D.A.V. HONORS $10,000 GIFT FROM EDGEWATER & COLORADO BELLE
December 1, 2017
LAUGHLIN, NV — Commemorating the $10,000 donation made by Colorado Belle & Edgewater Casino Resorts to the London Bridge Chapter of the Disabled American Veterans (D.A.V.) on November 11, Commander Bud Watts and Sr. Vice Commander Frank Blain presented a plaque to the casinos’ Sr. VP & GM Ryan Walker. The donation, representing a portion of Kid Rock concert ticket sales, was made to the D.A.V. on Veteran’s Day just prior to the Kid Rock concert at the Laughlin Event Center. “All of us at Marnell Gaming are proud to help an organization that provides for our Veterans. The service that the London Bridge Chapter gives to our Veterans of Mohave County is done so with a great sense of community and gratitude. The money donated stays local, and with so many Veterans in our community, we need that for these ladies and gentlemen who have served and sacrificed for our country,” Walker said.
DAV IN NEED OF NEW VANS TO TRANSPORT VETERANS TO HOSPITALS
Commander Watts said the London Bridge D.A.V. Chapter provides transportation to the VA Hospitals in Prescott and Phoenix, Arizona, for veterans throughout the year, and the cash donation will be used to help purchase a new van. The chapter serves approximately 20,000 veterans over 18,000 square miles and the excessive mileage makes it necessary to replace the vans every two years. In addition to funding their ongoing program of providing transportation for veterans to the hospital, the chapter helps veterans with financial needs, including helping to pay utility bills, car payments and mortgages. The D.A.V. Chapter also helps the veterans by assisting them with their claims with the VA, and becomes their advocate in processing those claims. People interested in donating to the D.A.V. Chapter 27 can call the office at 928-855-0356 or write them at London Bridge D.A.V. Chapter 27, P. O. Box 325, Lake Havasu City, Arizona 86405.
