LAUGHLIN, NEV. – November XX, 2016 – Aquarius Casino Resort Team Members help to paint the river R.E.D. on Friday, November 11 in support of our military members, past and present by wearing their R.E.D. (Remembering Everyone Deployed) tee shirts. The mission of RedShirtFridays.org, a non-political organization dedicated to honoring our nation’s servicemen and servicewomen serving our country overseas.
Team Members were given the opportunity to donate $5 and receive a R.E.D. T-shirt to wear at work during the “Casual for a Cause” Friday. At the conclusion of the fundraiser, Aquarius Team Members presented a check to board members of the Tri-State Military Moms, Inc. representing 100% of the proceeds raised.
“It’s great to see how our team members really stepped up, showing their compassion and support for our troops!” said Aquarius General Manager Sean Hammond. “Due to guest requests last year, we also allowed the public to participate and helped us reach this goal.” By purchasing – and proudly wearing – the R.E.D. T-shirts, Team Aquarius initially raised $2,000 by the Friday pickup time. But the goodwill continued to flow throughout the weekend with additional shirt sales to Aquarius Team Members and guests, raising another $1,025, grand totaling $3,025. All proceeds were donated to the Tri-State Military Moms, a local nonprofit organization that sends care packages to U.S. troops deployed overseas. The organization is also responsible for displaying all the banners on Highway 95 in Bullhead City, Arizona, showing the sons, daughters, fathers, mothers, grandsons, granddaughters, and all family members that are currently serving our country.
"XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.” said Tri-State Military Moms President and Co-founder Cindy Frizelle.
“We are truly grateful to each and every participant, and to Sean Hammond, for helping us to make our passion and vision, an ongoing reality. Each Friday, our Tri- State Military Moms, wear our Aquarius R.E.D. shirts proudly!"
The R.E.D. T-shirt, Red Shirt Fridays concept is part of the ongoing mission of RedShirtFridays.org and its founder Lloyd (Doc) Hofmeister, a U.S. military veteran.
