PORTLAND — Gamers are invited to spend all day Saturday, Nov. 7, playing for a good cause in a fundraiser that will benefit the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital at Maine Medical Center.
Hospital spokeswoman Susan Pierter said the 24-hour “Extra Life” event, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital program, will take place at Arcadia National Bar, 24 Preble St.
