LAS VEGAS – The Nevada Gaming Control Board is investigating the closure of “Frank Marino’s Divas Las Vegas” show at the LINQ hotel-casino, according to John Moran, Jr., a member of the Nevada Gaming Control Board.
The investigation is focused on the reason for the show closing.
Marino parted ways with Caesars Entertainment last weekend. He denied what he called numerous false allegations, but admitted, “Due to my own negligence, Make-A-Wish has not received a check from me for some time. I am personally embarrassed and ashamed. I take full responsibility and am sincerely apologetic for this situation.”
Marino would sell Diva items at the show to benefit the Make-A-Wish foundation.
“While we were very disappointed to learn about this situation, our understanding is that things will be made right,” said Caroline Ciocca, the president/CEO of Make-A-Wish in Southern Nevada. “We are so grateful for the many corporations and individuals in our community who support our kids by helping us grant life-changing wishes. This situation will not deter us from our mission of helping as many children as possible.”
Caesars released the following statement:
“Caesars Entertainment holds itself to the highest standards and given the non-payment of donations to Make a Wish by Divas, we determined that a relationship with this show was no longer suitable.”
