ODAWA CASINO - Collects For Purses With A Purpose
Odawa Casino, with the help of the community, presented donations to the Michigan State Police for their Purses with a Purpose program last week. In honor of Women’s History Month, the Michigan State Police launched the Purses With a Purpose program to help collect important items for victims of sexual assault. When a survivor is leaving an abusive situation, they often must do so quickly and are not able to take necessities with them. The goal of the program was to collect donations of purses that are filled with comfort items and necessities to provide them to these survivors. ‘Purses with a Purpose’ was started in 2019 by a trooper at the Cadillac, MI post who saw what a great need for support there was for victims of sexual assault. Since then, the program has grown and become successful at other MSP posts throughout the state of Michigan. Odawa Casino became a drop off location for items this April and plans to continue to participate in years to come. 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 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.
