DAVENPORT, IOWA (October 20, 2022) — We are proud to continue our partnership with Leukemia and Lymphoma Society through our “Donate and Play” promotional campaign. In September, our guests raised $31,200 to help the Leukemia and Lymphoma in their fight to cure cancer! Our total raised for the year is now over $60,000 to the Leukemia & Lymphoma. 

Since the inception of “Donate and Play”, Rhythm City and its guests have raised over $500,000 for Quad Cities organizations like Make a Wish Foundation, March of Dimes, American Heart Association, and Riverbend Foodbank, among others.

“It’s a great way for our guests to support a great mission and for Rhythm City to reward our guests,” said Mo Hyder, Rhythm City Casino and Resort General Manager and Regional VP. “The ‘Donate and Play Campaign’ puts our company values into action and benefits a great cause.”

The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is at the forefront of the fight to cure cancer. Compared to other blood cancer non-profits, LLS is the largest funder of cutting-edge research to advance cures, having invested nearly $1.3 billion in research. Rhythm City is committed to aiding great causes like LLS through donations and support.
