On Thursday, April, 9, 2015, over 65 Caesars Entertainment management team volunteers from Paris, Bally’s and Planet Hollywood gathered at Walter V. Long Elementary School to make a huge impact in the school by rolling up their sleeves and volunteering.
Under the leadership of David Hoenemeyer, President of Paris, Bally’s and Planet Hollywood, the management team was so inspired by their first volunteer experience in 2014 and the expertise of United Way’s Community Engagement Team, that they contacted United Way again to create and manage this second volunteer project at Long Elementary School.
Working closely with United Way’s Community Engagement Team, Walter Long Elementary School’s new principal Katie Decker formulated a plan to turn the school into an inviting haven for students, teachers and parents through the assistance of Caesars’ employees and other community volunteers.
Caesars volunteers poured soil and painted walls and asphalt with enthusiasm, creating a marked change in just a couple of hours. Committed to the community, on May 15 Caesars Entertainment also kicks off their United Way workplace campaign.
We thank Caesars Entertainment for your dedication to helping families and children live better lives through your support of our community!
