WORLEY, Idaho (January 20, 2017) — New this year to Coeur d’Alene Casino’s annual Winter Blessing, held in early December, was an expanded charity component in partnership with KDRK The Mountain, KEY-FM 101 and Bob FM giving community members the chance to nominate worthy families and charities.
Checks were given Friday, Jan. 20 to winning recipients that fell into one of two groups – families in need and charity organizations. Winners were nominated by the community and selected by the partnering radio stations.
The following local charities each received $1,000:
Blessings Under the Bridge
Full Circle Equine Rehab Center
Holy Temple Cogic Spokane
Inspiration Dance Studio
Marissa’s Lids for Kids
The Moose Project
Specialized Needs Recreation
St Maries Volunteer Community
Wishing Star Foundation
The remaining $10,000 was donated to nominated families who will remain anonymous.
Each year the Coeur d’Alene Tribe celebrates Winter Blessing. Winter is a quiet time, a time for reflection, a time to come together and honor the past year and what will be coming for the New Year. It is an evening of great tradition, sharing, and history.
During the annual event, the Coeur d’Alene Casino reserves a time to give back to the community, this year presenting the checks at the local radio station.
