Performers Help Raise $12,000 for Vegas Charities at MGM Resorts Softball Tournament

MGM Resort entertainers and employees joined forces for a great cause on Friday, November 19. Performers from Luxor’s FANTASY, MGM Grand’s Crazy Horse Paris, Excalibur’s Defending the Caveman and Vinny from New York-New-York kicked off a two-day companywide charity softball tournament, which raised $12,000 for the MGM Resorts Foundation. One-hundred percent of these funds will be donated back into the community. This year alone, MGM Resorts employees have raised more than $4.8 million for the MGM Resorts Foundation.

The kick-off event pitted the Corporate All-Stars against the New York-New York Yankees. The Corporate All-Stars rallied to win in a close 14-13 defeat. Scoring big for the All-Stars was chief marketing officer Bill Hornbuckle with six RBIs including a homerun.


Company performers each got into the spirit of the game in their own special way:

The MGM Resorts Foundation is the public foundation that collects and disburses employee donations to nonprofit charities and causes designated by its employees. Since its inception in 2002, MGM Resorts has disbursed more than $35 million in employee donations.
