AGS PARTNERS WITH VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS IN ‘GOLDEN GRAD’ PROMOTION
Three of Las Vegas’ 2020 graduating seniors will win an Apple prize package in recognition of missed milestones due to COVID-19 pandemic.
LAS VEGAS – June 4, 2020: AGS (NYSE: AGS) (or the “Company”), a Las Vegas-based gaming equipment supplier, today announced that it is partnering with the Vegas Golden Knights (“VGK”) National Hockey League franchise on a ‘Golden Grad’ Twitter promotion to honor and recognize Las Vegas 2020 high school graduates.
AGS’ Chief Marketing Officer Julia Boguslawski said, “COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on so many people; we recognize that the pandemic has also been very hard on our graduating high school seniors, who have missed out on their prom, their last season of high school sports, and a traditional graduation ceremony. We wanted to do something for the seniors in our community to acknowledge their missed milestones and to celebrate their achievements. And we couldn’t ask for a better organization to partner with as we launch this promotion – the Vegas-born Vegas Golden Knights.”
AGS, which is entering its third year as a corporate sponsor of the VGK and sponsor of the ‘Play of the Knight’ feature at home games, will launch the ‘Golden Grad’ Twitter promotion on Thursday, June 4th at the VGK Twitter page @GoldenKnights. The VGK will post a tweet about the promotion, encouraging Las Vegas valley graduating seniors to reply with a high school photo and the name of their high school.
After the promotion ends on Thursday, June 11th, three winners will be randomly selected from every eligible 2020 graduating senior who responded to the tweet. The winners will each receive an exciting prize package that includes a MacBook Pro laptop, set of Apple AirPods Pro in-ear headphones, VGK and AGS gift baskets, and a meet-and-greet with a VGK cast member.
