STATION CASINOS DONATE PROJECT PINK PROCEEDS TO SUSAN G. KOMEN
Station Casinos recently presented Susan G. Komen of Southern Nevada with $74,425 from its fourth annual Project Pink, a monthlong fundraising initiative during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The project raised funds at 10 Station Casinos’ properties through pink-themed dining, entertainment and gaming offerings. Since its inception, Project Pink has raised $200,000 for the local charity.
Project Pink was developed in 2010 by Red Rock’s executive pastry chef Jaret Blinn, who became active in the fight against breast cancer after his mother lost her battle with the disease. The response by the public was so overwhelming that the company expanded those efforts to several areas throughout each property.
