At Isle of Capri Casinos®, we believe in being good neighbors. This means, in addition to donating funds and support services to community groups, we also encourage our employees to be actively involved in the communities in which we operate. Our company founder, the late Bernard Goldstein, felt so strongly about community spirit that we launched Community Aces, our charitable giving and volunteer program honoring his legacy.
We are committed to making a difference in our community through a variety of ways including financial and in-kind donations, as well as volunteer hours.
