Hotels have a long and proud history of helping the community. The support given to charities, sporting clubs and community groups by hotels in SA is more than $9 million annually (figure obtained from McGregor Tan Marketing data).
This could be anything from a small donation or meal voucher for a school raffle to more significant fundraising initiatives for particular charities. It could also be the pub being the major sponsor of the local football team - local hotels play their part at all levels.
On behalf of hotels with gaming machines in SA, the AHA|SA coordinates the "Hotel Care Community Projects" programme. Since it was established in 1995, "Hotel Care" has poured more than $3 million back into the community. It has a particular focus on supporting charities and organisations that care for children and young people. Funding for Hotel Care Community Projects is provided by the Independent Gaming Corporation.
