Twin River Casino’s annual “Christmas in June” campaign benefited many community causes. The efforts were led by Twin River’s General Manager of Beverage Operations Frank Martucci, as well as other Twin River employees and hospitality industry members.

The campaign included collecting bins of food to donate to the RI Community Food Bank, donating the charitable funds raised from Campari’s Negroni Week at Twin River’s Lighthouse Bar and fixing up bicycles in support of Project Broken Wheel to donate to community organizations, such as Amos House and Adoption Rhode Island. The New Belgium Brewing Company donated 12 bicycles and Tito’s Handmade Vodka donated $2,000 to Project Broken Wheel.

Also, Twin River Casino donated $1,000 and 604 pounds of food to the RI Community Food Bank. A portion of those proceeds came from Campari USA during Campari Negroni Week sales at Lighthouse Bar in Twin River Casino. Tito’s Handmade Vodka donated an additional $3,000 to the RI Community Food Bank.
