Having opened its local office in last December, Rush Street Japan is enhancing its community engagement in Tomakomai, where it hopes to be selected as the operator partner for a Hokkaido IR bid.
This past weekend, Rush Street sponsored a charity bingo game at the 53rd Tomakomai Skate Festival. “Money raised through the charity bingo game will be donated directly towards disaster relief efforts in response to the earthquake that struck the region in September last year,” a company statement said.
Chief Financial Officer Tim Drehkoff commented, “This is another great opportunity for us to get to know and interact with the local community. We understand that it has been a challenging time for those affected by the earthquake, and we’d like show our support for disaster efforts to bring about a speedy recovery.”
Rush Street has also been promoting its “My Tomakomai” online platform in both Japanese and English languages to solicit local community views about the elements which should be included into a Tomakomai IR. (AGB Nippon)
