Atlantic City casinos are holding new events and promotions for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

US.- The Casino Association of New Jersey (CANJ) is joining Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October with events and activities to raise funds to support research and prevention efforts.

Mark Giannantonio, recently appointed president of the CANJ, said: “It always makes me proud to see our city come together, united toward a common cause. Unfortunately, so many of us have been affected by cancer, whether through our own diagnosis or that of a loved one.

“This cause is personal for so many of us and Atlantic City casinos are honoured to join forces once again with local and national cancer prevention organisations to raise awareness and funding for breast cancer research and screening.”

Activities include Bally’s Atlantic City’s second annual “Pink Your Drink” campaign, with pink speciality cocktails and desserts and a percentage of the earnings going to breast cancer research. Borgata Hotel and Casino Atlantic City will be participating in the awareness campaign by illuminating the 32nd floor of The Water Club in pink.

Caesars Entertainment’s Atlantic City Resorts, Tropicana, Caesars, and Harrah’s Resort, will also “go pink” with pink lights on each property’s exterior. Golden Nugget, Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Ocean Resort Casino and Resorts Casino Hotel will be participating in with events and, again, pink beverages.
