Caesars Entertainment's Don Ross Receives 'Americanism Award' from Anti-Defamation League
Don Ross has profoundly impacted the meeting and events industry over his three decades with Caesars Entertainment, but his passion for service extends beyond conferences and catering. Given his commitment to equality and fair treatment in the community, the Anti-Defamation League honored Ross, Caesars Entertainment Vice President of Meeting Operations in Las Vegas, with the "Americanism Award" during the "Imagine a World Without Hate Gala," Nov. 21.
The ADL established the "Americanism Award" to honor individuals who illustrate and exemplify the ideals and traditions of the U.S. and the ADL. It recognizes leaders in business, community affairs and charitable endeavors who distinguish themselves in their dedication to preserving liberty and advancing the causes of human rights, dignity and equal opportunity.
"I believe that support for the work that ADL is doing is even more critical to protect our schools, places of worship, and communities," Ross said. "I am deeply humbled by this award and will continue to uphold the ADL's pledge to combat hate and foster respect across the globe."
Ross has been the recipient of many awards and honors, including the Dom Pérignon Award of Excellence, the Valen Award of Distinction - UNLV Hotel School, Industry Executive of the Year, the Spirit Award from the Las Vegas Hospitality Association, as well as special recognition from Green Chimneys School and Opportunity Village for community service.
"Congratulations to Don Ross, for being recognized with the 'Americanism Award,' presented by the Anti-Defamation League," said Michael Massari, Chief Sales Officer, Caesars Entertainment. "I am proud to have Don on our team and applaud his involvement and dedication to the Las Vegas community."
The ADL is a leading anti-hate organization that was founded in 1913 in response to an escalating climate of anti-Semitism and bigotry. Today, the ADL is a global leader in exposing extremism, delivering anti-bias education, and fighting hate online, with the ultimate goal being a world in which no group or individual suffers from bias, discrimination, or hate.
