Petoskey, Mich. – Odawa Casino raised $8,883 in donations to present to Uniting Three Fires Against Violence last week as a part of the Spare Change Donation Program.

Odawa Casino launched the Spare Change Donation program in August 2020 in response to the national coin shortage which simultaneously supports local nonprofits within the community, and has expanded into an ongoing project. The program includes boxes around the casino floor where guests are able to donate the change or their gaming vouchers to support important local organizations.

Uniting Three Fires Against Violence is an organization that aims to establish a network among advocates within Indian Country to provide comprehensive services to victims of domestic violence, empower survivors, and ensure that native victims receive culturally appropriate services.

If an organization would like to be considered as one of the recipients in future months, they are encouraged to contact Community Development Coordinator, Marty Van De Car at mvandecar@odawacasino.com.

Owned and operated by the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians, Odawa Casino in Petoskey opened in June, 2007 and features nearly 1,000 slot machines, table games, multiple dining options, the fabulous new Victories Sports and Entertainment Bar, and an off property 137-room hotel. Odawa Casino Mackinaw City opened in May 2016, and recently completed a new expansion for an even higher quality gaming experience.
