Silver Slipper Casino gifts bus to VFW Post 4803

Silver Slipper Casino gifted a van to the VFW Post 4808 today.

Utilizing promotional funds made available by Coca-Cola, the casino purchased a 2015 Star Craft wheelchair accessible van. This van will replace an old van for the Van for Vets Program.

This program was organized by the VFW members to transport any veterans in Hancock County to their scheduled doctors or hospital appointments if they have no other means of transportation available.

A dedication service was held today as well to officially hand off the keys to the new owners at the post. Silver Slipper General Manager John Ferrucci said, “These guys are great for the community. They didn’t talk much about themselves today, but they do a bunch for the kids. Over 100 bikes they do on Christmas. They fry turkeys for the people who can’t afford the food. They just do things all year and they only got like 100 members and they work really hard and do the right thing.”

After the service, members and friends gathered inside for drinks and food to celebrate.
