Diaper Collection
Ameristar Casino Hotel collected more than 2,100 diapers to the United Way of West Central Mississippi. Team members donated the must-have baby items to benefit families across Warren County.
March Of The Mayors
At least two Biloxi resorts partnered with the city of Biloxi for the March of the Mayors food drive. Each of the 50 participating cities in Mississippi was assigned a food item to collect, and one-pound bags of beans was the requested item for Biloxi. Hard Rock employees teamed up with the mayor, donating bags of beans to help feed the hungry within the community. (Right) Hard Rock Food and Beverage Director Josh Necaise presented the donation to Kay Miller, Biloxi Main Street executive director. At
Treasure Bay, in addition to donating beans, employees could also make a cash donation that was matched dollar-for-dollar by the Treasure Bay Charitable Committee to purchase more beans. (Left) Treasure Bay’s Shane Seymour, Mitchell Lywiski and Michelle Necaise are shown with their donations.
