Gamesman takes Target 25K initiative to G2E

17 September 2015

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Gamesman, the international gaming equipment, components and systems manufacturer, part of Esterline Corporation, will be using its presence at G2E to bring its Target 25k fundraising activities 'Stateside'. Launched at February's ICE exhibition in London, Target 25k is a Gamesman campaign to raise £25,000 (US$39,000) to fund research into Mesothelioma, an aggressive form of lung cancer which the company's Technical Director James Cove is receiving treatment for. The U.S. fundraising event comprises a charity poker tournament to be held on Sunday, Sept. 27 at Green Valley Ranch Resort, Spa and Casino, starting at 6 p.m.

Gamesman Sales Manager Martin Rigby explained, "Mesothelioma is a form of lung cancer caused by exposure to asbestos and is incurable, and at the age of just 43 it came as a huge shock, not just for James and his immediate family but also for his friends and colleagues, many of whom have known him since Gamesman was formed in 1996.

"Since his diagnosis James has undergone some particularly invasive surgery in his battle against this terrible disease and is currently well, against all the odds, which is wonderful news. However, this does not detract from the fact that this is a life-limiting condition, something that James has to live with every day and does so with typical good humour and positivity.

"In order to try and do something to support James in his fight and help raise both awareness and funds, we launched Target 25 at ICE in February. Our aim is to raise a minimum of £25,000 in the course of one year through various activities in support of two charities that James has chosen, Mesothelioma UK and the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.

"To date we have raised nearly £20,000, a huge achievement, but we want to do more. The charity poker tournament will start at 6 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 27 at Green Valley Ranch. It is open to anyone who wishes to take part or simply attend. Buy-in is $100 with prizes and refreshments provided by Gamesman. Proceeds from the night will go to Target 25."
