Rivers Casino to kick off multi-site community service celebration this month

October 16, 2023

The event will be held at five Rivers Casinos in four states.

Rivers Casino, along with its parent company Rush Street Gaming, will host “Rivers Gives Day of Service 2023,” a synchronized community celebration at its multiple casino locations on October 17.

More than 6,000 team members from the company’s five Pennsylvania, Illinois, New York and Virginia locations have committed to participate in the multi-site event.

The celebration is a combined initiative between the casinos, a first for the company’s ongoing “Rivers Gives” program. Volunteers from each casino have committed to give nearly 2,000 hours to benefit its local nonprofit partners. Along with donating time, the casinos will hold donation drives and contribute through corporate giving.

The “Rivers Gives” program will increase its focus on improving local communities by focusing on health and human services, US military and veteran support, and through economic opportunity and workforce development.

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Rivers Casino will offer PINKtober specials to casino guests during the month. Visitors can purchase pink cupcakes, donuts and pastries. Part of the proceeds from these sales will be donated to the American Cancer Society.

Rivers Casino and Rush Street Gaming CEO Tim Drehkoff shared the company’s desire to improve the quality of life for its surrounding communities.

He commented, “Rivers Casino is committed to the health, well-being and economic vitality of the communities in which we operate and to those who have served our country.  

“By concentrating our efforts around these key areas, we expect to heighten our impact while continuing other community engagement initiatives throughout the year.”

Rush Street Gaming has developed casinos throughout the US, including in Mississippi, Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Illinois, New York and Virgina.

He fields a variety of questions - not shying away from any of them - on why 'myths' about casinos and a fear of the unknown should be dispelled, as well as acknowledging the strength of rival bids and discussing opposition to the project.
