Cowlitz Gamers for Kids 2014

Recommended Posts

I am happy to announce the 5th Annual Cowlitz Gamers for Kids Charity Videogame show to help raise funds for the Childrens Justice and Advocacy Center(CJAC). Over the last four years, the show has helped raise over $16,500 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.

The show will be on Saturday, March 22, 2013 at the THREE RIVERS MALL in Kelso, WA. THIS YEARS EVENT WILL BE IN THE Kelso 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 a suggested donation of $5 to CJAC, although we invite you to contribute more if you can!

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

Would it be possible to reserve a copy?

 

Nope. The vendor who is selling this does not want to reserve the game for anyone. It will be first come, first serve and limited to one purchase per person when the doors open. This is ensure that the people attending the event when it opens have first access to the game.
