Neil Bluhm puts money on Cara for hiring
March 22nd, 2017
Billionaire Neil Bluhm is a philanthropist, sure. But he’s not a big name on the gala scene.
So what a surprise to hear he’ll attend the fundraiser for Cara, a nonprofit that helps homeless people or those affected by poverty find jobs.
Bluhm’s Rivers Casino has hired 27 “graduates” of the Cara program over the past five years. And the nonprofit wants to honor Bluhm and Rivers CEO Greg Carlin for their support.
