LAUGHLIN – Employees of two Laughlin casino resorts have designated the area’s premier emergency services non-profit organization, River Fund, to receive more than $26,400 raised through volunteer efforts. The employees are members of the Caesars HERO program.

A large portion of the donation had been raised by employees in the Tropicana Laughlin ICE program. Following an acquisition that created the new Caesars Entertainment, both Harrah’s HERO and Tropicana Laughlin community volunteers agreed that River Fund should receive the donation under the new Caesars HERO banner.

During a ceremony at the Tropicana Laughlin, River Fund President/CEO Mike Conner and board chair Margaret Gabaldon accepted the donation, presented by representatives of Harrah’s Laughlin/Tropicana Laughlin management and HERO volunteers.
“Caesars Entertainment is committed to being good partners with our community,” said Jerry
“Buddy” Jackson, the Harrah’s Laughlin/Tropicana Laughlin Director of Finance and a River Fund board
member. “Our team members and leadership team in Laughlin recognize the efforts and great work of
the River Fund to touch the lives of the members of our community that may need a helping hand and
we are very pleased to be able to partner with such a positive and beneficial organization as the River

Since its founding in 2010, River Fund has provided more than $3.3 million in emergency crisis
and hardship assistance to area individuals, families and non-profit organizations. In addition to utility
payment assistance, other basic needs include rent money, food, temporary shelter, medical and
pharmaceutical needs, vehicle repairs, and similar issues, resulting in many requests. River Fund has
also helped locals dealing with homelessness, domestic violence, cancer, memory loss, veterans
assistance, and disaster assistance.
“The donation from Caesars Entertainment’s two local resorts, and Caesars HERO volunteers, will help many people in our Tri-State area,” Conner said. “Our mantra is ‘locals helping locals,’ and Caesars HERO members have demonstrated that.” -more-
