LAUGHLIN, NEV. – December 5, 2016 – Aquarius Casino Resort’s fifth annual “Feed A Family” program heads into the Christmas season by auctioning off ten fully decorated Christmas trees.
The tree auction is held in partnership with the Home Depot in Bullhead City, Arizona. The 7’ft, pre-lit trees are fully decorated, with hundreds of ornaments, by the Aquarius Casino Resort Executive Casino Hosts in conjunction with donations received from their guests.
The money raised from the auction goes directly to the Feed A Family program. Last year’s auction helped raise $5,370 and fed 269 families.
“We have already surpassed the amount raised last year because we have already sold 4 trees” said Sean Hammond, General Manager of the Aquarius. “We had one couple purchase two of the trees, the Snowman tree and the Silver & Gold tree, for $2,500 each. The Outer Space tree and Patriotic trees sold for $750 each. The guests that purchased the Patriotic tree requested that it be given to a local veteran in need. It is just amazing to me the generosity of our guests!”
Trees can be viewed in the hotel front lobby or on the Aquarius Casino Resort Facebook’s page now through December 19, 2016. The remaining tree themes available are: Western tree; Angel tree; Santa’s Workshop tree; Red & White tree; Gingerbread Men & Houses tree; and Rolling On The River (anything with wheels) tree.
The Christmas Tree auction ends on Monday, December 19, there is still plenty of time to come place a bid on a tree. Bids can be made at the ace | PLAY center inside Aquarius. Bidding starts at $100 and are made in $20 increments. If a bid is surpassed, bidders are notified and allowed to make another bid if they so choose. Trees can also be immediately purchased for $750 without any additional bidding.
The tree auction is not the only way to donate to the Feed A Family program; resort guests and Aquarius team members are welcome to contribute cash, credit and/or points. For every 12,000 ace | PLAY points contributed, Aquarius will purchase a box of holiday food items large enough for a family of four, including: a 12 pound turkey, potatoes, gravy, vegetables, rolls, cranberry sauce, stuffing, pie, and whipped cream which will then be donated to local food banks and pantries, and distributed to local families.
