Seminole Casino Coconut Creek Once Again Supporting
Pancreatic Cancer Action Network®
During Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month in November
COCONUT CREEK, Fla. (October 24, 2018) – Seminole Casino Coconut Creek has announced it will once again support the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network® during Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month in November.
Founded in 1999, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network® (PanCAN) is dedicated to fighting the world’s toughest cancer. Its urgent mission is to save lives and attack pancreatic cancer on all fronts: research, clinical initiatives, patient services and advocacy. The organization’s effort is amplified by a nationwide network of grassroots support. It is determined to improve patient outcomes today and to double survival by 2020.
Through its “Coco For A Cure” program, Seminole Casino Coconut Creek will help raise awareness and funds for the fight against pancreatic cancer via various initiatives to include two special events, the sale of logoed items, food and beverage programs, and purple-themed décor throughout the property.
“We’re definitely all in at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek to help find a cure for this terrible disease,” said Jonathan Marcus, Vice President of Marketing at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek. “Last year, we donated $25,000 to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network®. We certainly want to surpass that figure this year in a huge way.”
“Thelma Houston’s Motown Experience,” featuring a tribute to Aretha Franklin, will take place in The Pavilion on Friday, November 16, at 8 p.m. Tickets (priced at $25/$35/$100 – the latter for couch seating) are on sale now via Ticketmaster locations, online at Ticketmaster.com, or by calling 800-653-8000. The Pavilion box office will also open at 1 p.m. on the day of the show for on-site ticket purchases and will call pickup.
Seminole Casino Coconut Creek will donate all cash ticket and concession sales to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network®. Houston will perform a medley of Franklin’s songs in the wake of her passing away from pancreatic cancer.
On Thursday, November 29, the property will host the ”Color Purple Comedy Hour” in Legends Lounge at 8 p.m. in support of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network®. Tickets (priced at $25 – the minimum donation) can be purchased by calling Customer Care at (954) 585-5379. The show will be hosted by Erin Willett, of NBC’s The Voice, and will feature comedians Dustin Chafin and Jimmy Shubert. Live entertainment will be provided by Jenny Love.
Additionally, the property will hold a $50,000 B•I•N•G•O For A Cure event on Sunday, November 25, at 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. in The Pavilion.
Players can win up to $5,000 cash and there will be 10 games with a $25,000 prize pool per session. They can also participate in a special game each session in support of Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month. There’s a $5 buy-in with a $1,500 prize pool per session. All proceeds will benefit the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network®. Guests must earn $10 Comp Dollars starting at 7 a.m. on promotion day to be eligible.
