Cares package — Ocean Casino Resort has donated $12,000 to four of its 2020 Ocean Cares-sponsored organizations. Representatives from The Alcove Center for Grieving Children and Families, The Humane Society of Atlantic County, and The Marine Mammal Stranding Center all were on hand to receive a $3,000 check from Ocean CEO Terry Glebocki. The Ronald McDonald House also received a check but could not attend the presentation. The donation was made possible by the thoughtfulness of Ocean’s guests, who deposited their coin receipts into charity boxes posted around the casino floor. Those receipts of small change grew into thousands of dollars.
Best if used by — Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, part of MGM Resorts International’s M life Rewards player loyalty program, is extending the expiration dates for Points and Express Comps until March 31. In addition, MGM will continue to evaluate this policy over the coming months. According to an email from CEO and President Bill Hornbuckle, “We recognize that current events make it difficult, if not impossible, for so many to travel and we don’t want you to have ongoing concerns around your ability to enjoy rewards you have earned over time.”
