Contribution showcases strength and success of Paragon this year and its continued investment in the surrounding community
The Tunica-Biloxi Tribe of Louisiana’s Tribal Council recently announced that Paragon Casino Resort has contributed $43,974 to Avoyelles Parish.
“We take great pride in being able to provide these funds to our parish and community, especially during what has been a terribly difficult year for so many,” said Tunica-Biloxi Chairman Marshall Pierite. “We are hopeful that this funding, which comes from the community’s continued support for Paragon, will support significant improvements throughout Avoyelles Parish and better serve residents and neighbors now and into the future.”
Due to the success of Paragon Casino Resort in the third quarter of 2020, the Tribe was able to make a contribution to Avoyelles Parish which is the gaming compact agreement that the Tribe has with the state of Louisiana. Since Paragon Casino Resort opened its doors 26 years ago, the Tribe has been able to provide more than $29 million to local entities through these quarterly distributions.
“We are so glad to see that businesses like Paragon Casino Resort are thriving in our community and are grateful for what these funds will enable us to do for our parish,” said Police Jury Chairman Kirby Roy.
