WORLEY, Idaho (January 2, 2018) — The new year marks a significant milestone for the Coeur d’Alene Tribe – the Coeur d’Alene Casino has been in business 25 years. From small beginnings as a bingo operation and through seven major expansions evolving into the successful, community-minded casino resort hotel it is today.
The structure that housed the bingo operation is little more than a back wall today but it is tells a timeless story in the world of traditional Native American hospitality. Tribal traditions include a respect and reverence for natural law and responsible environmental stewardship.
Traditions of sharing are also seen through the property’s commitment made by the Coeur d’Alene Tribe to provide five percent of all gaming profits to public schools and education, a donation that has reached more than $33.3 million. The casino donations committee provides almost $100,000 annually to local charities, service organization, school programs, local emergencies and other deserving fundraisers.
The Coeur d’Alene Casino’s key objective is providing a comfortable and memorable getaway and it will continue to do so into 2018 with more entertainment than ever before, the continuation of promotions on dining, room stays, golf and spa and as always making winners of school districts and their children, of educational efforts on all levels and of charitable causes throughout the region.
