A Good Act of Generosity
In Hammond, the Horseshoe Casino which is located approximately twenty minutes from Chicago serves as a gaming and entertainment institution. It is also famous for its exquisite restaurants, chic bars and cozy lounges. It prided itself as home of the highest limit. It has over 350,000 square feet of gaming space and presently has over 3,000 slot machines and 100 gaming tables. Customers love the regular poker tournaments which includes World Series of Poker. The Horseshoe Casino also has an entertainment space called The Venue which can function as an area for hosting events.
On the other hand, the TradeWinds institution is a non-profit organization that serves as home to 400 children with different disabilities. They provide services to children who need developmental, physical, behavioral and healthcare needs. They also offer Speech and Occupational Therapy services aside from summer camps. In addition, TradeWinds also cater to adults’ special need with services such as adult day program, prevocational training, and employment opportunities.
Recently, while most customers of Horseshoe Casino is thinking hard of tagging along with them tractors and trailer trucks to put on their winnings, the good people from TradeWinds have become lucky recipient of a tractor in very good used condition donated by Horseshoe Casino.
The tractor was presented by Horseshoe Casino’s Director of Finance Steve Cox and Regional Vice President of Human Resources Dawn Reynolds-Pettit. Steve Cox is also a Board Member of TradeWinds.
Reynolds-Pettit statement as they presented the tractor was “We are honored to present the John Deere tractor and trailer to TradeWinds. We hope this gift serves them well and helps with the maintenance of their facility.
A TradeWind’s staff, in response, said “We are very appreciative of Horseshoe’s lawn tractor donation to TradeWinds. It is a really nice and helpful piece of equipment that will be used to maintain the lawn at the main facility in Hobart.
This move of a profitable gaming institution extending help to a non-profitable organization is an amazing act of restoring faith in humanity.
Being a tractor enthusiast, I personally admire the idea of Horseshoe Casino donating a brilliant piece of equipment to TradesWind. Surely, TradesWind will get a lot of benefits from having a tractor for their main facility upkeep and preservation.
Great job Horseshoe Casino!
