Caesars Entertainment Celebrates Earth Day
April 07, 2011
In honor of Earth Day, Caesars Entertainment Atlantic City is proud to introduce
their 2011 "Go Green" Initiative featuring a variety of eco-friendly
modifications and promotions at Caesars, Harrah's Resort, Showboat and Bally's.
Starting this month, these efforts will range from organic food and beverage
specials to eco-friendly sweepstakes and promotions.
Throughout April, all four casinos and resorts will feature Go Green menu items
and drink specials at several eateries including buffets and gourmet
restaurants, integrating organically grown fruits, vegetables and meats. The
April Go Green initiative culminates with an April 30th Smart Car giveaway to
Total Rewards customers. The drawing will be held at all Caesars Entertainment
Atlantic City locations, as well as Harrah's Chester.
"We are very proud supporters of the Go Green initiative and are committed to
raising awareness of the importance of eco-friendly practices and fundraising
throughout our resorts and casinos," said Michelle Messina, Vice President of
Public Relations for Caesars Entertainment Atlantic City.
For those who prefer a more hands on approach to sustainable cuisine, the Viking
Cooking School at Harrah's Resort offers two exceptional classes for the
eco-minded foodie with "Farm-to-Table" seasonal cooking courses taking place on
April 13th and April 20th. Each class allows guests to create dishes such as a
Farm-Fresh Rustic Vegetable Tart, Market Salad with Applewood-Smoked Bacon and
Homemade Fruit-of-the-Season Ice Cream. This hands-on course will last for three
hours and is priced at $89.
Go Green initiatives will also be showcased in Caesars Entertainment's gaming
offerings. A Go Green Play & Earn Promotion, grants guests $10 in Free Slot Play
for every 250 Green Points (Base Reward Credits) earned. On Earth Day weekend,
guests will have the chance to participate in a "Win. Play. Grow. Sweepstakes"
where they can win their share of $50,000 in Free Slot Play. Guests will be
giving the chance to choose a leaf made from seeded paper, on which a dollar
amount will be printed. After claiming their prize, guests are encouraged to
keep the leaf to plant.
Caesars Entertainment will be giving back to local Green organizations such as
The Tenafly Nature Center and Highlands, New Jersey's Clean Ocean Action. Last
year's Go Green initiative resulted in a donation to the Pinelands Preservation
Alliance, another of this year's featured organizations.
In an additional effort in sustainability, eco-friendly features will be visible
throughout all four casinos and resorts, including biodegradable straws and
recyclable napkins and take-out containers.
