ACE Casinos gives back locally

With the opening, ACE Casinos announced their giveback program would be active at the Ace Airport, Ace Casino Blackfoot and Cash Casino Red Deer.

An employee-led committee at each location will select the local communities and charities the program supports.

In September of 2022, Fairview Elementary School in Red Deer received a $10,000 donation from ACE Casino and Cash Casino. The school will use the money to assist refugees with living essentials like food, shelter, school supplies, and equipment.
