Adelaide Casino continues to support the Flinders Medical Centre Foundation (FMCF), raising funds through FMCF Bingo hosted by Adelaide Casino. We help raise funds for disadvantaged and sick children in South Australia each year by participating in the Variety Bash run by Variety, the Children’s Charity. We also raised funds for OzHarvest, assisted the Red Cross with disaster relief appeals through staff pay deductions and we regularly donate unclaimed lost property items to the Salvation Army.
