The following is a press release from the Coushatta Casino Resort:

Coushatta Casino Resort celebrates its 17th anniversary with a cake-cutting ceremony held today in the casino's showroom. As members of the Coushatta Tribal Council and the casino's General Manager addressed the crowd, the overriding theme was "thanks for a job well done." The casino has enjoyed tremendous success since its opening in 1995. It is the leading economic engine in this area and is one of the largest employers in the state.

A crowd of wellwishers joined Tribal Chairman Kevin Sickey, members of the Tribal Council, and casino management for the cake-cutting ceremony at 10am on Friday, January 13, in Mikko Center. Complimentary cake was served after the ceremony.

On Saturday, January 14, anniversary celebrations continue with cash drawings for over $50,000. There are four $1700 drawings every hour from 6pm until 10pm, and a grand prize drawing at 11pm for $17,000. The casino's anniversary festivities include the grand opening of the casino's new bingo hall on Saturday, January 14, at 10am.

To open the ceremony, Coushatta Princess Jaine Fisher performed The Lord's Prayer in sign language.
