Caesars’ ‘Enlisting Heroes’ Program Co-Sponsors Largest Veterans Day Parade West of the Mississippi and Offers Discounts for Active and Retired Service Members Year-Round

LAS VEGAS (Nov. 2, 2016) – Caesars Entertainment Corporation is renewing its commitment to support U.S. servicemen and women through a variety of programs, events and special offers. Caesars Entertainment has been a longtime supporter of veterans through its Enlisting Heroes employment program and other initiatives.

“We are grateful to those who serve our country and take great pride in the programs we have developed over the years to help support veterans,” said Mark P. Frissora, President and Chief Executive Officer of Caesars Entertainment. “Our initiatives to hire and train veterans have been extremely successful for our company, and we are proud to extend and celebrate these efforts again this year in recognition of Veterans Day.”

Caesars Enlisting Heroes was launched in 2013 and focuses on helping veterans find jobs across Caesars Entertainment. The program has hosted approximately 80 events geared specifically toward the veteran population and hired more than 2,000 veterans in the U.S. Caesars Entertainment has cemented meaningful relationships with community-based veteran groups, veterans’ homeless shelters, and the Nevada Department of Veteran Services, which designated Caesars Entertainment a “Green Zone Employer” in appreciation of its efforts to offer veterans stable employment opportunities in 2014.
