Washington tribal casino wins award

5 September 2007

SPOKANE, Washington -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Northern Quest, a Kalispel Casino has earned the prestigious 2006 AGORA award for business excellence in the large business category presented by the Spokane Chamber of Commerce. According to Curt Holmes, Director of Public and Governmental Affairs and Kalispel Tribal Vice Chairman,

"Earning this award is based on three things; being able to demonstrate proven growth and economic development, the practice of superior treatment to our employees, and the fact that Northern Quest Casino performs outstanding community services". The Latin word 'Agora', means market place or commerce.

Holmes continues, "It's truly an honor to be recognized by our peers in this way. The other four finalists have been in business for much longer then we have and we knew that would pose a challenge. It was important that we remind the panel of judges that even though the casino may only be five years old, the Kalispel Tribe's roots go back generations".
