Amscot to Celebrate Viera Branch Grand Opening on Saturday, October 24th, While Supporting Local Non-Profit Organization

VIERA, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Amscot is set to celebrate the grand opening of its Viera branch at 8530
North Wickham Road on Saturday, October 24th from noon to 2 p.m. As part
of the grand opening celebration, Amscot will be donating $500 to
Candlelighters of Brevard, Inc., a non profit organization that is
dedicated to children with cancer and their families by offering
emotional support and financial assistance. From economic assistance to
emotional encouragement, they help families survive the extreme
physical, psychological and practical hardships of this disease. Rep.
Ritch Workman will be presenting the check on behalf of Amscot.

In addition to supporting Candlelighters of Brevard, Inc., the grand
opening event will also offer an array of activities for families.
Everyone wins something when they spin our prize wheel, including a $100
Publix Gift Card for one lucky person! Bike helmets will be given to the
first 100 kids to arrive and there will be radio station giveaways from
WA1A 107.1 FM as they broadcast live from Amscot’s parking lot. Free
refreshments and lunch from Panera Bread will be provided and there will
be giveaways from Western Union and MetroPCS. An Amscot recruiter will
be on hand to talk about the many exciting career opportunities
available with Amscot.

“Through the years, Amscot has served countless Florida families with
convenient financial services that help them get on with the business of
life. When we hold events like this, it’s only natural that our focus on
families and children remains front and center,” says Ian MacKechnie,
Amscot’s Founder & CEO.

The Child Rescue Network will be on hand for a free kid’s fingerprinting
program. Their Safety ID Program will weigh and measure kids, take a
thumbprint and photograph and give parents a laminated Safety ID Card to
put in their wallets. These valuable tools save lives and can help
quickly reunite a lost child with his family.

access to financial services. Amscot offers cash advances, check
cashing, electronic bill payment, money transfer services, prepaid
cards, notary services, ATMs, copying and faxing service. Additionally,
