Harrah’s Ak-Chin(MARICOPA, Ariz. – Feb. 22, 2018) – In 2017, Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino made a large impact in the community through its HERO program. HERO is an employee-based volunteer program in which Harrah’s staff and their families make noteworthy and visible contributions to the community. They do this by donating their time, skills, expertise and compassion to dozens of volunteer projects throughout the community.

Harrah’s employees knocked its initial volunteer goal of 15,000 hours out of the park and ended up contributing a total of 24,979 volunteer hours in 2017. More than 76 percent of the casino’s employees participated in a HERO activity in 2017.  Once again, the casino ranked in the top three, coming in third place, across the entire Caesars Entertainment brand for its October Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign and second in the brand for its CodeGreen sustainability efforts during the month of April.

The most tangible way Harrah’s philanthropic efforts can be seen is through the organizations and causes the casino supported this past year:  F.O.R. Maricopa; Komen Breast Cancer 3-Day; Phoenix Rescue Mission; American Cancer Society; Phoenix Children's Hospital; Maricopa Against Abuse; United Way of Pinal County; Habitat for Humanity and The National Ovarian Cancer Coalition.

For 2018, Harrah’s has set a goal of completing more than 16,000 volunteer hours with a more than 90 percent employee participation rate.
