Silverton Casino Team Members Raise $10,000 for
Goodie Two Shoes Foundation
The team members at Silverton Casino actively raised $10,000 in December to donate to Goodie Two Shoes Foundation, a non-profit organization in southern Nevada that strives to outfit 10,000 children in need annually with new shoes and socks.
During the month of December, the team members at Silverton Casino participated in fundraising activities to help support Goodie Two Shoes Foundation by purchasing drawing tickets for over 30 unique gift baskets that were donated by area businesses. They also bought tickets for a pancake breakfast and a lunch featuring gourmet grilled cheese with tomato bisque soup served by the executive team. The most creative way that the team had collected money was through a “Flossing” dance contest at the team member’s holiday party, which raised over $1,000 alone.
“Silverton Casino has adopted Goodie Two Shoes Foundation as a local non-profit organization that we have partnered with for six years.” states president, Rob Kunkle. “The team members look forward to volunteering at the shoe distribution each year and helping out in our community.”
This year, Silverton Casino will be volunteering in March at a local shoe distribution event. This event supplies children in need the opportunity to receive a brand new pair of shoes, socks, school supplies, and toiletries.
