At a ceremony on March 8th at The Venetian® Macao, Andy Kobel, Sands China’s senior vice president of table games and gaming optimization, and Michael Lee, the company’s vice president of concession administration and casino compliance, presented ceremonial donation cheques to representatives of this year’s five beneficiaries: the Young Men’s Christian Association of Macau, the Sheng Kung Hui Macau Social Services Coordination Office, the Macao Gaming Industry Employees Home, the Youth Volunteers Association of Macao, and Bosco Youth Service Network.

Sands China’s donations help support various responsible gaming efforts of the NGOs, including parent-child responsible gaming and financial management activities, roadshows, workshops, trainings, sharing sessions, responsible gaming promotional videos and quiz games, and more.

Dr. Wilfred Wong, president of Sands China Ltd., said: “Sands China is pleased to continue our annual donations to Macao NGOs doing important responsible gaming work in the community. We are grateful for our collaborations over the years, and look forward to continuing our joint efforts to raise awareness and understanding of responsible gaming in Macao.”
