That (and much more) is exactly what Dave & Busters (D&B) does for Make-A-Wish® Southern Nevada. This purveyor of classic games like Pop-A-Shot and Pac-Man, as well as the latest like Star WarsTM Battle Pod TM, has been a nationwide partner of Make-A-Wish since March of 2012. In that time, D&B has helped us throw some pretty epic wish events, including wish reveals, by opening up their massive arcade to our wish kids, their families, volunteers and supporters.
They have also launched several fundraising initiatives that give video and arcade game lovers the chance to give back to children in their own community. Here are a few of the ways they help our wish kids push play:
Throwback Arcade Game: Each D&B location features a special throwback game that accepts a minimum cash donation of $0.25 to begin gameplay; 100% of the donations go to Make-A-Wish.
Wish Star Sales: Guests can buy a wish star for a donation of a $1 or more to Make-A-Wish, and in return the guest receives a coupon for $10 of free game play (with the purchase of $10 game play).
Food Sales: Eating is believing! D&B makes a $1 donation to Make-A-Wish every time an order of Lotsa Loaded Tots is purchased, and a $0.50/person donation for every Sweets & Berries platter purchased from the group sales menu.
We are so grateful to partners like Dave & Busters. Their support is invaluable to our mission of granting the wish of every eligible child in southern Nevada.
