BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Harrah's Gulf Coast presented a $24,623 check to the United Way of South Mississippi on Tuesday.
The contributions to help further the organization's mission were raised by Harrah's Gulf Coast team members through various fundraising activities. These activities included a kickball tournament, shirt sales, an employee golf tournament and payroll deductions.
Harrah's Gulf Coast representatives said they also feel passionate about United Way of South Mississippi's mission to build resources and collaborate with members of the community to better the lives of individuals living in South Mississippi.
