Congratulations to Emerald’s Readathon winners!

Want to know one habit that ultra-successful people have in common? They read. A lot! With this in mind, Emerald Resort & Casino recently hosted an annual school Readathon to give back to the community.

“To assist schools and encourage reading in the local Sedibeng area, the Readathon challenge is aimed at schools from the Vaal District West and East who are selected to participate in the competition,” says Tanuja Gangabishun, Marketing Executive at Emerald Resort & Casino.

During the month of May, schools were selected to participate in the Readathon according to categories: Foundation phase: Grade 1-3, Intermediate phase: Grade 4-6, Senior phase: Grade 7-9 and FET Phase: Grade 10-12. The top four schools were selected from each phase, with the winners each claiming R10 000 for their school to go towards refurbishment or the purchase of school equipment.

Congratulations to the following winners – in the Foundation Phase: Roshnee Primary School

Intermediate: Batloung Primary School, Senior Phase: Dr Molefi Oliphant Secondary School and FET Phase: Mohlodi Secondary.

“We were privileged to hear motivational speaker, Dr Eva Seoke, born and bred in the Vaal and matriculated from Riverside High School, speak to us and the kids on the day,” said Tanuja. Eva achieved her Bachelors of Medicine and Surgery at the University of Witwatersrand and is currently working in the department of General Surgery at Sebokeng Hospital.

“The underlying theme is that if people want to be educated, successful and have a brighter future, their reading skills need to be learnt early in life,” comments Tanuja.

“Many of our local schools require financial assistance and we will have discussions with the principals of the winning schools to determine their most pressing needs and assist with these,” concludes Tanuja. “We enthusiastically support our local community and look forward to creating a brighter and more successful future for the kids and long-term assistance for these institutions that teach the future of our country.”

Emerald Resort & Casino excited to join the Peermont family

Recently announced, Emerald Resort & Casino has been purchased from Caesars Entertainment by Peermont Hotels, Casinos and Resort a dominant hotel player in southern Africa.

“Its exciting news that’s extremely positive for Emerald Resort and Casino – team members and guests,” explains Mark Hands, Resort Director at Emerald Resort & Casino. “What it means for our guests is more options, more rewards and more benefits by being part of a leading gaming and hospitality group in South Africa and Botswana.”

“While Emerald Resort & Casino is a unique property, it receives limited benefit from the Caesars’ Rewards network effect given its remoteness to other properties in our network,” said Tony Rodio, CEO of Caesars Entertainment. “We’re pleased to monetize this non-core asset in our portfolio, which will enable Caesars to sharpen its focus on other strategic markets.”

Peermont considers the acquisition of Emerald Resort to be mutually beneficial as it presents great opportunities for growth and development. An additional benefit of the acquisition is that Emerald Resort will be able to offer a wider range of rewards through Peermont’s Winners Circle loyalty programme.

Caesars Entertainment will continue to operate the property until the transaction closes, which is expected to be in the third quarter of 2019, subject to regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions.
