Harrah’s Metropolis and Fat Edd’s Roadhouse recently awarded Massac County United Way with a check for $13,434.92.
Throughout 2016, collaborative efforts took place between Harrah’s Metropolis, employee of Harrah’s Metropolis and Fat Edd’s Roadhouse to benefit this local charitable organization.
The donation comes in the form of payroll deductions, Jeans Day donations, donated goods and a contribution by Harrah’s Metropolis.
Fat Edd’s contributed a portion of collected receipts as well.
“The Massac County United Way is a charity that benefits many different non-profit charities and organizations each year in Massac County. The board consists of volunteers, which also allows for all donations to go directly to the receiving agencies. As part of the Caesar’s Code of Commitment, we are required to give back to our community. Working alongside the Massac County United Way we are able to help so many different agencies,” said Chad Lewis, advertising and public relations supervisor with Harrah’s Metropolis.
Lewis also serves on the Massac County United Way board.
