Loose Casino Change Makes Huge Difference for
Local Palm Beach School
Miami, Fla. – January 3, 2018 – Magic City Casino, Miami’s first casino to offer Las Vegas style slot machines, donated $10,000 to Potentia Academy, on Tuesday, December 19, 2017. Potentia Academy, a Greenacres area private school that works exclusively with students with unique learning abilities, proudly received the donation in front of their entire student body and faculty. The funds for the donation were generated from loose change, in the form of partially used vouchers, that were left on the Magic City Casino floor over the course of 2017. The donation is part of a multi-year effort that has bestowed “loose” change to worthy community partners throughout South Florida, which has generated upwards of $50,000 over the past five years.
“Magic City Casino is thrilled to give back throughout the holiday season to local partners that are serving an immediate need in our community. We commend Potentia Academy for the invaluable role it plays in the lives of its students, their families and our community,” said Scott Savin, Chief Operating Officer of Magic City Casino.
Potentia Academy, founded in 2009, is a nonprofit, private middle and high school that offers a distinctive approach to teaching that is tailored to students’ individual needs and pace of learning. Since its founding, the school has expanded its facility, added faculty and enhanced its curriculum. The school’s mission is to empower students with unique learning abilities to reach their full learning potential and to acquire the living, social, and job skills necessary to transition to independent living.
“Potentia Academy is thrilled to receive this very generous $10,000 grant from Magic City Casino. We strive to help students with unique learning abilities flourish in a nurturing atmosphere. This donation will certainly help our organization support that objective,” said Janice Meeks, principal of Potentia Academy.
