The Penticton Starfish Pack program provides backpacks to local school-aged children and their families on weekends, filled with food donated by the Penticton Rotary Club, in partnership with Save-On Foods. In 2018, Cascades Casino Penticton hosted a first anniversary appreciation dinner for program volunteers, and made a $5,000 donation to provide nine backpacks for a full year.
The amount of information published varies. For example, we may publish more information about winners of larger prizes given there is greater public interest in large prize claims.
Here are the things we may publish about a winner:
- name (given, middle, and surname)
- city/town of current residence
- photograph (of true current appearance)
- prize details
- winner’s story
- marital status
- personal quote
- other personal information, as volunteered by winners during the prize claim process
