The money will be used to donate PlayStation 4 consoles for hospitalized children, the organizers said. 

An online video game "telethon" staged by two Long Island foundations has raised more than $8,000, a nonprofit official said Wednesday.

The "Operation Playcation" benefit, proposed by Molloy College business students, was staged on Twitch.tv, a website owned by Amazon.com Inc. where viewers can watch live streams of skilled video game players. A link to the PayPal payments system on the site let almost 170 viewers contribute to the drive to donate Sony PlayStation 4 consoles, software and peripheral hardware for hospitalized children.
