Coastal Amusements recently collaborated with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to help a young man’s dreams come true. The child, a beneficiary of the non-profit’s good deeds, wanted to play Subway Surfers and Temple Run 2 – in the full-sized coin-op version — in the comfort of his own home. Coastal stepped up to make this happen.
“We were thrilled when asked if we could help,” said Sal Mirando, co-owner of Coastal. “Lenny (Dean) and I discussed the matter and immediately agreed to grant his wish. When you are given the opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life, you take it. It’s that simple.”
Coastal enlisted the help of American Vending Sales (AVS) and the company’s VP of Sales, Tony Shamma, to make the arrangements and deliver the games to the kid’s home. “Tony immediately signed on to help,” Sal said. “His response was, ‘Who could say no!’” The full story will be released at www.wish.org and www.coastalamusements.com in a few weeks.
