DALLAS--()--Main Event Entertainment, the fastest-growing family entertainment center in America, is celebrating its new center opening in Pharr, Texas, with a donation of $5,000 to the Boys & Girls Club of Pharr. Doors opened today at the new center; and, to celebrate, the company will host a Grand Opening celebration for the local-area community in its new 58,000-square-foot center on August 16.

Main Event’s charitable contribution includes a financial gift of $2,500 and an additional $2,500 in goods and services for the local-area Boys & Girls Club. The charity will enjoy complimentary parties for the children, tweens and teens it serves throughout the months of August and September.

“It’s great to be operating in the Rio Grande Valley,” said Charlie Keegan, CEO of Main Event Entertainment. “Our new location in Pharr has great energy, just like the community around it. We invite everyone to join us, starting today, to enjoy our newest FUN destination.”

Main Event will host a Grand Opening celebration on Saturday, August 16, that will be open to the public. The celebration will run from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. In addition to the full Main Event experience, events will also include music, entertainment and social media elements, as well as door prizes and other giveaways.

The company opened its doors to the public in Pharr on August 6, and guests can now enjoy its unique “Eat.Bowl.Play.” experience at 500 N. Jackson Road, at the corner of Expressway 83 and Jackson Road, next to Cinemark Pharr Town Center. The new center provides state-of-the-art bowling; multi-level laser tag; a gravity ropes adventure course; over 100 interactive, virtual and video games; regulation-size billiard tables; full-service bars; quality dining experiences and free Wi-Fi access.

As announced previously, the new location is the first of seven the company will open across the U.S. over the next seven months, and the first of two new centers it will open in Texas within that timeframe. Main Event will open another new center in West San Antonio later this year.

Main Event has locations throughout Texas, including Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, Austin, Lubbock and San Antonio. The company’s performance in recent years has positioned it for an aggressive growth strategy that will build on its high-performing centers in Texas and its newest location in Tempe, Arizona, which opened in November 2013.
