Caesars Entertainment, in support of climate change, will go dark with its Atlantic City and Philadelphia casinos during the 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. hour on Saturday, March 29. This will include Caesars, Harrah’s Resort, Bally’s, Showboat and Harrah’s Philadelphia.

Guests and employee will be encouraged to turn off all non-essential interior lighting. The exterior lighting and marquees at all properties will also be shut off for the hour.

Earth Hour is sponsored by the World Wildlife Fund. It has grown to involve hundreds of millions of people across 7,000 cities and 154 countries in a collective statement of concern about climate change. This is the sixth consecutive year Caesars Entertainment has gone dark in support of Earth Hour.

Earth Hour is just one of many ways that we participate in activities that improve the lives of our employees, guests and our community," said Gwen Migita, Vice President Sustainability & Community Engagement for Caesars Entertainment. “We are also encouraging employees and guests to keep the spirit of Earth Hour alive by making a habit of turning off unnecessary lights and personal equipment when it is not in use, both at work, or at home.”

Earth Hour is a part of Caesars Entertainment's larger sustainability strategy, Code Green, and serves as a visual representation of Caesars’ commitment to sustainable practices and environmental stewardship. Every year, Caesars Entertainment and its nearly 70,000 employees engage in environmental programs and sustainable business practices that provide tangible, low-carbon solutions to reduce water, energy and waste consumption at all resorts and casinos.

Once again, Earth Hour is 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 29. Join Caesars, Bally’s, Showboat, Harrah’s Resort and Harrah’s Philadelphia by going dark for one hour to show your support.
