Mobile Video Game Theater Raises Money Through 'Month of Giving' in July

August 30, 2012 // Franchising.com // Tempe, Ariz. - GameTruck Licensing, LLC will donate $15,010 to Make-A-Wish as a result of their “Month of Giving” in July. Throughout the month of July, GameTruck celebrated their Month of Giving by donating $15 for every event booked, with a $350 donation cap for each participating franchise owner and/or trailer.

“Aligning with Make-A-Wish earlier this year was an exciting step for our organization, and we are happy to say our first system-wide fundraising effort was a huge success,” said Scott Novis, founder and CEO of GameTruck. “The results for our first Month of Giving exceeded our expectations and we hope to increase our donation each year as we repeat the Month of Giving.”

GameTruck—a patented mobile video game theater concept featuring flat-screen HDTVs, comfortable seating, a high-quality sound system and the latest video game consoles—and its franchise owners will participate in more than 500 Make-A-Wish chapter events throughout the year.

About Make-A-Wish

Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. According to a 2011 U.S. study of wish impact, most health professionals surveyed believe a wish-come-true can have positive impacts on the health of children. Kids say wishes give them renewed strength to fight their illnesses, and their parents say these experiences help strengthen the entire family. Based in Phoenix, Make-A-Wish is one of the world’s leading children’s charities, serving children in every community in the United States and its territories. With the help of generous donors and more than 25,000 volunteers, Make-A-Wish grants a wish somewhere in the country every 38 minutes. It has granted more than 212,000 wishes since its inception in 1980; nearly 14,000 in 2011 alone. Visit Make-A-Wish at wish.org and discover how you can share the power of a wish®.
