The New Seabrook Park launches holiday initiative to benefit local families and students

10 December 2019

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The New Seabrook Park, located a short drive from Boston just over the Massachusetts border, is following a long tradition and giving back to the community this holiday season with a number of charitable initiatives.

On Dec. 6, Eureka Casino Resorts, a 100% employee-owned company that acquired Seabrook Park in January 2019, presented a check worth $29,000 to the Seabrook Scholarship Fund. The fund was created in 1988 and since that time Seabrook Park has contributed over $1 million to graduating seniors from Winnacunnet High School who are residents of the town and moving on to higher education.

“The town of Seabrook is deeply appreciative of the continuing contribution to the Scholarship Fund by Seabrook Park,” said Town Manager Bill Manzi. “The Scholarship Fund provides vital financial assistance to Seabrook students. Seabrook Park has been an outstanding corporate citizen, assisting the community in so many different ways, especially during this holiday season.”

The New Seabrook Park, which donates 35% of all casino revenue to local charities, kicked off the holiday season by donating and delivering 50 Thanksgiving meal baskets to families in need, in conjunction with Market Basket and the Seabrook Lions Club.

In addition, the Park has launched an “Adopt-a-Family” program in which it will shop for 20 Seabrook children and donate holiday gifts.

Also, in the coming weeks, Seabrook Park, working with Rockingham Community Action Partnership, will assemble 225 Holiday Backpacks filled with school supplies and deliver them to underprivileged children throughout Seabrook.

“Community service is a core value of our 100% employee owned family business and it’s good to be advancing our efforts here in New Hampshire,” said Seabrook Park Chief Operating Officer Andre Carrier. “In the past weeks, we came together as a family business to serve families over the holiday season. The holiday season should be filled with joy and it brings us great joy to serve the men, women, and children of the Seacoast. This is just the beginning and we will continue our service.”

Charitable endeavors are hallmarks of the Eureka and its employee-owners. Since building the Eureka Casino Resort in Mesquite, Nevada in the early 1990s, the company has consistently sought to provide value to the town as a member of the community.

In 2012, it formed the Eureka Community Initiative, which provides measurable and impactful deeds in its surrounding community, through education, citizenship, outreach and economic development. Through the dedicated efforts of Eureka employee-owners, over 50 programs and events have been completed for the Mesquite community.

After purchasing Seabrook Park earlier this year, Eureka began redevelopment of the 90,000-square-foot facility with the goal of reimagining the venue and transforming it back to the popular regional entertainment destination it was after opening nearly four decades ago.
