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.
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.
