When the Nepal earthquake hit and killed thousands of people, communities around the world came together and raised funds for those impacted by the tragic event.
At the River Rock Casino Resort, colleagues rallied together and raised $1,300. The donation was made to the Canadian Red Cross and further matched by the Canadian Federal Government bringing the total to $2,600. In addition, support was also provided by donating the River Rock Show Theatre space and equipment, value of $8,000, to the organizers of the Nepal Fundraiser held at the theatre on May 23.
“By donating the River Rock theatre space, equipment and labour hours, we were able to support the efforts of the organizers whose goal was to raise as much money as possible for this important cause,” said Gary Olsen, Director Entertainment, Great Canadian Gaming Corporation.
