Gun Lake Casino To Host Toys for Tots Charity Event Dec. 1–16

WAYLAND, MI – Gun Lake Casino (GLC) has announced its annual Toys for Tots fundraiser, which will run from Dec. 1 through Dec. 16.

On Saturday, Dec. 2 from 10:00am to 12:00pm, GLC is hosting a family-themed kickoff event. Children and families are invited to bring a toy for donation, gaining donors full access to receive pictures with Santa, enjoy hot chocolate, create pancakes at the pancake bar, decorate cookies, and write letters to Santa. Admission is free with the donation of a new, unwrapped toy.

“This year, we are making a big push to get the word out for our annual Toys for Tots campaign,” said Carter Pavey, Vice President of Marketing. “We are inviting everyone to visit on Dec. 2 to take part in the spirit of giving while enjoying free food and activities and getting your family photos with Santa Claus.”

The 2022 GLC Toys for Tots campaign raised over 1,400 toys for area children, along with a $15,000 donation. To surpass last year’s donation efforts, this year GLC is offering a dollar-for-dollar match on toy donations for free slot play up to $100. Donated toys must be new, unwrapped, and accompanied by a receipt of purchase.

Each year, GLC partners with the Marine Corps Lakeshore Toys for Tots in a continuing effort to make sure less fortunate children receive holiday gifts.
