Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort won $10,000 from the Caesars Foundation to be donated to the local American Cancer Society – Making Strides Walk based on the property’s efforts to bring breast cancer awareness to its employees.

The Caesars Foundation breast cancer awareness contest was a competition among all North American Caesars casinos to identify the property that had the most employee participation in breast cancer awareness events during October. Along with recognizing the month of October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Harrah’s Cherokee hosted an entire Pink Week entitled ‘Treasure Your Chest’ to educate employees and guests about breast cancer. Contest points were awarded in several different categories including employee participation in a Beautiful Bra Pageant, volunteer opportunities, and media exposure. After the final tally, Harrah’s Cherokee reigned supreme over 47 Caesars properties.

“Here at Harrah’s Cherokee, we encourage wellness among our employees and guests because it’s the right thing to do,” Darlene Ousley, Harrah’s Cherokee wellness coach, said. “Our wellness goal is always to find that one person who needed to be reached and didn’t even know it. Whether it’s breast cancer, heart disease, or diabetes – we are always reaching out for that one.”
