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!”

We look forward to seeing this important occasion and opportunity for local business growing into an even bigger event next year.”“The conversation that we must have on both sides, namely with bigger corporates and SMME’s, is how we build real entrepreneurship and sustainable business in order to stimulate the economy around the Vaal Triangle area.

This will become an annual event and while we had a great turnout, we encourage even more entrepreneurs and local business within the Sedibeng District, Metsimaholo Municipality and Emfuleni District to participate at next year’s event,” concludes Hands.

Mandela Centenary continues at Emerald

This year, in celebration of the Mandela Centenary, Emerald Resort & Casino has created a series of CSI activities. During the latest, pensioners were invited to the Resort for a day out while team members listened to the wisdom that only age can bring.“To kick off our CSI initiatives for 2018, our Emerald team members started out knitting scarves for the underprivileged in our winter project and on Mandela Day, we hosted orphans for a day out at Animal World. This initiative has continued into the Spring months with the team hosting pensioners to experience the Resort,” says Emerald Resort & Casino’s Marketing Executive Tanuja Gangabishun.

As part of the celebrations, residents from Ikageng Old Age Relief Centre, Tshepiso Old Age Home, Evaton Old Age Disability Child And Family Welfare Society and Sebokeng Old Age Home were invited to Emerald Resort & Casino for breakfast and lunch while enjoying aerobics, rugby throw and music. “Team members were invited to come and join in the fun while we got learn a thing or two from our elders about life in general,” says Tanuja.Some spoke about the good old days, others enjoyed the outdoors by demonstrating how fit they still are with a bit of aerobics while others delighted in the climate controlled and warm waters of Aquadome.

Maybe Miriam Makeba said it best, “Age is getting to know all the ways the world turns, so that if you cannot turn the world the way you want, you can at least get out of the way so you won’t get run over.” Well, these pensioners certainly knew how to move as they celebrated with song and dance.

Emerald Resort & Casino’s Resort Director Mark Hands adds: “We loved hosting the older folk here at Emerald Resort & Casino, listening to their stories and the pearls of wisdom that they imparted. We have all chosen to make a difference in this world and in particular this wonderful Vaal community. This initiative has really been embraced by everyone at the Resort and we all look forward to the next one.”
