Happy moments for cancer patients

Casinos Austria makes it possible for people suffering from cancer to take a little time out with many happy moments.

Ever since Casinos Austria was founded, it has been a matter of course for the company to be committed above all to humanitarian and social causes in and for Austria. This commitment also resulted in a long-standing partnership with the Austrian Cancer Aid, spanning a variety of campaigns and support for the “Pink Ribbon” and “Loose Tie” initiatives.

In 2023, Casinos Austria is expanding its commitment to the Austrian Cancer Aid with the “Glückliche Augenblicke” (“Happy Moments”) initiative. The idea behind it is that if you want to heal the body, you also have to do something good for the soul. A free ticket contingent is made available for cancer patients thanks to Casinos Austria’s cooperation and sponsorship partnerships with a wide range of institutions. These include the Burgtheater, the Bregenz Festival, the Vereinigte Bühnen Wien and the Beach Volleyball European Championships on Vienna’s Donauinsel in early August of 2023.

Erwin van Lambaart, General Director of Casinos Austria: “A cancer diagnosis is always devastating. Apart from the physical challenges, the mental strain is immense. With this campaign, we want to give those affected by cancer a little time out featuring some happy moments so that they can, at least for a while, forget their worries and recharge their batteries.”

“Cancer takes a lot of strength. It’s very often difficult for those affected to switch off and not let their thoughts be constantly occupied by the disease,” says Monika Hartl, a spokesperson for cancer support counsellors. “That’s why it’s all the more gratifying that Casinos Austria offers those affected an opportunity to experience a wonderful time away from it all with the “Happy Moments” initiative. Especially during stressful phases in life, it’s immensely helpful to feel a sense of lightness through joyful moments and be able to gain strength, hope and confidence.”

The tickets are offered by the Austrian Cancer Aid to cancer patients who are already receiving care, especially those who have experienced financial hardship as a result of their illness.

Since 1968, it has been a part of Casinos Austria’s inner conviction to be active in Austria and for Austria, and to support institutions, initiatives and projects that benefit people. Enabling, promoting and supporting socio-politically relevant concerns and initiatives is one of the company’s declared goals. The Casinos Austria world offers all adults exciting entertainment, serious gaming with player protection at the highest international level in a distinctive ambience. With their offerings, our twelve Austrian casinos are leading tourist enterprises and bring added value to many regions and thus contribute to value creation to an extent that goes far beyond their own turnover.
