FlowPlay has raised $70,000 via its flagship Vegas World social casino, which will be used to support the American Cancer Society‘s ‘Get Screened’ awareness efforts.
Throughout the month of May, FlowPlay offered a virtual ACS get screened-branded charm in Vegas World, which was available for players to purchase in support of the ACS.
“Throughout all of the challenges over the past 16 months – physical, emotional and economic – it is remarkable to see the number of FlowPlay players who have continued to play and donate during our fundraising events with the ACS,” said Derrick Morton, CEO of FlowPlay.
“I am humbled by the generosity of our players since we began partnering with the ACS in 2016. As we continue to build on our record-setting momentum, I implore all individuals and organisations to see how and where they can support organisations in their own communities.”
The ‘Get Screened’ initiative aims to encourage people to get their recommended cancer screenings, many of which were delayed due to COVID.
“We are extremely grateful to FlowPlay and to Vegas World players for continuing to support our efforts,” added Carolyn Williams-Goldman, interim executive vice president west region at the American Cancer Society.
“Finding cancer earlier can mean all the difference in a patient’s treatment options and their outcome. Now is the time for everyone who put off their cancer screenings to get them scheduled.”
