OAKLAND, Calif., Nov. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Canines for Disabled Kids organization has been chosen to receive "Big Fish Casino's Impact Award." Each quarter the Big Fish Casino team selects one team member who has made a significant impact on the success of the team and product during that quarter. The selected team member then chooses a charity to receive the "Big Fish Casino Impact Award." The amount of the award is based on the quarterly success of Big Fish Casino, a top ten, top-grossing social mobile casino game and platform.
The second Impact Award to be granted is to the charitable organization, Canines for Disabled Kids. This worthy cause received a donation from Big Fish that represented a percentage of Big Fish Casino's success during the second quarter of 2014. The team member that chose the organization thought that the pairing of disabled children with dogs needed to be supported and believes in the charity's mission of "supporting the creation of child-canine service teams to promote independence and social awareness."
"Our Impact Award program is good for everyone – it helps our employees feel added value for what they do and have achieved in the quarter, and it is good for the communities that the various charities serve," said Carey DiJulio, general manager and vice president of Big Fish Casino. "Canines for Disabled Kids helps not only the children become more independent but also raises awareness for the benefits that service dogs provide to their owners and the community."
