The very first Cowlitz Gamers for Kids Expo was in 2010. It was created to rally support and fundraise for an amazing charity. Children's Justice & Advocacy Center is a non-profit team that gives children a safe place to escape child abuse and neglect, providing resources to aide in investigation, prosecution, treatment and healing.
6 years later, the expo has grown exponentially and has accrued over $24,500 for CJAC. With the help of our sponsors, vendors, volunteers, and attendees, we gather to enjoy gaming for a fantastic cause!!
