BOOM goes the thermometer.

Now, you notice we’re over $10,000, and that includes the money Chachi put in from Chachi Plays for Kids. I am having him count all the money over $10,000 toward his efforts and that means he is at $2,400 and will be playing video games for 24 hours in support of our city’s sick kids. Every cent raised here and at his site is going to the Mario Lemieux Foundation.
You can still donate if you want to be a part of this. Throw in a few bucks. Two will even do, if you have them.
What’s important is the Adolescent Medicine ward will be filled to the tippy top with games and laptops and more for the sick children that occupy those 24 beds.
