Big E Gaming Presents Bar Battle 3/Charity Fights 2 Tomorrow in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

By on November 9, 2012 at 10:00 pm

In an effort to raise funds for multiple charities in their area, the folks behind Big E Gaming have set up Charity Fights 2, their second annual charity tournament and the third event in the Bar Battle series. This year, they’re set to donate to three separate organizations (The Salvation Army, Marines Toys for Tots, and Women Against Abuse of Philadelphia), and they will also be accepting canned goods for local food pantries. All the information you’ll need to attend the tournament and details on every charity have been included below.

If you’ll be in the area and would like to help out those less fortunate then yourself, be sure to stop by, donate what you can, and get in on some great east coast tournament action.


A 501(c)3 nonprofit domestic violence agency, provides comprehensive services to the Philadelphia community. Our services include emergency shelter, transitional housing, legal services, behavioral healthcare, advocacy and education.

The mission of Women Against Abuse is to provide quality, compassionate, and nonjudgmental services in a manner that fosters self-respect and independence in persons experiencing intimate partner violence and to lead the struggle to end domestic violence through advocacy and community education.

The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.
