Perfect World Entertainment, the publisher of Star Trek Online has launched a new partnership to help raise funds and awareness for the Girls and Boys Club of America.

The initiative is called Perfect World Level Up and throughout the year, Perfect World Entertainment will raise funds and awareness through cause marketing promotions, employee giving and volunteering to help Boys & Girls Clubs make a positive difference and build great futures for America’s youth. To help start the program Star Trek Online will introduce two special downloadable bundles of which 100% of the costs will be donated to The Boys and Girls Club of America.
Yoon Im, CEO of Perfect World Entertainment says: “We’re proud to introduce Perfect World Level Up and our partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America in our inaugural year, to support the next generation of leaders. Given the tremendous success of our previous charity drives, which collectively raised over $350,000 in donation funds, it made perfect sense to establish an official charity program that would continue this positive work, and partner with organizations, like Boys & Girls Clubs of America, who strive to make a positive difference in the world.”
Star Trek Online’s Executive Producer Andre Emerson adds “As a Boys & Girls Clubs alumni, I’m thrilled about the partnership and the Star Trek Online charity drive supporting Boys & Girls Clubs of America. My time as a Club kid was an incredible experience that had a huge impact on my life. It’s an honour to have found a way to give back to the organization with the Star Trek Online team.”
