From 4PM on Friday, November 5 to 4PM on Saturday, November 6, Magic City ePLEX is hosting a 24-hour charity stream benefiting Children’s of Alabama

The tech company’s been working alongside reps from Children’s within the Extra Life Program, which raises donations and awareness through streaming esports and virtual reality for Children’s Miracle Network.
