at the Extra Life Game Day, where their yearly fundraising total reached $9100.33 in Cranbrook.
$7354.33 was raised at the event and $1746 dollars was raised online, bringing the total to $9100.33.
The money supports the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation in Calgary.
Organizers say they support the nearby hospital because it is the closest to the East Kootenay region.
They add that while they didn’t hit their goal of $10,000, they set a new event fundraising record.
The event brings in families from across the region to play card games, board games and video games, giving away dozens of prizes from local sponsors and game developers.
