Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana and Coushatta Casino Resort Donate $7,775 to Louisiana Lupus Foundation
Benefiting Citizens of Louisiana Who Are Living with Lupus
June 14, 2019
KINDER, LA––During May 2019, Coushatta Casino Resort associates participated in a fundraiser to benefit a small non-profit organization, Louisiana Lupus Foundation, whose mission is to help the citizens of Louisiana who are living with lupus.
Casino associates who wished to donate had the option to purchase specially designed t-shirts displaying a message promoting lupus awareness. Participating associates were allowed to wear their t-shirts with jeans as part of their uniform on designated days during the month. Through generosity and community spirit, casino associates raised a total of $7,775.
Louisiana Lupus Foundation’s Support Group Coordinator Henrietta Jackson accepted the donation from Coushatta Tribal Councilmembers Loretta Williams and Kevin Sickey and Coushatta Casino Resort Director of Human Resources Bill Gadberry and Chief Financial Officer Greg Hinton. They were joined by Coushatta Casino Resort associates Leigh Harris, Director of Organizational Development and Liz Willis, Uniforms Wardrobe Manager, who was diagnosed with lupus 12 years ago.
Ms. Jackson stated, “This large amount is so unexpected! A big thank-you to all who donated. This will go a long way to help with the Foundation’s awareness campaign and to assist needy lupus patients with overwhelming expenses from extended hospital stays––some lasting for several months. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this wonderful donation!”
The Louisiana Lupus Foundation is the largest group in Louisiana and South Mississippi, serving thousands of persons each year. Support group leaders in local areas take an active role in outreach along with volunteers who carry out the mission and purpose of the foundation on a daily basis.
Coushatta Casino Resort is located in Kinder, Louisiana on US Highway 165 (I-10 exit 44) and features over 2,000 slots and more than 65 table games including live poker, plus live bingo and off-track betting. Phone 800-584-7263 for more information or visit the website at www.ccrla.com.
