Led by its CEO, Jonathan Jossel, the Plaza Hotel & Casino will commemorate October as Breast Cancer Awareness month with special offers at Oscar’s and in its bingo room, the only one in downtown Las Vegas, all to benefit the American Cancer Society (ACS).
Supporting breast cancer research is personal for Jossel, whose mother is a breast cancer survivor of more than 15 years. Jossel is one of 25 local leaders raising money for the ACS Real Men Wear Pink campaign to support ACS’ mission and save lives from breast cancer through early detection and prevention, innovative breast cancer research, and patient support.
“I have known too many people affected by cancer, including friends, coworkers and even my own mother. That is why raising awareness for breast cancer research, patient support services, and prevention programs is so important to me,” said Jossel. “I am proud to be part of the American Cancer Society’s Real Men Wear Pink campaign and to create fun offers in Oscar’s and the bingo room in October that will raise additional awareness and funds to directly benefit the mission of ACS.”
Oscar’s, an award-wining vintage Vegas steakhouse inside the Plaza’s iconic glass dome, will donate $3 to ACS for every cosmopolitan cocktail purchased in the lounge or dining room during the month of October. Oscar’s is currently open Thursday through Sunday, 5 to 10 p.m. and offers happy hour from 5 to 7 p.m.
The Plaza’s bingo room, which has six daily bingo sessions, will sell commemorative pink capped daubers featuring various cancer awareness ribbons for $5 with 100 percent of the proceeds donated to ACS.
