November 15-17 — Tennessee Game Days Fall V — Franklin, TN

Five years ago, in addition to our annual spring event, we started a one day fall event to coincide with Extra Life – a charity fundraiser that benefits the Children’s Miracle Network and furthers the work of local children’s hospitals. That event soon grew to a 24 hour gaming marathon. This year it is growing again to a three day, 50 hour gaming weekend!

All proceeds from this weekend will benefit the Monroe Carrell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt University. We are excited to again have the opportunity to do good while having fun!
