Local Vegas gaming technology company, MGT (Micro Gaming Technologies), has made it a mission to focus it’s philanthropic efforts on a local valley charity each year. Every Fall MGT donates raffle proceeds and other donated items collected through an annual “Employee Appreciation Day” party.
The idea for the Employee Appreciation day has evolved since the first event 5 years ago. With her own son in law deployed, MGT owner Terry Bryant was first inspired to send Christmas care packages to military serving oversees who were not able to spend the holidays with their families. That year over 75 packages were sent to troops in Afghanistan.
In 2012, with the spotlight still on family and the holidays, MGT’s team made sure Las Vegas families in need could enjoy Thanksgiving dinners. For weeks leading up to the company event employees ran a food drive and made dinner gift baskets with the turkey and all of its trimmings, which were delivered by the Salvation Army.
Since the inaugural MGT Employee Appreciation Day, the company has worked with Marines Toys for Tots, Street Teens, and this year in 2015; Peggys Attic. MGT is a small family ran business, and its owners Mark and Terry Bryant take pride in the family focused company culture. It is important to MGT’s owners that they enrich not only their employees family’s lives, but also those in the Las Vegas valley who might be in need.
