Riverwalk donates more than $37,000 to Children’s of Mississippi


Riverwalk Casino Hotel in Vicksburg believes in being involved in the community. They also encourage their guests to do the same, and their guests have certainly responded.

With Riverwalk’s Sharing Is Caring program, they have collected an amazing $37,390 from their guests for Children’s of Mississippi. Riverwalk will present the donation to the hospital at 11 a.m. Friday.

“We are excited to make this donation to Children’s of Mississippi on behalf of our guests,” Ginny Tzotzolas, Riverwalk Casino General Manager, said. “It speaks volumes about their generosity. People in the area always seem to step up for their community, and this cause is no exception.”

Children’s of Mississippi is the pediatric arm of the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson. It includes the state’s only children’s hospital as well as clinics around the state.

“We are so grateful to receive this donation from Riverwalk and their guests,” said Jen Hospodor, director of community partnerships for UMMC.  “We are constantly amazed by the generosity of the people in this area. It is truly inspiring for all of us at Children’s of Mississippi, as well as for our patients and their families.”
