Casino Receives Friend of the Children Award

On November 14, Potawatomi Bingo Casino and the Forest County Potawatomi Foundation received the Friend of the Children Award from the Coalition of Children, Youth and Families for their deep commitment to the children of Wisconsin. Honorary Chair Donald Driver helped present the award.

The Casino was honored for its $12.5 million contribution to hundreds of children’s charities through its Miracle on Canal Street program, including the Coalition who is a 4-time beneficiary. 

The Coalition recognized the Foundation’s $30 million in giving to the community, including a $25,000 grant to the Coalition in 2004, which made an enormous impact on the organization and allowed them to pilot their Home to Stay program.
