RIVERS CASINO COMMUNITY CHAMPIONS TAKE ON END OF SUMMER CLEANUP

Team Members partner with The Woodlands Foundation for Fall Festival preparation

PITTSBURGH Sept. 25, 2017 — The start of the fall season brings the Rivers Casino Community Champions together with The Woodlands Foundation. Both groups will join forces to prepare the grounds for the Woodlands Fall Festival.

The casino’s Community Champions will volunteer at The Woodlands on Friday, Sept. 29 to help clear the “Not-So-Scary” Haunted Trail, prepare game areas and clean up the 52-acre Wexford property ahead of the Woodlands Fall Festival and other programs throughout the season. The fall festival occurs on Saturday, Oct. 21 from 3-7 p.m. and includes zip lines, archery, an all-accessible hayride, trick-or-treating, live music and more.

“We couldn’t be more excited to support The Woodlands Foundation and help them prepare for the festival and this season’s guests,” said Rahmon Hart, director of community relations for Rivers Casino.

Dedicated to enriching the lives of children and adults with disability and chronic illness, The Woodlands Foundation is a nonprofit organization that provides its guests with meaningful experiences in a barrier-free environment. Nestled in the North Hills of Pittsburgh, The Woodlands Foundation’s site hosts individuals, camps and retreats, promoting social, cultural, environmental, recreational and spiritual growth through their enrichment programs.

“We are thankful to have support from volunteer groups like the Rivers Casino Community Champions, whose service continues to make our campus a beautiful and inviting place for our guests and their families,” said Denise B. Balkovec, director of development and communications at The Woodlands Foundation.

Each month, Rivers Casino Team Members volunteer their time to support local organizations throughout the region as part of the Rivers Casino Community Champions program. In August, Rivers’ Team Members volunteered their time and effort to support The Hill House Association and the Chauncey Steps project.
