Casino Provides $18,000 to Local Veterans Group and Free Buffet for Military Personnel
PITTSBURGH – Nov. 8, 2013 – Rivers Casino is kicking off the holiday season by saying “thanks” to our troops and giving back to the men and women who keep our country safe.
Earlier this month, Rivers partnered with Operation Troop Appreciation (OTA), a group dedicated to providing soldiers with items from their wish lists. On Nov. 2 and 3, players that donated $10 to OTA received $10 Free Slot Play. In total, Rivers’ players and Team Members generated nearly $18,000 for OTA. The money will be used to send clothing, linens, snacks, entertainment items and other morale-boosting goodies to those serving our country abroad.
Rivers Casino will continue to give thanks to our troops by offering a free lunch buffet on Veterans Day, Monday, Nov. 11. All service men and women, active and retired, are invited to receive this free lunch at Grand View Buffet from 11 a.m.—3 p.m. All attendees must present a military ID or Veterans Card to be eligible.
“Our players and Team Members showed great enthusiasm for this cause, and these initiatives are just small ways to say ‘thank you’,” said Craig Clark, Rivers Casino’s General Manager. “We’re honored to partner with Operation Troop Appreciation and assist with their efforts to serve military personnel.”
