CHICAGO, IL--NEC Display Solutions of America, in partnership with the Jimmy V Foundation, announced a charity event at InfoComm 2010 that will land one attendee a trip to the 2010 ESPY Awards show in Los Angeles.

Proceeds from this win-win promotion will benefit the Jimmy V Foundation while providing an opportunity for participating exhibitors to dramatically increase their exposure at the conference. InfoComm 2010 will take place on June 9-11, 2010, at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev.

Show exhibitors have the opportunity to participate with NEC by signing up to be listed on the “V Punch Card.” Attendees who visit NEC’s booth (No. N903) can begin their ESPY Quest by donating a dollar to the V Foundation, and receiving a rubber V Foundation bracelet and V Punch Card. They must then visit every exhibitor listed on the punch card for the chance to win the trip to the 2010 ESPY Awards.

Participating exhibitors include: Almo Professional AV (Booth No. N1125); Chief Manufacturing, Inc. (Booth No. C4435); Gefen, Inc. (Booth No. N1751); Intel (Booth No. N903); Jelco (Booth No. N2039); Peerless Industries, Inc. (Booth No. C5842); and Stampede Presentation Products (Booth No. C4763).

For every attendee that visits a participating booth, the exhibitor will match the $1 donation. All proceeds of the bracelets, punch cards and matched gifts will benefit the Jimmy V Foundation for cancer research. The winner of the trip must be present at the drawing at 10 a.m. on June 11 in the NEC booth.

“This is a tremendous opportunity to help a wonderful cause, and one that is particularly meaningful to us because of the NEC employees and family members who have unfortunately been beset by this disease,” said Ashley Flaska, Vice President of Marketing for NEC Display Solutions. “Reminiscent of Jimmy Valvano running around the floor following North Carolina State’s monumental upset of Houston in the 1983 NCAA men’s basketball championship, we’d love to see the same exuberance from folks getting their V Punch Cards punched at InfoComm.”

The 18th Annual ESPY Awards ceremony will take place July 14 at the renowned Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles and will be hosted by “Saturday Night Live’s” Seth Meyers. On that night, the elite from the world of sports and entertainment will come together for a live broadcast, the first since 2003, to recognize the best plays, biggest upsets and most outstanding performances across all sports.

In a fitting tribute to the passion he displayed in the game of life, Valvano was awarded the ESPY’s first Arthur Ashe Courage Award during the inaugural show in 1993. It was during his acceptance speech that he announced the creation of The V Foundation for Cancer Research and implored people to, “Don’t Give Up - Don’t Ever Give Up.” ESPN continues to honor Valvano’s memory by allowing the V Foundation to serve as the official charity for the ESPY Awards.
