Twenty northwestern Wisconsin school districts and charitable organizations have extra school supplies thanks to the generosity of guests and employees of the three St. Croix Casinos.
From August 1 through 5, casino guests donating at least two school supply items at any of the St. Croix Casinos – Danbury, Hertel or Turtle Lake – received $5 in Turtle Bucks slot play. Guests donating at least five items received $10 in slot play. Everyone donating also received entries for drawings for two $100 Walmart gift cards held at each casino on Wednesday, August 10. During the five-day drive, more than 3,000 guests donated school supply items.
Elizabeth Denniston, James Jayme, Phyllis Lowe, Marvin “Tom” Tahmahkera and Judy Warmanen of St. Croix Casinos delivered school supplies to school districts and charities in Barron, Burnett, Polk, St. Croix, Sawyer and Washburn counties August 8 – 10.
