April 24, 2019 – A South Florida-based family of businesses, inclusive of Levatas, VXIT and 2TON, with offices in Palm Beach Gardens, West Palm Beach, and Delray Beach respectively, announced today that the companies have reserved the entire 270-seat IMAX Theater located in West Palm Beach on Thursday, April 25th, for the premiere of Avengers: Endgame. The highly anticipated movie, which is just the second Hollywood film to be shot entirely with IMAX cameras, is expected to be the biggest of the year, with early predictions suggesting record-breaking turnouts at the box office.
In addition to the companies’ own staff and their families, the group has also extended invitations to five nonprofit organizations in the local community working with children and teens, providing them 100 of the purchased tickets.
The nonprofit groups include KOP Mentoring, a character-building, mentorship and gang prevention program; EJS Project, which encourages and supports Delray Beach teens to become productive leaders in their communities; Milagro Center, whose mission is to ensure the social and academic success of underserved children and youth; Opportunity Knocks, an organization dedicated to providing opportunities for under-resourced and economically challenged children and families in South Florida and both the Delray Beach Police and Fire Explorers.
“This event isn’t just about reaching out to underserved groups in our local community,” says Ryan Boylston, Founder and CEO at 2TON. “Of course, that’s part of it. We want them to come have a great time with us. But more importantly, we want to recognize these kids because they deserve it. From amazing science and tech projects to inspiring community leadership, they are doing some pretty big things right now and we wanted to treat them to a fun night out.”
Levatas Founder and Chairman Chris Nielsen echoed Mr. Boylston’s sentiments and said that he was also excited about the opportunities to come. “There’s no mistaking that these kids are talented and driven. But even with all their initiative, they still need connections, which is why we’re giving each and every one of them our business cards. They’ll leave tonight with a direct line to three local business leaders eager to take their call.”
In addition to the free tickets, 2TON has secured popcorn and drinks for the kids and teens, courtesy of Delray Beachpersonal injury attorney, Lee Cohen, of Cohen and Newmark, PLLC.
