El Cortez Hotel and Casino is spreading holiday spirit this year by hosting a gift drive in support of Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) of Greater Las Vegas from Monday, Nov. 28 through Friday, Dec. 16. “We had a great response during our holiday gift drive for Ronald McDonald House last year, and we wanted to show our support for them once again during this holiday season,” said El Cortez General Manager Mike Nolan. “The charitable organizations throughout Las Vegas are so important to our community, and everyone at El Cortez really jumps at the chance to help one of those organizations.” Donations will be accepted at El Cortez’s casino cage from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily during the gift drive, and all guests who donate a new, unopened gift valued at $5 or more will receive $10 in free play. Free play can only be redeemed once and will only be given to those who provide a receipt showing a value of greater than $5 when donating their new, unopened gift.
