Treasure Island to Host Luminaria Ceremony for American Cancer Society

Welch, Minn. (September 4, 2020) Treasure Island Resort & Casino is proud to partner with the American Cancer Society to host a Luminaria Ceremony on Friday, September 4, following weeks of fundraising by team members.

Over the past month, Treasure Island Resort & Casino has joined the fight for a cure for cancer. The efforts began in early August. Team members were able to purchase and decorate luminaria bags with messages and pictures dedicated to loved ones affected by cancer.

The hundreds of luminarias received will be placed at the entrance to Treasure Island. The bags will illuminate the property after dark, shedding light on the disease that affects over a million people in the United States each year. During this time, team members and their families will silently remember those impacted by cancer and the battle they fought.

Treasure Island’s efforts extend beyond the Luminaria Dedication & Ceremony. Donations of unclaimed slot tickets will be accepted through Saturday, October 31. Guests are encouraged to join the fight for a cure by donating their unclaimed tickets at any ticket kiosk or the donation box by the main entrance to Treasure Island Resort & Casino. All funds raised during the Luminaria Dedication & Ceremony as well as the donation period will benefit the American Cancer Society and its ongoing mission to help save lives.
