This year we are adding additional forms of entertainment for you to enjoy! Friday night we have hoopers and twirlers showing off their skills(outside of course) from 7-9 pm!

Emily Claire Daversa – makes everyone’s delicious burritos. I’ve only been hula hooping for roughly four months, but find it to be a relaxing and fun form of expression. I also cosplay casually, and find myself going to five or more anime conventions each year. The reason I’m helping out with this is because It’s always a pleasure to help out around town and contribute towards making a difference.

 Katie Dudas – twirler, social media nut ball. Tall.

Costume Contest from 10 – 1 on Saturday! Come dressed as your favorite whatever and enter this fun addition to Chachi Plays! Judging will happen at 12:45 pm!

Chachi Plays for kids 5.

It’s later than normal for this, I know. However, I’ve done a lot of thinking and considering as to whether or not Chachi Plays would happen this year or not. Consulted my people and mulled it over. I’m not really going to go into why but I have come to a conclusion….

Ladies and Gentlemen without further ado here are the details you’ve waiting for!

Date: August 7th and 8th.

Time: 7 pm to 7 pm

Place: Toonseum

Benefits: Toonseum and The Father Ryan Arts Center

Goal: $2400

The donation collection will begin on the 15th!

You know the deal, 24 hours in the event, 24 slots to fill. $50 dollars a slot. There will only be 1 tournament this year to be announced later!

Thanks, Danke, Gracias, Merci, Much Obliged.

All words that can be used in this situation. I’ve spent that last weeks or so beyond busy at work and trying to think of what to say. Every year we do this, every year i write a thank you and every year it never seems like enough.

Thank you, People of the internet, that i know or don’t know in real life. Without your support none of this is possible. We would be a group of people playing video games by ourselves trying to figure out where we went wrong and how to give back to the community in which we live and play. You have supported us every year for 4(!) years now. Every year this is done and every year it gets more and more popular. For this I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Oh my lovely Christina. you have been more supportive and helpful then i could have ever asked you. You rearrange your already hectic life for this event.  You listen to my pre CP worrying/concerns and assure me that everything is going to be ok. And just like you say every year, it is in fact ok and everything goes well. For this i thank you my loving team mate.

The Sorgs. Man, The Sorgs. You two also rearrange your lives for this. Mike staying up with me for the whole event, hanging out in the wee hours of the morning and acting completely ridiculous with me to stay awake. Missy, teaming up with Chris to make sure I eat and drink more than just caffeine.

Joe Wos at the Toonseum, for opening the doors of the place and letting us take over for the majority of the weekend. Making sure that we have everything we need.

Sure, Its called Chachi Plays, and i play for 24 hours, but when its all said and done the event would be absolutely nothing with out the everyone mentioned above. So take your bow, accept your applause. You’ve done good.
Just about 1700 dollars will be split between 2 worthy organizations. All because of you.

Thank You.
