DC Abortion Fund Game-A-Thon

It’s time to help the DC Abortion Fund raise money for hundreds of people seeking abortion care in the DMV. Game-a-Thon is an afternoon of playing board games while raising money for abortions. Last year, nearly 100 people raised more than $52,000 for DCAF, making up almost a third of DCAF’s budget for the year. Our patients need us even more this year. Here’s what you can do: Find a few friends, sign up as a team, and commit to raising as much money as you can.  Sign up now for DCAF’s Game-a-Thon.  and do your part to help make choice a reality. 

WHEN: Saturday, April 30, 1-4 p.m.

WHERE: Location given upon registration
