BILOXI, Miss.—IP CASINO RESORT SPA representatives joined the Friends of Hiller Park organization in a ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday, April 8, where IP presented the park with a $10,000 donation to support restoration efforts within the park.
IP’s donation has been earmarked to fund a protective awning for a playground with accessible activities for individuals with disabilities. The awning is the last phase of the project, which began last year after another donation from IP funded the purchase of a wheelchair-accessible swing.
“IP is proud to be part of an effort that will help make Hiller Park’s playground more accessible and inclusive to children of all abilities,” said Duncan McKenzie, Vice President and General Manager of IP. “We hope the IP’s donation will bring several improvements to Hiller Park that can be enjoyed by the residents and visitors of Biloxi.”
The donation is part of an annual charitable giving campaign which will award more than $1 million to non-profit organizations in the Gulf Coast region in 2017. To learn more about IP CASINO RESORT SPA, please visit www.ipbiloxi.com.
