At the event, the casino will kick off its Toys for Tots collection and launch their 3rd Annual Holiday Coat Drive, in partnership with New York Cares.
This year, the Resorts World Casino Christmas tree is a soaring 40 feet tall, making it the largest Christmas tree on display in the borough of Queens. The tree will be decorated with more than 1,500 ornaments, including holiday bells, balls and poinsettias and 400 bows made from 5,400 yards of red velvet and gold lame ribbon. There are 6,500 LED lights on the Resorts World tree.
The two-hour event will features classic Christmas and holiday songs sung by local carolers, refreshments and a visit from Santa Claus to help light the tree.
For the third year in a row, Resorts World Casino New York City is excited to be a drop-off site for the New York Cares Coat Drive, an annual city wide event focused on collecting and distributing coats to New Yorkers in need. Anyone who is interested can drop off their clean, gently-used coats at the designated collection bins inside the main entrance of the casino.
