LAUGHLIN, NEV. – Aquarius Casino Resort hosted the 25th annual Boys & Girls Club of the Colorado River
‘Bids for Kids’ Auction on Saturday, Jan. 30th in the Aquarius Pavilion. The annual fundraiser, which auctions off unique items donated by Boys & Girls Club of the Colorado River board members, supporters and local Tri-State businesses, raised $66,000 in crucial funds to support the Club’s programs as well as provide scholarships for kids in the TriState area.
“We were honored to host the ‘Bids for Kids’ auction for the fifth year in a row at Aquarius,” said General Manager of Aquarius Casino Resort, Sean Hammond. “The funds generated at this fun and unique event go toward such a great cause and we’re happy to be a part of it.”
Horizon Community Bank was the title sponsor of the live auction, which is the Club’s largest fundraising event of the year. Participants were able to bid on one-of-a-kind items including footballs signed by stars Tom Brady and Peyton and Eli Manning, Grand Canyon Railway Tickets, a Black Canyon River Adventure, Arizona Diamond Back tickets and popular pieces of ‘Kid Art’.
“We continued to be humbled and honored by the support of our community through donated auction items and attending our events,” said President and CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Colorado River, Terri J. Tomlinson. “As always the Aquarius Casino Resort and its staff are truly wonderful folks and we couldn’t pull off this size of an event without them. This year’s auction generated the highest gross revenue in eight years of just over $66,000. We thank you all for the continued support of our area youth.”
