Harrah’s Cherokee donates to CarePartners Hospice

Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort continued its commitment to serving local communities by donating $2,500 to CarePartners Hospice. The donation will be used to sponsor the CarePartners Variety Show gala and the Holidays for Hospice program.

CarePartners Variety Show benefits CarePartners Hospice and CarePartners Rehabilitation Hospital. This year’s event was held recently at the Crowne Plaza Resort Exposition Center and features music from Oklahoma, Grease, South Pacific, The Lion King and more.

Holidays for Hospice is the largest annual fundraiser for CarePartners Hospice and includes memorial ornaments, gift wrapping, and a memorial garden at the Asheville Mall. Miniature trees are also delivered to patients of CarePartners Health Services.

“Harrah’s Cherokee supports local community organizations, and we have a special philanthropic focus on seniors in our area,” said Jo Blaylock, Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort’s vice president of Human Resources and External Relations. “We are delighted to be sponsoring CarePartners Hospice’s events once again because of the organization’s goal to provide hospice care to anyone who needs it.”

This marks the third year that Harrah’s Cherokee has contributed donations to CarePartners Hospice.
