I am happy to announce the 9th Annual Cowlitz Gamers for Kids Charity Videogame show to help raise funds for Arc of Cowlitz County this year.
The Portland Retrogaming Expo is once again absorbing much of the cost of putting on this show so that 100% of the admission will go directly to ARC of Cowltiz County
The show is at the same place as the last two years. The show will be on Saturday, March 31st, 2016 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.
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 ARC of Cowlitz County, which will be present at the show to answer further questions about how they service the community.
