IP Casino is top team in Heart Walk

IP Casino Resort was named the Top Corporation for the American Heart Association's Oct. 3 Heart Walk after employees raised more than $20,000.

"The American Heart Association is committed to their mission to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke and our team members know it is important," said Duncan McKenzie, general manager of IP Casino and chairman of the Heart Walk.

Team members engaged in friendly competition to raise the most money for the American Heart Association with bake sales, eggroll and fried rice specials, carnival goodies, raffles, chances for prime parking, games and a company-wide silent auction.

The top three teams were Special Events and Marketing; Human Resources, Bakery and Facilities, and Finance. The top three earners were Leslie Barfield (Hotel Sales), Tasha Garriga (Special Events) and Nick Farrish (Finance).
