EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill., May 1, 2014. . . Remote Area Medical Volunteer Corps (RAM) will be providing a dental, vision and medical clinic in East St. Louis this Friday, May 2 through Sunday, May 4, and the Casino Queen will be helping to make sure the participating volunteers are rested and fed during their visit.
The event provides a wonderful opportunity for those in the community to get medical attention they may not be able to afford otherwise, but it is dependent upon the many volunteers who give so generously of their time to provide that care. In recognition of the service and to support the effort, Casino Queen will be providing RAM with 20 rooms at the Casino Queen Hotel at no charge, along with lunch on May 2 for the 250 volunteers.
“The services that the Remote Area Medical Volunteer Corps provide is something that our community benefits from and we want to be able to help that cause,” said Jeff Watson, President and General Manager of the Casino Queen. “Being able to provide a place for some of these volunteers to stay while assisting those in East St. Louis and providing lunch for them is just a small way for Casino Queen to thank them for the great work they are doing in our community”
