KINDER, LA––During September 2019, Coushatta Casino Resort associates participated in a fundraiser to benefit St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital and promote awareness of childhood cancer. Casino associates who wished to donate had the option to purchase specially designed t-shirts and wear as part of their uniform on designated days throughout the month.
Brittni Blankenship, Sr. Regional Development Representative for St. Jude’s, accepted the check from Coushatta Tribal Chairman David Sickey and Tribal Councilmembers Loretta Williams, Crystal Williams, Kevin Sickey and Jonathan Cernek. They were joined by Coushatta Casino Resort’s Tribal Development/Associate Engagement Manager Kristen Johnson, Director of Organizational Development Leigh Harris, and Special Casino Programs Coordinator Nakia Hutchins, whose son Haydn received treatment at St. Jude’s Hospital.
