Silverton Casino Hotel Uses Power of Social Media to Support Opportunity Village

Silverton Casino Hotel left the power of charity in the hands of the Las Vegas community to raise money for Opportunity Village. By clicking “like” on the resort’s Facebook page, Silverton Casino Hotel committed a donation of one dollar for every click and is proud to donate a check of $1,000 to “Las Vegas’ Favorite Charity.”

Las Vegas resident and headliner Penn Jillette, who supported Opportunity Village on NBC’s “The Celebrity Apprentice,” also sent out a “tweet” calling attention to Silverton’s campaign which helped propel the message, a true testament to the power of social media.

Silverton Casino Hotel has long supported the charity and the phenomenal work they do for the Las Vegas valley. Opportunity Village has made custom buttons for employees to wear during their shifts to promote monthly offers for guests. The organization regularly collects documents from the executive offices for the document destruction service, and Silverton Casino Hotel is thrilled to begin selling Opportunity Village’s custom made scarves in the new gift and boutique shop, Guilt, which opens in July. The scarves, which are hand painted as part of the fine arts programs at Opportunity Village are one of a kind.

Craig Cavileer, President of Silverton Casino Hotel, said, “Silverton Casino Hotel is happy to show our support and look forward to exploring more new and creative ways to do so in the future.”
