Potawatomi Hotel & Casino Celebrates 25TH Anniversary With $25,000 Gift to Walnut Way
Donation to support organizatoin's Growing Youth Leadership program
Walnut Way was chosen because of their commitment to making the community safer, providing increased access to fresh and healthy foods, fostering an environment of academic achievement and positively impacting the local business economy.
The $25,000 gift will help support Walnut Way’s Growing Youth Leadership program which engages teens in intensive urban agriculture education, leadership development and job training. The teens will grow a wide range of chemical-free vegetables to sell at local farmer’s markets and participate in weekly learning labs and community service projects.
For the past 25 years, Potawatomi Hotel & Casino has made it a priority to give back to the community, especially to organizations which focus their attention on our area’s youth.
“Milwaukee, and the region as a whole, has given us so much,” said Mike Goodrich, Potawatomi Hotel & Casino General Manager. “We’re more than happy to give back, especially to those in our central city doing the hard work to keep neighborhoods safe and thriving economically.”
