LAUGHLIN, Nevada – June 3, 2013 – Team members at Aquarius Casino Resort were named “Most Creative” during the third annual Foodstruction anti-hunger event challenging teams to collect canned and non-perishable food items and then use those items in a creative display.
Foodstruction supports the Bullhead City Senior Center and the Colorado River Food Bank. Kiwanis of Bullhead City and Bullhead City Junior High School hosted the Saturday, May 11, 2013 event.
For the award winning display, the Aquarius Casino Resort team relied upon the theme “From the River to the Strip” which used food items to incorporate a likeness of sister property Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower in Las Vegas into the entry.
A replica of the Aquarius Casino Resort was constructed out of canned soup and boxes of instant oatmeal situated next to a Colorado River made up of blue sweetener packets and candies. The iconic Stratosphere Tower, at more than 11 feet high, included oatmeal, canned foods and other food items to create the tower and one-of-a-kind thrill rides on top.
“This was our first year taking part in this charity event and to receive an award, especially to be named ‘Most Creative’, gives the entire team a sense of accomplishment,” said Aquarius Casino Resort General Manager Sean Hammond.
The award-winning Aquarius Casino Resort Foodstruction team included Hammond, Tim Abrams, Gina Najdzin, Vern Garret, Barbie Greenwood, Hope Horsman, Dawn Dias and Eric Buska.
The Aquarius entry was built from 428 separate food items, which were donated by the property’s corporate giving arm, Community Connections. Food donations used in all entries will be donated to the Colorado River Food Bank and the Bullhead City Senior Center.
