FIFTY-FOOT GUITAR AT HARD ROCK HOTEL & CASINO SIOUX CITY TO BE TURNED OFF FOR EARTH HOUR EVENT ON MARCH 30
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (March 27, 2019) – Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sioux City is pleased to announce that it will participate in this year’s Earth Hour from 8:30-9:30 p.m. March 30, 2019. During this time, all outdoor signage on the property will be turned off, including the fifty-foot guitar on the hotel roof, which has not been purposely shut off since the grand opening in 2014.
Earth Hour is a global environmental movement by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to bring attention to climate change. During last year’s Earth Hour, a record-breaking 188 countries and territories took part in the event including 18,000 participating landmarks. Some of the world’s most iconic landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, the Empire State Building and the Sydney Opera House have participated in this event.
“We have not turned off our guitar since our grand opening almost five years ago, and there is no better occasion to do so than during our participation with Earth Hour,” said General Manager Jim Franke. “One of the founding mottos of Hard Rock is ‘Save the Planet,’ and we are thrilled to be one of the millions of businesses around the world participating in bringing global environmental change to the forefront.”
