Bernard Carney(Bern) has managed financial sales at DSI for nine months. In 2013 Bern participated in a 24-hour gaming event called Extra-Life. Extra-Life began in 2008 as an event to raise money for a children’s hospital of your choice. The idea is to create a page for friends and family to donate funds while you play games for 24 hours. Through the help of friends and family, Bern managed to raise $700.
This year Bern designed a GoFundMe page to ensure that 100% of all money raised went directly to: The Ann K. Cresswell Memorial Fund, Children’s Hospital Colorado and Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. On October 4th, at 8 a.m., Bern and two friends began their game-playing marathon. Bern prepared a live stream for his family and friends to watch and cheer him on. They played video games, board games and card games for 24 hours. Bern and friends had an absolute blast and raised $1,905! Money raised was split between the three organizations. Way to go Bernard Carney, your DSI team is proud of you!
