Buffalo Run Casino & Resort to present $15,000 to Freeman Women’s Pavilion Fund

When: 11 am

Where: Freeman Women’s Center
Conference room
1532 West 32nd Street
Joplin, Mo.

Background: Throughout the month of October, Buffalo Run Casino & Resort raised money to benefit Freeman Women’s Pavilion Fund, which enables continuing education opportunities for Freeman staff and supplies breast cancer patients with educational resources.

Steve Bashore, Buffalo Run General Manager, will present a check on behalf of the casino and resort. Through employee giving, the sale of breast cancer awareness merchandise, and other fundraising opportunities, Buffalo Run was able to raise an astounding $15,000 for Freeman Women’s Pavilion Fund. This is the second consecutive year the organization has generously contributed to this Freeman fund.

Freeman Women’s Pavilion Fund not only pays for specialized training opportunities for Freeman staff, it provides educational tools for women who have received a breast cancer diagnosis. In addition, donations to this fund help purchase resources promoting the importance of screening mammograms that are distributed at community events.

“This money makes a tremendous difference for the women of our community,” said Wendy Chrisenbery, Wes & Jan Houser Women’s Pavilion Supervisor. “These resources allow patients to better understand their breast cancer diagnosis and helps Freeman provide additional tools for those patients as they continue on their journey through treatment and healing.”
