Funds to be raised through proceeds and gaming winnings of patriotic-themed offerings for Southern Nevada’s only 24/7 crisis intervention and housing facility for homeless veterans
LAS VEGAS (April 22, 2016)- Station Casinos will once again launch a month-long fundraising effort to raise awareness and funds for homeless veterans and their families who reside at Veterans Village located in Downtown Las Vegas. Proceeds raised throughout May will benefit Southern Nevada’s only 24/7 crisis intervention and housing facility that cares for our local homeless veterans and their families. In 2015, Month of Honor raised $58,000 for Veterans Village. From May 1-31, Station Casinos properties and venues including the cafes, casino bars, bingo rooms, bowling alleys and gaming areas including designated blackjack and poker tables will be themed patriotic to signify where the Company will donate a portion of its proceeds and gaming winnings.
“We are honored to be a part of the Station Casinos’ Month of Honor which will assist Veterans Village to continue to provide housing and supportive services for our United States Veterans with honor and dignity,” said Veterans Village founder Dr. Arnold Stalk.
Month of Honor will feature:
Patriotic Pastries: A variety of exclusively created patriotic-themed desserts such as Bundt cakes, sugar cookies, red velvet cupcakes, candy-covered strawberries and brownies will be available at all cafes including Boulder Station, Green Valley Ranch Resort, Palace Station, Red Rock Resort, Texas Station, Santa Fe Station and Sunset Station.
Take a vet to dinner: Guests may donate some of their Boarding Pass rewards points at any Rewards Center in exchange for a buffet voucher to be enjoyed by a resident of Veterans Village. In 2015, guests donated enough Boarding Pass points to provide more than 1,400 buffet meals to the residents of Veterans Village.
Round up for honor: Guests will be invited to round up their dining check in all steakhouses, cafes and buffets.
Red Bull Match: Red Bull will generously donate $1 for every Red Bull and/or cocktail that includes Red Bull ordered at any casino bars.
Bingo Patriotic Packs: Special bingo pink packs will be offered at the majority of Monday bingo sessions for $4. Patriotic packs will be available in both paper and electronic. The $1 cash ball validation fee is not included in the purchase price of the patriotic packs. Properties participating in the bingo patriotic packs include Boulder Station, Green Valley Ranch Resort, Palace Station, Red Rock Resort, Santa Fe Station, Sunset Station and Texas Station. Bingo patriotic packs were generously donated by gaming partner Fortunet.
“21” for the Red, White and Blue: Properties that offer blackjack tables will have a designated “patriotic” table where a portion of the gaming winnings will be donated to the charity. Table felts were generously donated by gaming partner GPI.
