Ameristar St. Charles Team Members Make the Holidays Bright for Those In Need 

Ameristar St. Charles helped out Santa this holiday season by donating gifts to the children in our local charity Angels’ Arms. We are fortunate to have so many team members who enjoy helping others less fortunate than we all are, especially during the holiday season.

Team members collected ornaments off the Christmas tree in our Team Member Dining Room and purchased new gifts for the 50 children in Angels’ Arms foster care organization.

Ameristar St. Charles Blood Drive

Team Members give the gift of life this holiday season!


As a way to live our value of CARE and help others in Being the Best Healthy You, we partnered with the American Red Cross to host a blood drive here on our property this last Thursday.

I am proud to announce we collected blood units to help those in need that could save up to 48 lives! One in ten people entering a hospital need blood. Without dedicated individuals like you, the Red Cross could not carry out its mission.

Ameristar St. Charles Goes to the Pets!

Ameristar is making a great effort in their community outreach programs. During the Holliday Season they also get casino patron's involved.  Last year they raised money for the Center for Hearing and Speech with an amazing Ginger Bread House.  For $25 guest could dine in a large hand crafted ginger bread house.  

The CP Charities donation system could generate approximately $20,000-$31,500 every month for local St Charles non for profits. This would all be from casino patrons having the option to donate their change at a redemption kiosk.
