KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – A local game tavern hoping to close out the decade by raising money to save lives in its Extra-vaganza Gaming Tournament.

Gamers will have the chance to compete against one another in Street Fighter V, BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle and Tekken 7 during Token Throwdown by Scruffy City.

There’s also a Magic the Gathering Bar-Room Brawl hosted by Level Up Games and Hobbies, and many more events happening this weekend so that gamers can play to help local kids.

“Everything that is donated through Extra Life, goes right to East Tennessee Children’s Hospital, and it helps them in their donation campaigns.”
