Tampa, FL, Friday, June 3, 2016…The American Red Cross has been selected by the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa announced to be their designated charity for the month of June. Benefit events, community volunteerism and merchandise sales will occur throughout the month.
“We are delighted to partner with the Seminole Hard Rock Tampa,” said Linda Jorge Carbone, CEO of the Central Florida Region of the American Red Cross. “The funds raised by the staff during this month-long effort will help families who have been affected by a disaster as well as help us spread the message about the importance of being prepared in our community. We’re especially grateful that team members from Seminole Hard Rock Tampa will be helping us install free smoke alarms in vulnerable neighborhoods as part of our Home Fire Campaign. We are so grateful for Seminole Hard Rock Tampa’s long standing partnership and support.”
On June 18, teams of Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa employees will join Red Cross volunteers and the Hillsborough Fire Department in canvassing a high risk Tampa neighborhood installing free smoke alarms, educating residents on fire safety and how to escape their home should there be a fire.
The Seminole Hard Rock Tampa will be holding a benefit event for Red Cross on June 25. Open to the public, the event will feature a charity slot tournament as well as a benefit concert and check presentation of funds raised for the month.
The slot tournament has an entry fee of $10 and 50 percent of those proceeds will be donated to the charity and 50 percent to the prize pool. Tickets can be purchased at the Rock Shop or upon entry of the event.
In connection to Red Cross, the property will be selling customized limited edition earbuds in its retail shops for $10 with 100 percent of the proceeds generated going to the organization.
