Golden Entertainment, Inc. and their generous players donated a record-breaking total of 2,610 holiday meals in Nevada, Arizona and California to ‘Feed A Family’ through the company’s 10th annual charitable initiative at four of its Nevada properties: Aquarius Casino Resort, Edgewater Casino Resort, Arizona Charlie’s Boulder and Arizona Charlie’s Decatur.
At Aquarius and Edgewater Casino Resorts, the ‘Feed A Family’ promotion took place from Monday, Nov. 1 through Saturday, Dec. 25. For every 25,000 True Rewards points contributed or $25 donated, the properties donated one food box, sized to feed a family of four, to local area food banks, which included ham or turkey along with potatoes, gravy, vegetables, rolls, cranberry sauce, stuffing, pie and whipped cream. The Laughlin resorts raised enough to feed 10,040 individuals over the holiday season.
Aquarius and Edgewater also hosted the 10th annual Christmas tree silent auction to benefit ‘Feed A Family.’ The auction ran from Saturday, Nov. 27 through Saturday, Dec. 25 and both properties raised a total of $17,700, equating to more than 708 family meals. Eight fully decorated and individually themed Christmas trees were bought outright and delivered to families in Laughlin; Bullhead City, Arizona; Kingman, Arizona; and to the New Catholic Charities Homeless Shelter. In total, through the Christmas Tree auction, cash donations and True Rewards points contributions, Golden Entertainment’s Laughlin resorts raised $42,201.
“Year after year we are amazed by how our community comes together to generously donate to ‘Feed A Family’, helping to provide meals to thousands of neighbors in need each year,” said Sean Hammond, senior vice president and general manager of Aquarius Casino Resort and Edgewater Casino Resort. “We are so thankful for the opportunity to help brighten the holidays for local families.”
For every 12,000 points contributed by True Rewards members between Monday, Nov. 1 and Monday, Dec. 13, Arizona Charlie’s Decatur and Boulder locations collectively donated a basket of food to the Southern Nevada Housing Authority. Arizona Charlie’s donated a total of 100 baskets of food.
“We look forward to our ‘Feed a Family” initiative every year,” said Jeremy Jenson, general manager of Arizona Charlie’s. “Giving back to the community is incredibly important to us, and we’re glad we can do it by providing meals for the tables of local families.”
