    Hi Joy, Try using a white eraser! Here's a link from others who have tried this:

    Good luck!

    Try rubbing alcohol. Don't scrub too hard though, you don't want to ruin the finish.

    Take some isopropyl alcohol and pour a fair amount onto a clean cloth.
    Apply the cloth directly to the stain and rub until the marker stain begins to transfer.
    Rinse the affected area with water and pat dry.

    Take a bit of white toothpaste (not gel).
    Apply the toothpaste directly onto the marker stain.
    Rub the toothpaste using a damp rag. You’ll want to rub the affected area for a few minutes until the cloth can easily slide across the wood surface.
    Rinse the rag you used with water and rub the wood surface until the toothpaste is no longer visible.
    The marker stain should no longer be there. If any marker residue remains, repeat steps 1 through 4 until the stain has disappeared completely.

    Using nail polish remover, pour a bit of it onto the marker stain.
    Scrub the permanent marker stain using a paper towel. It should gradually begin to lift off of the wood.
