On Tuesday, Nov. 26 between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., THE ROW will demonstrate the spirit of the holiday season by serving a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with all the fixings to approximately 1,000 people in need. A yearly tradition for the Eldorado, Circus Circus and Silver Legacy, the 21st annual Jeffrey Olson Memorial Thanksgiving Feed will be held at a new location this year, the Greater Nevada Field parking lot on Lake Street.
Together with members of Vocational Opportunities for Inclusive Career Education (VOICE), who provide vocational transition training for individuals with disabilities ages 18-22 and the Washoe County School District Police Explorers, THE ROW aims to make a difference in many people’s lives this Turkey Day.
“This tradition is important to THE ROW because it allows us to give back to the community that gives so much to us,” said Cindy Carano, executive director of community relations for THE ROW. “Our team members graciously volunteer their time to ensure others have an enjoyable holiday with a hot, delicious meal and in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I am personally thankful for their generosity and kind hearts.”
This year’s dinner prepared by THE ROW will include oven-roasted turkey, honey mustard glazed ham, creamy mashed potatoes, apple sage dressing, candied yams, green beans, pumpkin pie, cookies, warm apple cider and more.
Instrumental in the development of the event was Jeffrey Olson, Silver Legacy’s former banquet manager who first brought the idea to the company 21 years ago. The annual event is now a memorial to Olson and his giving spirit and THE ROW is honored to play a part in assisting those in the northern Nevada community that are less fortunate.
THE ROW would like to thank Brother Bill and all of the vendors who contribute to this community event including US Foods, Bonanza, Sysco, Franco, Model Dairy and more.
