PrimeTime Amusements Builds Props and Statues for
18th Annual InterContinental Miami Make-A-Wish Ball
PrimeTime’s Theming Division “Prop Creations” Creates Life-Like Foam Buddha,
Elephant, Ruins and More for Bollywood-Style Gala on Saturday, November 3
Fort Lauderdale, FL, October 31, 2012: Prop Creations, the theming division of PrimeTime Amusements, a global operator, seller and event renter of video arcade machines and simulators, is proud to have been chosen to build the statues for The 18th Annual InterContinental Miami Make-A-Wish Ball. The event, which will take place at the InterContinental Miami (100 Chopin Plaza, Miami, FL) on Saturday November 3, 2012 at 7:00 PM features a Bollywood theme. Prop Creations was hired by event coordinator Shiraz Events (www.shirazevents.com) to build ancient ruins, a larger-than-life Buddha and elephant out of foam to help create the environment.
Through its theming division, PrimeTime Amusements is now able to create custom themed
environments, large format items, foam architecture, props, specialty signage and more. As an
extension of PrimeTime Amusement’s near two-decades of experience in the arcade sales, rentals and operations business and more recent foray into Family Entertainment Center (FEC) consulting, theming or prop creation was the next logical step for the company.
“This is truly the most exciting venture and opportunity PrimeTime Amusements has seen in a long
time,” said David Goldfarb, President of PrimeTime Amusements. “The ability to create props, figures, and set-design for our customers is a huge advantage for us. And we are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with such a worthy foundation as Make-A-Wish and help make the Ball a huge success.”
The 18th Annual InterContinental Miami Make-A-Wish Ball is the “can’t miss” event of the South Florida social scene. In its 17-year history, the Ball has raised more than $10.7 million, enough to grant the heartfelt wishes of more than 2,300 children with life-threatening medical conditions. This premier event features dinner, drinks, dancing and the chance to bid on fantasy items and experiences in the famed Live & Silent Auctions. This year, Gabrielle Anwar of the hit TV show “Burn Notice” will return as Celebrity Auctioneer.
