Wind Creek Hotel and Casino of Atmore continues giving to nonprofits throughout the area, with the latest recipient being Perdido Elementary / Middle School.

Tim Ramer, Property Manager, and Terri Morris, Assistant Property Manager, visited Perdido School, and presented Principal Phillip Stewart with a check for $11,709.20.

While the amount may seem a bit unusual, there is an excellent explanation. Wind Creek has been most creative in their effort to assist area nonprofits through their latest fundraiser. Throughout the casino, they have placed boxes, with each month featuring a different school or other organization. When guests who are visiting the casino get ready to leave, they simply place their ticket with a remaining cash balance on it into the boxes. At the end of the month all of those tickets with  $.01 or more are totaled up and presented to a non-profit, in this case Perdido School.
