The Boys & Girls Club of Atlantic City will launch one of the most aggressive fundraising goals in its 45-year history with the announcement of a $2 million capital campaign to build a new Teen Center for Economic Development & College Readiness. The Club will be known as the MGM Resorts International Teen Center for Economic Youth Development & College Readiness thanks to a generous investment of $500,000 from MGM Resorts International, owner of Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
The new MGM Springfield is teaming up with Holyoke Community College and Springfield Technical Community College to help people launch a successful career as a table games or poker dealer. The Massachusetts Casino Career Training Institute’s (MCCTI) Gaming School prepare the local community for hiring opportunities at the soon-to-open MGM Springfield, which anticipates hiring over 450 table games dealers, representing nearly 1/3 of the workforce being hired to support the property operations.

If the exterior lights at Borgata looked a little dim last night, you weren’t imagining it. Borgata, along with all MGM Las Vegas resorts as well as MGM China, MGM National Harbor, Gold Strike Tunica, and Beau Rivage Resort, took part in Earth Hour 2017, a global event to raise awareness of climate change. All of the above-named resorts dimmed their lights from 8:30PM to 9:30PM local time to demonstrate the importance of energy conservation and to support action on climate change.
