Casino Resorts Extinguish Lights to Honor National Day of Prayers and Remembrance - LAS VEGAS, NV - Observing the National Day of Prayer and Remembrance, Park Place Entertainment resorts nationwide and many other major casino/resorts throughout the United States turned off their famed exterior lights and marquees on September 14, after sunset.

In Las Vegas, major hotel casinos and many businesses along the famed Las Vegas Strip, along with the glittering casino/hotels that line the downtown area's Fremont Street Experience and other resorts in the community, extinguished all their non-essential exterior lighting at 7:45 p.m. on Friday as an expression of sympathy to those who lost relatives and friends in the Sept. 11 attack on New York City and Washington, D.C.

"Here in Las Vegas, the heart of the casino industry, and throughout the country, we are turning off our lights in remembrance of those who lost their lives and as an expression of support for all who are suffering as a result of the unspeakable horror that has been visited on our country,'' said Thomas E. Gallagher, president and chief executive officer of Park Place. "Our lights are our symbol to the world, and by turning them off and leaving them off all night, we demonstrate our support in the most visible way.''

Many casino companies have joined Park Place in the industry gesture. Harrah's Entertainment Inc. is extinguishing their lights at Harrah's resorts throughout the nation (including Harrah's and the Rio in Las Vegas). In Las Vegas, the Mandalay group -- which includes Mandalay Bay, Luxor, Excalibur and Circus Circus -- the Sahara, the Tropicana, the Aladdin, The Venetian, the MGM/Mirage resorts (MGM, Bellagio, Mirage, Treasure Island, New York-New York and Monte Carlo) and the Riviera are among those participating with Park Place properties.
