HARD ROCK DONATION: Avanzar, a New Jersey nonprofit organization that provides assistance in a variety of areas to individuals and families, receives a $20,000 donation from Hard Rock Atlantic City during a ceremony June 12. Avanzar was among a group of charities that received $20,000 each, a figure that was matched by Hard Rock International Chairman and Seminole Gaming CEO Jim Allen (far left in photo) and other Hard Rock Atlantic City leaders.
Avanzar posted the following on Facebook:
