Top three hospitals with the most votes wins

10-02-2009 (Dayton, OH) - Microsoft has partnered with Children's Miracle Network to provide three pediatric hospitals an Ultimate Game Room experience which includes plasma TVs, personal computers, video games and two Xbox 360 systems - retail value of $10,000. The top three hospitals with the most votes win.

The Children's Medical Center of Dayton is currently in 50th place. Each time you vote you will be entered to win an Xbox 360 - the more you vote, the better your chances of winning. Voters can vote up to 10 times per day through Friday, October 16.

"This is a really neat program and winning the game room would mean so much to our patients," said Debbie Butner, Children's Miracle Network manager at Dayton Children's. "Some kids have to stay in the hospital for weeks depending on their illness. This would certainly brighten their day."
