Four Winds employees made a $20,000 donation to the Berrien County Suicide Prevention Coalition. The check was presented to the organization October 10.
Throughout the month of September, which is National Suicide Prevention Month, Four Winds Casinos held events to raise money and awareness for the Berrien County Suicide Prevention Coalition. This included selling bracelets at the Hard Rock Café inside Four Winds New Buffalo, and a dunk tank in which Four Winds employees attempted to dunk 20 members of the Four Winds executive team. The Four Winds Food Truck and several Four Winds employees also supported the third annual Run for Hope & Recovery on September 7 in Benton Harbor, Mich.
“Suicide is the tenth leading cause of death in the U.S. and it takes the lives of nearly 40,000 Americans every year,” said Frank Freedman, Chief Operating Officer of Four Winds Casinos. “We are proud that so many Four Winds employees worked together to raise money for such an important cause.”
Four Winds has since donated $10,000 to Kelly Cares Foundation. You can read more about that here.
