LIFETIME AWARD CHARITY AD JOURNAL

HONORING RALPH COPPOLA

Six years ago, the AAMA dramatically changed the way we honor our annual Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient. We now celebrate the honoree with a Lifetime Achievement Award – Souvenir Ad Journal, the proceeds of which go to support AAMCF Charities. We’re so pleased to share with you that over these 6 years, this souvenir ad journal has raised nearly $500,000 for AAMCF Charities. That speaks volumes to the character and quality of the individuals being honored and the charitable nature of you, our members.

RALPH COPPOLA
Thank you to our members, the industry, and the Coppola family for giving us the opportunity to honor a man who made a difference in all our lives by generously donating to the Ralph Coppola Souvenir Ad Journal. In doing so, you’re not just acknowledging the extraordinary contributions Ralph made to the industry he loved, your donation is helping countless children and their families get through what for many are their most difficult times.

The Souvenir Award Journal was distributed Thursday, September 12, 2019, during the AAMA Annual Meeting Gala & Awards Dinner at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center Hotel. All proceeds from the Ad Journal will go toward the American Amusement Machine Charitable Foundation. To date, the AAMCF has donated over $2 million to children’s charities across the globe.

J. RICHARD OLTMANN MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP

oltmann-photoJ. Richard Oltmann, an amusement industry icon, celebrated life as an accomplished operator, location owner, game designer and all around innovator. His passion and generosity for the industry were unsurpassed. From classes and tours at his Enchanted Castle location to one-on-one consulting sessions with industry colleagues, Richard dedicated his life to the betterment of the industry.

In 2010, Mr. Oltmann was acknowledged with the Lifetime Achievement Award by the American Amusement Machine Association (AAMA). Mr. Oltmann was known as one of the most creative minds in the industry for uncompromising locations he ran and the award-winning products he designed and produced. His brilliant business acumen was only surpassed by the high standard of integrity he held himself to, the compassion he displayed towards others and his generous sharing of best practices with the entire industry. “It is my passion to give back all that I learned to make this industry a better place than when I started,” he said when presented with the award in Las Vegas.

Mr. Oltmann lost his courageous battle with cancer on May 30th, 2015. In keeping with his passion and focus on education, his wife of 51 years, Diane; son, Richie; and daughter, Dawn, have worked with the American Amusement Machine Charitable Foundation (AAMCF) to establish the J. Richard Oltmann Memorial Scholarship Fund. The AAMCF is honored to be a part of continuing Richard’s legacy.

To donate to the J. Richard Oltmann Memorial Scholarship Fund, please contact an AAMCF representative at 847.290.9171 or email [email protected]
