July 25, 2016 — Intercard, Inc., a leader in cash management solutions for the amusement and casino industries, has teamed up with GameTime family entertainment centers in Florida to support victims’ families and survivors of the Pulse tragedy in Orlando by facilitating donations through game card purchases.
GameTime guests have the option of making a donation when purchasing their game card, with 100% of these guest-driven donations going directly to the OneOrlando Fund. The OneOrlando Fund is a project of Strengthen Orlando, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, which is ensuring that funds are distributed directly to victims’ families and survivors in an open and transparent manner. Intercard donated 66,000 account numbers for game cards. The rainbow-colored cards are emblazoned with “#OrlandoStrong.”
“We expect to get $1 to $2 per game card, which will enable us to donate at least $66,000 to support the victim’s families and survivors of the Pulse tragedy,” said Mike Abecassis, CEO of GameTime.
“We’re honored that Mike and his team approached us with the idea and the opportunity to support the cause,” said Scott Sherrod, CEO of Intercard. “Mike runs a great organization, and he clearly cares about his community.”
GameTime, led by CEO Michael Abecassis, owns and operates seven family entertainment centers throughout Florida: “Play and Eat” arcade, restaurant and full-bar venues in Fort Myers, Miami and Tampa; and “Play Your Way” arcade-only venues in Mary Esther, Panama City, Sebring and Vero Beach.
