TOKELAND, WA – Shoalwater Bay Casino recently delivered 200 toys to the South Beach Regional Fire Authority’s Grayland Station for their annual Saturday With Santa toy giveaway. The delivery was the culmination of a two week toy drive hosted by the casino, which provided free play to guests who donated toys. Willapa Bay Enterprises (WBE), the parent company of Shoalwater Bay Casino, makes these donations possible.
“Every member of our board feels deeply that our connection to our tribal and local communities are the foundation of WBE’s values,” said Mary Downs, Willapa Bay Enterprises Chair. “The toy drive perfectly illustrates our goal to support the rural communities we serve.”
“Our guest’s generosity is amazing and our team was right there too donating dozens of toys,” said Johnny Winokur, General Manager Shoalwater Bay Casino. “We are a big part of the small communities we serve and our charity work supported by the Willapa Bay Enterprise Board solidifies that. Of all the great things we have done here our support of the local communities with the charity work we do is [what] I am most proud of.”
