Sky Ute Casino Resort Raises Over $11,800 To Fight Cancer

Thanks to the generosity of Sky Ute Casino Resort guests and Team Members, the Sky Ute “Share Your Spare Change” campaign raised an astounding $11,892.40, to help fight cancer and help those families in need in the region. These funds were raised from October 1- 25th, for the benefit of two local charities. Representatives from the local Cancer Coalition of South West Colorado, and the Cancer Resource Center were on hand to receive the donation.

The Casino floor was awash in pink, complete with pink lighting and décor, during the October “Share your Spare Change” and “Fight 4 a Cure” campaign. Team members added to the lively Pink atmosphere by wearing their Sky Ute Casino, “Think Pink” t- shirts; generating even more excitement and enthusiasm for the cause. For this campaign, unredeemed or donated slot tickets and cash were deposited in specially marked collections bins throughout the property. Those tickets and dollars, combined with the coins that had been tossed into the Casino’s fountain and donations from Team Members added up to the over-the-the top total!
