The Casino of the Rockies recently presented the BC Professional Fire Fighters Burn Fund with it’s second quarterly, ‘Found Money Donation’ cheque for $2,627.24. The funds will be used towards the ‘Burn Fund Centre’ which will serve as a “home away from home” for patients and families while undergoing treatment, on discharge transition, or returning for follow up treatment in Vancouver, BC.
‘Found Money’ is comprised of any monies left behind by casino patrons, such as the few cents that are left over when you cash out a slot machine ticket. These nickels and dimes truly add up over time, enabling the Casino to make a substantial quarterly donation. Earlier this year, a casino staff member was badly burned during a grass fire at her home, and utilized the services provided by the BC Professional Fire Fighter’s Burn Fund, which led to nominating this very worthy organization with the donation.
