LAUGHLIN, NV – June 13, 2014 – Aquarius Casino Resort team members and many individuals from the tri-state community, donned their bowling gear to participate in the 13th annual Silver Rider Bowling Tournament on Sunday, May 18, which benefitted the Southern Nevada Transit Coalition – Silver Rider Transit Meals on Wheels program.
Over 100 bowlers participated in this year’s Silver Rider Bowling Tournament, which took place at the Riverside Lanes in Laughlin, and together raised an exciting $3,786. Forty Aquarius bowlers and one virtual bowler participated in this year’s event, raising a total of $820 for the cause. One hundred percent of the proceeds raised from the tournament go to support the Meals on Wheels programs for Laughlin and Searchlight, NV.
“This fun event raises funds for an essential community program and we were extremely proud that we were able to participate again this year,” said Aquarius Casino Resort General Manager Sean Hammond. “The commitment our Aquarius team members have to making our community a better place for all is nothing short of inspiring.”
Silver Rider Laughlin is a 501(c)(3) organization that provides public transportation in Laughlin and 12 other southern Nevada rural communities. Silver Rider also offers Meals on Wheels, which is an important nonprofit community program that provides nutritious meals to homebound seniors in Laughlin and Searchlight. In 2013 Silver Rider delivered an average of 70 meals a week.
In addition to bowling, the fundraiser also included a silent auction, 50/50 drawing, raffle, and cash prizes for the top finishers.
