Fundraiser Fridays at Escape Room 831

Posted on May 13th, 2024 by Escape Room 831

Throughout 2024, the Lighthouse District's own Escape Room 831 and Cannery Row's Oscar's Playground are supporting local nonprofit Central Coast Overdose Drug Prevention (CCODP) with Fundraiser Fridays.

Every Friday in 2024, Escape Room 831 and Oscar's Playground will donate a percentage of their proceeds for the day to CCODP. So you can have fun on Fridays while supporting an important initiative working to raise awareness and eliminate overdoses in Monterey, San Benito, and Santa Cruz Counties. Book your escape room here.

Escape Room 831's three New Monterey locations and Oscar's Playground on Cannery Row boast a total of 9 unique, wildly creative escape rooms plus a full arcade lounge only at Oscar's. Both businesses are owned and designed by local couple Christina and Barrie Riddoch.

Why focus on CCODP in 2024? Christina Riddoch commented, "We feel that overdosing is an epidemic that's affecting many families in Monterey County and there's a need to bring awareness to our community."

CCODP is an initiative that focuses on addressing substance use realities through harm reduction strategies, treatment options, and community support services. Their programs include NARCAN Now Boxes, offering free Naloxone at: Monterey Transit Plaza (500 Tyler Street), Monterey Police Department (351 Madison Street), and the Monterey Outreach and Navigation Center (401 Camino El Estero).
