Eldorado, Silver Legacy, Circus Circus Reno and community join together to provide Thanksgiving meals

RENO, NV (Nov. 15, 2017) – On Tuesday, Nov. 21 between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., the Eldorado Resort Casino, Silver Legacy Resort Casino and Circus Circus Reno will demonstrate the true spirit of the holiday season by serving a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with all the fixings to approximately 1,000 people in need. A yearly tradition for the Silver Legacy, the 19th annual Jeffrey Olson Memorial Thanksgiving Feed will be held at the corner of 6th and Center Street in Downtown Reno. Together with members of Vocational Opportunities for Inclusive Career Education (VOICE), who provide vocational transition training for individuals with disabilities ages 18-22 and the Washoe County School District Police Explorers, the Downtown Reno properties will truly be making a difference in many people’s lives this Turkey Day.  

“This tradition is important to the Eldorado Resorts Reno properties because it allows us to give back to the community that gives so much to us,” said Cindy Carano, Executive Director of Community Relations for the Silver Legacy, Eldorado and Circus Circus Reno. “Our team members graciously volunteer their time to ensure others have an enjoyable holiday with a hot, delicious meal and in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I am truly thankful for their generosity and kind hearts.”

This year’s delicious dinner prepared by the culinary teams at the three properties will include oven-roasted turkey, honey mustard glazed ham, creamy mashed potatoes, apple sage dressing, candied yams, green beans, pumpkin pie, cookies, warm apple cider and more.  

The three properties will also be donating unclaimed lost and found items to those in need such as warm jackets.  

Instrumental in the development of the event was Jeffrey Olson, Silver Legacy’s former banquet manager who first brought the idea to the company 19 years ago. The annual event is now a memorial to Olson and his giving spirit and the Eldorado, Silver Legacy and Circus Circus Reno are honored to play a part in assisting those in our community that are less fortunate.
