Casino charity challenge fixes up facility


Community members from several areas joined forces May 18 to help clean, paint and and landscape a Sierra Recovery Center facility. Employees from Harrah’s and Harveys Lake Tahoe casinos and Lost Art Painting joined with board of director members and other SRC volunteers during the project.

“It’s hard to express how important this kind of volunteer effort is for us,” said Lyle Dornon, Sierra Recovery Center deputy director. “The work done here will benefit us for years to come as we strive to mend lives. We are so grateful to everyone for all their hard work. This effort is awesome.”

The volunteers painted the building, installed railroad ties as planters and weeded and landscaped the facility grounds.

Paint for the project was supplied by Dick’s Fuller O’Brien Paint, paint labor was donated by Lost Art Painting, landscaping materials were supplied by Harrah’s and Rob Gonzales of Smart and Final donated hamburgers and hot dogs for the barbecue.

Once the project was complete the volunteers were treated to a barbecue lunch provided by Smart and Final and cooked by SRC members.

Harrah’s and Harveys participation was part of the American Gaming Association 2002 Casino Charity Challenge.
