Emerald makes wishes come true!

The festive season for most people, is a time of happiness, fun, holidays and family. To make it a truly festive season for those less fortunate, Emerald Resort & Casino is helping to change lives and make a few wishes come true.

“Most recently, weassisted the Sebokeng community in celebrating the birthday of a 128 year oldlocal resident which in itself was such a rewarding project.  We are alsopurchasing Christmas gifts for over 120 disadvantaged children in the VaalTriangle and will be handing these gifts out on 7 December,” says EmeraldResort & Casino’s Marketing Executive Tanuja Gangabishun.

On 30 November, 128Emerald Resort & Casino team members and visitors to the Resort lined up togive Mr Mahlong, who had recently turned an impressive 128 years old, a roseeach, and what would a birthday be without cake and a party? Providing these,the Resort celebrated with his wife, friends and family while they enjoyed abuffet lunch and a beautiful chocolate cake dedicated to Mr Mahlong.

He provided the team with some words of wisdom: “for longevity: don’t drink alcohol or smoke, be happily married, love God and your parents.” Mr Mahlong has had seven children during his long life but isn’t sure how many grandchildren he has – but it’s quite a lot.

To aid with the expensive outlay of school uniforms and to spread Christmas cheer, Emerald Resort & Casino extended invites to Childline Sunlight Safe House for Children, Matwala Children’s Home, Emfuleni Shelter for Boys, Bophelong Children’s Home, Relebohile Children’s Home and Unity Children’s Home where 124 children will receive gifts, an additional 28 children will receive gifts sponsored by the Vereeniging Lion’s Club and 96 children will receive school uniforms packaged in new school bags.

Emerald knows that kids will be kids and are providing the children an opportunity to spend the day swimming, playing on jumping castles and having their faces painted. The kids are also in for a surprise because Father Christmas will be on hand to provide the gifts of school uniforms and toys.

‘’We don’t only aim to create memorable experiences for this wonderful community, but want to see that they succeed no matter their circumstances. By providing school uniforms for next year we hope that a small concern has been eased, and sharing in such a momentous birthday is something that brought joy to the community and our team mates, but it’s one that I won’t soon forget,” comments Tanuja.

“For us there’s no better way to celebrate Christmas and we look forward to changing even more lives in the future.”

Emerald Resort & Casino’s Resort Director Mark Hands concludes, “I applaud all of our Emerald team members on their giving hearts and generosity. Throughout the year we have run numerous CSI projects, mostly where we can make a difference in our local community and where we can be a part of their key milestones and #TeamEmerald always comes to the party.

From all of us at Emerald Resort & Casino, we would like to take this opportunity to wish our entire community a Merry Christmas and a fantastic 2019!”
