Amscot participates as a Charity Challenge sponsor

Amscot Financial was a presenting sponsor of the Charity Challenge event in Orlando on May 20. 

More than 90 teams from Central Florida area businesses squared off in six athletic events to raise money for local charities.

Charity Challenge XXI was held on the southern grounds of the Florida Citrus Bowl. Contestants matched up in basketball, volleyball, tug-of-war and other contests. Amscot helped Charity Challenge meet its goal of raising $200,000. 

Since 1987, Charity Challenge has awarded more than $2 million to hundreds of local charities. Last year, $250,000 in cash was awarded to nearly 100 charitable organizations including the University of Central Florida, Florida Hospital, the Epilepsy Association of Central Florida, the Center for Drug Free Living, Christian Help and the Seminole Community College Foundation.
