Over a decade ago, Caesars Foundation first partnered with Second Wind Dreams, an internationally known non-profit. Together, the two have granted funding support as well as employee volunteer efforts to turn the dreams of long-term care residents into a reality. Since 2009, countless elders’ lives have been enhanced through this generous effort.

Last month, Caesars AC and Second Wind Dreams made yet another dream come true. Greg Miller, a resident of Vineland’s NJ Veterans Home, served in the United States Navy as a post office clerk on the carrier. Greg was honorably discharged as a 3rd Class Petty Officer and following his time in the military, developed a passion for baking and culinary. Recently, the vet boasted about his very own version of a tiramisu dessert, voicing that he would love the chance to make it with the help of Martorano’s renowned chef, Dianna Miller.

On August 29th, Greg teamed up with Chef Dianna to recreate this popular, delightful dish over at Harrah’s. Additionally, he was surprised and honored with a personalized chef jacket and a Gold Spatula award. Guest presentations were given by members of our resort, the local American Legion, State of New Jersey Veterans Service Council, and Atlantic County Veterans Services Organization.

Currently serving Atlantic City, New Orleans and Las Vegas, Caesars Entertainment’s employee-based volunteers, known as HEROs, not only participate in elders’ dream fulfillment but special events, including a holiday gift program for nursing home residents with little or no family.
