FlowPlay has announced that it has raised an additional $65,000 for the American Cancer Society (ACS) through its Vegas World in-game October fundraising campaign. The fundraiser is part of FlowPlay’s broader corporate giving program and ongoing support for the ACS.
This follows FlowPlay’s major fundraising milestone with the ACS over the summer, lifting its total raised for the organization to $315,000. In direct support of funding critical research and patient care for childhood cancer, players within Vegas World purchased virtual ACS-branded charms throughout the month of October.
“For many in our Vegas World community, the devastating, life-altering effects of cancer are personal. It is a huge reason why we are so dedicated to supporting the ACS. I am always humbled by the stories our players share with us, and the generous support our community continues to show in the fight against cancer. Their participation in these fundraisers gives me hope that our donations will continue to make a meaningful impact for patients and families in need,” Derrick Morton, CEO of FlowPlay, said.
“The American Cancer Society is so grateful to FlowPlay and Vegas World players for helping fund our lifesaving mission. It is a critical time when cancer research funding is at risk which could mean delays in the next cancer breakthrough discovering new and better treatments and cures. Thank you for the tremendous support and helping to ensure this doesn’t happen,” Daniel Widner, ACS vice president of Regional Distinguished Partners, said.
