Note about Extra Life Charity Raffles
Every year, we raise money for our local Children's Miracle Network Hospital, the Upstate Golisano Children's Hospital. These funds are raised via the Extra Life charity through raffles at RetroGameCon. We rely on our vendors to help us fill the raffle baskets and raise money for the kids. If you have something you'd like to donate towards our raffles, we would greatly appreciate it and will be sure to thank you / your store on our social media. We donate 100% of proceeds from these raffles. With your help we can meet our goal of raising $5000 in 2017!

If you have something you'd like to donate, please mail it to:

RetroGameCon c/o Patrick Milligan
726 County Route 1
Oswego, NY 13126

Make sure to attach a note letting us know who the donation is from, so we can properly thank you on our social media.

You may also drop off a donation during set-up time at the show, and we'll be sure to place it into one of the raffle baskets. Feel free to include business cards!
