Living their commitment to respect, courage, integrity and passion, Aristocrat employees united the company’s offices around the globe to raise nearly $34,000 for Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada.
Aristocrat Las Vegas-based employees gathered on Tuesday, May 31 to present a check to Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada. Joining the event was Mitchell, a local Make-A-Wish Kid. Funds raised by the company will go toward wish fulfillment for many Wish Kids, including wishes like Mitchell’s to go to Australia with his family.
The money was raised through a combination of efforts at Aristocrat, including the annual “Fast for February Initiative,” where employees gave up a favorite food or activity over a 30-day period and donated the money saved to Make-A-Wish and the Make-A-Wish Walk For Wishes.
“When a company empowers their employees to give back to the community, amazing things happen,” said Caroline Ciocca, President and CEO, Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada. “We feel fortunate to be the organization that has inspired thousands of Aristocrat Technologies employees around the globe. Feb Fast is a fun, creative and very healthy way to raise money. Our partnership with Aristocrat has grown over the past three years – I can’t wait to see what they do next year!”
Matt Wilson, Aristocrat Senior Vice President of Global Gaming Operations, is an internal champion of Make-A-Wish. “Our culture promotes being passionate in everything we do, including caring for others,” Wilson said. “Our employees gave unselfishly with monetary contributions and their commitment resulted in this donation, the largest yet from Aristocrat to Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada.”
Aristocrat is active in the Las Vegas community, donating an average of $100,000 to local charities each year.
