HARD ROCK HOTEL AND CASINO SACRAMENTO AT FIRE MOUNTAIN ANNUAL PINKTOBER CAMPAIGN DURING MONTH OF OCTOBER
Hard Rock Honors the Month with Fundraising Events
Supporting Breast Cancer Awareness and Research
(Wheatland, Calif.) Oct. 5, 2022 – Hard Rock International continues its annual campaign for PINKTOBER® as the brand comes together to support breast cancer awareness and research with limited-edition merchandise, food and beverage menu items, and local events. Throughout the month of October, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sacramento at Fire Mountain will participate in the campaign through fundraising efforts supporting the Hard Rock Heals Foundation®, the charitable arm of Hard Rock®, with proceeds benefiting Adventist Health and Rideout Cancer Center in Marysville, CA. Last year, the property and the Enterprise Community Fund made a joint donation of $50,000 to Geweke’s Caring for Women Foundation which provides financial assistance to women in the Yuba-Sutter community who are battling female forms of cancer such as breast, ovarian, cervical, uterine or endometrial cancer. Hard Rock continues to live out its mottos of “Love All – Serve All” and “Take Time To Be Kind” with its steadfast support throughout Breast Cancer Awareness Month, with the goal of lending a hand to the people and communities that need it most.
“Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sacramento at Fire Mountain is committed to supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and we are honored this year to be partnering with Adventist Health and Rideout Cancer Center here in our region,” said Mark Birtha, President of Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sacramento. “It’s a privilege to bring our guests and community members together through our various PINKTOBER® fundraising events to deliver a unifying message of strength, hope and awareness for those affected by this disease.”
