I am happy to announce the 3rd Annual Cowlitz Gamers for Kids Charity Videogame show to help raise funds for the Childrens Justice and Advocacy Center(CJAC). Over the last two years, the show has helped raise over 4,000 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, April 28, 2012 at the THREE RIVERS MALL in Kelso, WA. THIS YEARS EVENT WILL BE IN A VACANT MALL BUILDING WITH OVER 42,00 SQ FEET! 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!
