Hollywood Casino Baton Rouge announced today they will hold the Play for a
Cause promotion this October benefitting the Woman’s Hospital Foundation
breast cancer outreach and education programs including the Mobile Mammography
Coach. Hollywood Casino Baton Rouge is proud to participate in National Breast
Cancer Awareness Month. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States
will get breast cancer at some point during her life. After skin cancer,
breast cancer is the most common kind of cancer in women.  The good news is
that many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early.

Month, Hollywood Casino will have a dedicated Pink Ribbon Blackjack table from
which 5% of the winnings will be donated to support Woman’s Hospital
Foundation with a minimum donation of $1,000 and a maximum of $5,000. Dealers
on the casino floor will be wearing pink promotion t-shirts and other
employees will wear pink ribbons in honor of this cause. Along with the Pink
Ribbon Blackjack table, Hollywood Casino will be hosting the Woman’s Hospital
Mobile Mammography Coach on Monday, October 14 from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. The
Woman’s Mobile Coach provides convenience to women in the Baton Rouge area

accessible than ever before. Anyone who would like to take advantage of the
convenience will need to present their insurance card and a doctor’s order for

Hollywood Casino General Manager Jim Rigot said, “Helping out our local
community and being a good community partner is something Hollywood Casino is
committed to. By donating to the Woman’s Hospital Foundation, our donation
will stay local and directly impact the Baton Rouge community. Turning one of
our blackjack tables pink for the month is just a fun and unique way that we
can support the cause.”
