Buffalo Run Donates Over $30,000 Freeman Health System

Updated:

Miami, OK - Throughout the month of October, Buffalo Run Casino & Resort strived to spread the word of Breast Cancer Awareness. Teaming with Freeman Health System in Joplin, Missouri, Buffalo Run has been able to donate $25,000 to the cause itself within the previous two years.

This year's 3rd Annual Save The TaTa's event was brought to an end last Friday, November 7th during an invitation only banquet inside the Peoria Showplace at Buffalo Run Casino & Resort. The evening consisted of last efforts to raise donations through fun filled activities not typical seen at fundraising events. Featuring a live auction of decorated brassiere's, charitable blackjack games, live music, prize tables, art pieces from local artist AJ Woods, and much more.

This year's goal was set to raise another $15,000 but with all the efforts and events, Buffalo Run Casino & Resort was able to more than double the amount and donate a total of $30,673.02 to the Freeman Wes and Jan Houser Women's Pavilion for the Helping Friends Mammogram Fund.

The Friday night event alone raised $13,911.00 and was added to the previous $16,762.02 that was raised throughout the month and presented to Freeman Health System. Plans for next year's 4th Annual Save The TaTa's event are in the works.
