To celebrate the spirit of the holidays, employees from Credit One Bank volunteered at the U.S.VETS – Las Vegas’ holiday party. They served a three course meal prepared by Binion’s Gambling Hall to current and alumni veterans along with veteran family members. Besides dinner, the party featured photos with Santa and a holiday crafts station for kids and families.
