City of Miami Gardens & PlayDate Miami Presents…Give & Play for Relay for Life
Residents and the entire South Florida community is invited to enjoy a fun-filled evening of games and music in support of the City of Miami Gardens’ Relay for Life team.
MIAMI GARDENS, FL, April 11, 2011- In an effort to creatively engage the citizens of Miami Gardens and the South Florida community at large to take part in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life event, the City of Miami Gardens has teamed up with PlayDate Miami (subsidiary of Timeless Entertainment Concepts) to host Give & Play for Relay for Life. The event will be held on Friday, April 22nd from 7PM -12AM at the City’s all new Betty T. Ferguson Center located at 3000 NW 199th St, Miami Gardens. Contribution is $10, and proceeds from the Give & Play event will go towards the City’s $15,000 Relay for Life fundraising goal.
Give & Play is a cause-based marketing initiative based on the popular PlayDate brand and offers charities and non-profit organizations a new way to raise awareness and financial support for a worthy cause based on the idea of playing games and having fun. Just like the PlayDate Miami event concept, attendees of Give & Play come out and enjoy all types of classic nostalgic games like Monopoly, Taboo, Scrabble, Uno, Connect Four, and even childhood favorites like Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots and Hungry Hungry Hippos. Interactive games also include a Hula Hoop contest, Twister, Adult Musical Chairs, and even Simon Says.
“I am supportive officially and personally to the fight against cancer and their research. I encourage everyone to be a team player and not a spectator,” shares Miami Gardens Mayor Shirley Gibson. “As a team, we all win!”
Ryan M. Hill, Sr., Executive Vice President/COO of Timeless Entertainment Concepts, adds “In tough times, everyone needs a helping hand to survive and thrive. The added pressure is also on charities to continually develop creative programming to engage donors. That’s why the Give & Play concept works. It gives organizations a unique, low-cost, and interactive way to engage donors, raise funds, and have fun outside of the typical galas and charity dinners.”
