How to enter the Tribal Spirit of Giving Celebration
We ask Tribal properties to share special events, acts of generosity, and good works outside of your job description that have improved the lives of your community.
How do I tell our story? We do a lot of cool stuff at our casino.
Through a very simple submission process, at no charge, we ask you to upload pictures and/or videos plus a short description about your Tribal organization’s good works. That’s it! Submissions have closed for 2018, you can view all of the stories here. Submissions will open again on October 1, 2019.
What happens next?
After we close the submission window on December 1, 2018, we’ll open up the website for all of our subscribers to view. They can vote on their top five favorites that have inspired them, but every submission is a winner in our book.
We recognize all the casinos who participated and shared their story in articles in industry magazines. Plus, we celebrate all entries at a special luncheon on Wednesday, January 30, at the Raving NEXT Conference. Even if you’re not attending the conference, you can attend the lunch. We have a motivational speaker at the lunch who ties it all together. This is an opportunity to stop thinking about the P&L and think about why we really do what we do.
You have time to think about the stories you can share with us next October. Think about the very cool stuff you’ve done for your community (a get fit class for your team members, a special veterans dinner, a fundraising event for the local food bank, a parkland clean-up … you get it).
And furthermore …
We know that just through doing your jobs as team members of a Tribal casino, you have a direct impact providing resources and care for Tribal elders, education and career opportunities for Tribal children, and income and benefits for your community. We celebrate all that you do everyday, as well as those special efforts above and beyond your job description that you do for the betterment of your guests, your communities and your team members.
