RICHFIELD, MN – Mystic Lake Casino Hotel’s recent Change for the Better program prompted patrons to donate spare change to support the non-profit Fraser – Minnesota’s largest and most experienced provider of autism and early childhood mental health services. The spare change collected added up to a total of $10,315 that went toward the individuals and families that Fraser serves. If a guest had a redeemable ticket for $11.14, the machine showed the Fraser logo and gave patrons the option to gift the $0.14 to Fraser as a donation.
“We are so grateful to Mystic Lake for supporting Fraser individuals and families,” said Emma Craig, Fraser Community Engagement Associate. “Community fundraisers like this one make it easy for individuals to contribute to our mission in a meaningful and tangible way.”
Mystic Lake introduced the Change for the Better program in May 2017. “The Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community and Mystic Lake have a strong tradition of helping others,” says Alison Fogarty, Vice President of Marketing for Mystic Lake Casino Hotel. “We are proud to provide this program as a way to help our guests support Fraser and other great organizations in our community.”
Fraser is a non-profit that has an 85-year legacy as a premier provider of services that help individuals navigate autism, mental health and diverse needs at every stage of life. Their whole-person, coordinated approach provides education, employment, healthcare and housing to help clients thrive from infancy through adulthood.
