Type of Activity
At Harrah’s Northern California, we strive to go above and beyond to help our guests, team members and community. Harrah’s Nor Cal is proud to offer support in the form of volunteer time, as well as cash and in-kind donations to support positive change in the people and communities of Amador County and Northern California.
Some of our most recent community efforts include:
October - December 2020
In an effort to help local businesses address the national coin shortage, Harrah’s Northern California is offering guests a way to put their loose change to good use. When a player redeems their winnings at Harrah’s Northern California, the redemption kiosk will print coin change in the form of a slot ticket. Guests can redeem their change at the Cashier or choose to donate their ticket by dropping it into the newly installed donation boxes located throughout the casino to benefit Sierra Wind Wellness and Recovery Center, a local community center that offers peer perspective on mental health in Amador County.
Through an employee-hosted sale, team members at Harrah’s Northern California raised more $7,776 for Amador STARS Cancer Support Organization, an Amador County nonprofit that provides cancer support services for local cancer patients and their families, including complimentary transportation for out-of-town radiation and chemotherapy treatments. Recently named 2020 California Nonprofit of the Year by Assembly Member Frank Bigelow, Amador STARS also connects newly-diagnosed individuals with resources, organizes support groups and provides wigs to patients going through chemotherapy. Harrah’s Northern California selected Amador STARS not only to honor cancer awareness month, but also recognize the increased hardship cancer patients have endured this year.
Harrah’s Northern donated $25,000 to the American Red Cross to support their efforts with the California wildfires in August. The Buena Vista Rancheria Fire Department also supported the efforts of local fire crews in containing the wildfires from spreading through Amador County.
