KISSIMMEE, Fla., Feb. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Amscot Financial, a leading provider of convenient, consumer-oriented financial services, invites all to come out and have fun "the Amscot way" at its open house on Saturday, February 9, from noon to 2 p.m. at 3260 Vineland Road in Kissimmee.

The Walk To Cure Diabetes is the fastest growing fund raising event in the history of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, (JDRF). In 2007, the national JDRF raised nearly $100 million with the Walk, which spans more than 200 chapters throughout the United States and six countries. The Central Florida chapter raised more than $815,000 in 2007 with its two premier walks in Central Florida. The first walk is scheduled for March 1 at the University of Central Florida; the second is scheduled for March 15 at Lori Wilson Park in Brevard County.

During the Amscot open house event, children's entertainment will be provided. Radio station WRUM-FM, Rumba 100.3, will broadcast live from Amscot's parking lot and give away prizes. Free refreshments also will be provided.

At the Amscot grand opening, the Child Protection Education of America, Inc. (CPEA), a national nonprofit organization for missing children based in Tampa, will also be available on site to provide free fingerprinting for children through their "ID ME NOW" program.

The program produces a state-of-the-art, specially designed card for parents to keep. The card contains a set of the child's digital fingerprints, a black and white photo, a dental chart, and instructions on how to do a simple DNA collection. Safety brochures are provided with the fingerprint card, as well as an envelope containing further information on how to complete the child safety kit.

This information can assist parents and law enforcement officers involved with a missing child case. An interactive child safety CD-ROM can also be purchased for $5 at the event with profits going to the CPEA for creating the CD-ROM.
