Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino Salutes Veterans

(MARICOPA, Ariz. – Nov. 2, 2021) – Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino, long-known for its corporate giving and community support, will once again honor Veterans and active military throughout the month of November. Events organized by Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino’s HERO committee and the SALUTE Business Impact Group will create awareness and offer support for all community Veterans and active military as well as the organization’s 30+ Veteran team members.

“America celebrates Veterans Day on November 11, but we believe it’s important to celebrate Veterans and active military all year long,” says Robert Piwowar, Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino senior engagement specialist and SALUTE chairman. “In fact, we actively look to hire Veterans in our community. Service members who are looking to grow in their career in a supportive environment would find Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino a perfect fit.”

The Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino SALUTE Business Impact Group (BIG) actively seeks to bring together team members who are Veterans and Veteran allies who embrace the core values of duty, honor and selfless service. The purpose is to cultivate a diverse and inclusive culture through grassroots efforts in assisting Veterans in a variety of ways including fundraisers, donation drives and of course volunteer opportunities.

HERO is a team member-based volunteer program in which Harrah’s staff and their families make noteworthy and visible contributions to the community by donating their time, skills, expertise and compassion to dozens of volunteer projects throughout the community.

On October 22, Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino made a donation of $3,000 to the Diana Gregory Outreach Services to support the organization’s Veggies for Vets program that provides fresh vegetables to seniors and veterans throughout the Valley. In 2021, the organization assisted 10,000 seniors and Veterans and hopes to reach more that 15,000 in 2022. Additional initiatives that will honor Veterans and active military during the month of November include:

  • November 6: SALUTE is sponsoring and participating in Maricopa’s Veterans Parade. Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino is providing box lunches and prizes.
  • November 11: A team member Veteran drawing for a chance to win one of four American Flags.
  • November 11 (Veteran’s Day): Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino will give all Veterans $20 food vouchers
  • November 4 – 14: Up to 35 percent off room stays for all Veterans
  • November 30: Team members will show their support of active troops by writing thank you letters.
