Every year, Gen Con picks a charity to support during the show. This year, that charity is Child Advocates. They are the Court Appointed Special Advocate in Marion County who represent the best interests of abused and neglected children. Child Advocates does this by having volunteers work with court staff via advocacy, monitoring, evaluation, fact-finding, and mediation to make sure the children don’t get lost in the system. They also make sure the children have a safe, permanent home as soon as possible.
To help raise funds for this wonderful and important charity, CMON is running a series of special Rising Sun events to raise money for this great cause, let people play this exciting, new game, as well as possibly win a copy to take home for themselves.
The special charity events will be held at the CMON Booth during the show with two ticketed sessions each on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, and one session on Sunday. After each session of 16 participants, a drawing will be held to give out 6 copies of Rising Sun! This event is sold out, but you can visit Gen Con's Charity Partner page for more ways you can get involved and help out Child Advocates.
