I know our attendees will be excited to know that we are hosting a Casino Night, especially in support of the American Cancer Society. Cancer affects us all in some way and supporting this cause has special meaning to many of our attendees.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 20, 2009
Attendees at the 11th eCommerce Summit, taking place this year in Atlanta, will have a chance to sharpen their competitive skills and support an important philanthropic cause at American Cancer Society Casino Night. The charitable tournament is sponsored by SafetyPay and will take place after the first day of ecommerce educational sessions end on Wednesday, June 3. All proceeds raised during the event will benefit the American Cancer Society; benefit winners will receive non-cash prizes.
The American Cancer Society combines an unyielding passion with nearly a century of experience to save lives and end suffering from cancer. As a global grassroots force of more than three million volunteers, the Society fights for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community.
In 2006, a Charity Poker Tournament at the Las Vegas eCommerce Summit raised thousands of dollars for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (Netsmartz). Over the years, eCommerce Summits have supported numerous charities, such as City Harvest, Disabled Online Users Association, NOLA Aquarium charity and Habitat for Humanity.
"Our Vegas tournament was a phenomenal success both in terms of the fun everyone had and the positive impact we were able to make to Netsmartz," said Brandon Dupsky, Managing Director for eCommerce Merchants. "I know our attendees will be excited to know that we are hosting a Casino Night, especially in support of the American Cancer Society. Cancer affects us all in some way and supporting this cause has special meaning to many of our attendees."
The eCommerce Summit (http://www.ecommerce-summit.com) is two full days of educational sessions from industry experts and marketplace executives for eCommerce Merchants to learn and share with fellow merchants the latest trends and best practices to help them grow their businesses. Casino Night is made possible due to the generous support and sponsorship of SafetyPay (http://www.SafetyPay.com), a global online e-payment system revolutionizing global payments to a new level.
"Safety Pay is very proud to be a new partner with eCommerce Merchants and support a great cause at the same time," says Victor Napp with Safety Pay. "We look forward to helping online merchants expand their sales globally without all the risk and we look forward to raising a lot of money for charity."
