I am happy to announce the 6th Annual Cowlitz Gamers for Kids Charity Videogame show to help raise funds for the Childrens Justice and Advocacy Center(CJAC).  Over the five shows, the show has helped raise over $24,500 to the Childrens Justice and Advocacy Center (CJAC) and we're convinced we can do better this year with your help!

PRGE is once again absorbing much of the cost of putting on this show so that 100% of the admission will go directly to CJAC. It is CJAC's mission to provide children who have experienced sexual or physical abuse a coordinated community approach to investigation, prosecution and treatment that promotes their safety, healing, and well-being. 

We have moved the show this year to a wonderful venue.  The show will be on Saturday, March 28, 2015 at the Cowlitz County Regional Conference Center in Longview WA.  1900 7th Ave Longview, WA.  The event will be from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM.   

 

Directions:

This years event is about 1 hour north of Portland or 2 hours south of Seattle on I-5. Doors open at 10:00 AM until 5:00 PM. Admission is  $5, although we invite you to contribute more if you can!  All admission goes straight to the non profit CJAC, which will be present at the show to answer further questions about how they service the community.  

 

Cowlitz County Conference Center
1900 7th Avenue
Longview, WA 98632
 

What Can you Expect?
Over 30 vendors from around the Northwest will be present. It will feature classic video game vendors, a freeplay gaming console arcade, a silent auction, and a retro videogame tournament.  All this done for a good cause. 
 

Expect a ton of good deals on classic video game merchandise including video game systems, games, artwork, and accessories.   In addition to outside video game vendors, there will be T-shirts and other merchandise specifically made for the event that will also be sold specifically to suport CJAC.

The event is child-friendly so please feel free to bring the entire family!
 

 

Further Announcements will be made, so stay tuned...

Just to inform everyone that we will be releasing a 2600 game on cart for this event.  All proceeds to charity.  I am looking for 2600 pcbs for this project.  If someone has any to donate, that would be most appreciated.

Progress is being made for the 2600 exclusive for the show.  The game will be a physical copy of Atarowg made by theloon.  The game name has been changed to C@tacombs of Chaos and will be packaged with case, manual, cart, and some extras.  Spread the word about the show.  This year is going to rock.

The show exclusives have been completed and are ready for the show.  A special thanks to Theloon and Retroscribe for donating the roms for the event.  Both versions of the roms donated are custom, unreleased, and exclusive to the show.   There also will be a very special silent auction version of Catacombs of Chaos with a custom 2600.  

 

All for charity
