Gaming test lab and product certification consultancy BMM Testlabs announced Tuesday that it has successfully hosted Adam’s Place at the 3rd Annual Best in Gaming Golf Tournament. The event was held on June 8, at Bear’s Best Golf Club in Las Vegas, raising awareness for the non-profit Adam’s Place, which supports children, teens, and families experiencing loss.
"Our 3rd Annual Best in Gaming Golf Tournament was attended by many of our friends and clients in the gaming industry,” said Martin Storm, BMM’s CEO. “We partnered with Adam's Place, a local non-profit center committed to helping children 3-18 coping with tragic loss, to raise awareness for their important work and help them generate program funding."
The non-profit is committed to supporting children, teens and families experiencing loss through their evidence-based Camp Cope programs, activities, and resources. Adam’s Place seeks to promote a lifelong investment in healthy coping skills and tools.
"The COVID-19 pandemic has caused tragic loss for many families, and programs like Adam's Place are helping children and families navigate the grieving process,” said Wendy Anderson, CEO of RG24seven, a BMM Innovation Group company. “It has been a pleasure supporting the team from Adam's Place."
"Social and Emotional Learning delivered through our Camp Cope Curriculum introduces, models, and reinforces healthy coping skills and strategies,” described Kelly Thomas-Boyers, President and Co-Founder of Adam’s Place. “These life skills produce a significant return on investment for children here in Las Vegas and around the globe.”
The grief center for children and families is currently in the process of training school counselors and a variety of community organizations to start their own Camp Cope. The goal is to bring the helpful program to more children in need of them, a mission in which partners’ support plays a key role.
“With the generous support of BMM Testlabs and their network, we will reach more children and families,” added Thomas-Boyers. “We greatly appreciate BMM Testlabs' donation and the contributions of the golfers who bought raffle and mulligan tickets."
The partnership with Adam’s Place is another example of BMM’s initiatives to contribute to nonprofits and organizations helping communities. In April, the test lab presented a donation to the Intertribal Education Foundation at the Indian Gaming Tradeshow & Convention.
The donation, part of the company’s Next Generation initiative, which has been active for six years now, seeks to “make a difference in tomorrow’s tribal communities today.” The contribution is part of BMM’s efforts to provide access to financial and educational resources to ensure the success of tribal youth.
