Golden Entertainment, Inc. donated a total of 2,608 holiday meals to ‘Feed A Family’ through the company’s 9th annual charitable initiative at Aquarius Casino Resort, Edgewater Casino Resort, Arizona Charlie’s Decatur and Arizona Charlie’s Boulder.
At Aquarius and Edgewater, ‘Feed A Family’ donations were accepted from Sunday, Nov. 1 through Friday, 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, which included a seven-pound ham or 12-pound turkey along with potatoes, gravy, vegetables, rolls, cranberry sauce, stuffing, pie and whipped cream. The Laughlin resorts raised $16,603 to feed more than 2,148 families in need.
“We are amazed by the generosity of people and organizations in our community who helped us and ‘Feed A Family’ provide thousands of meals to families for the holidays,” said Sean Hammond, senior vice president and general manager of Aquarius Casino Resort and Edgewater Casino Resort. “We love the tri-state area and we’re grateful that we were able to reciprocate that love to our local families and make their holidays a little brighter.”
In addition to casino points and monetary donations, both Aquarius and Edgewater also hosted a Christmas tree silent auction to benefit ‘Feed A Family’ through Sunday, Dec. 20. With the Christmas tree action, the raised amount was $9,150, equating to more than 360 family meals. In total, through the Christmas Tree auction, cash donations and True Rewards points contributions, Golden Entertainment’s Laughlin resorts raised $25,753.
For every 12,000 points contributed by True Rewards members between Monday, Nov. 2 and Sunday, 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; 50 baskets gifted to families for Thanksgiving, and 50 for Christmas.
“In a year unlike many, we feel more grateful than ever to be able to partner with ‘Feed A Family’ again,” said Jeremy Jenson, general manager of Arizona Charlie’s. “Especially during the holiday season, we feel blessed to be able to bring food to the table for some families, and hopefully smiles to their faces.”
