Foxwoods set to commemorate 24-Karat Gold Anniversary

27 January 2016

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Foxwoods Resort Casino, the largest resort casino in North America, will mark its 24-Karat Gold Anniversary in February with pure excitement and winning all month long highlighted by a ceremonial cake-cutting event, $240,000 in instant cash prizes, $30,000 daily slot and blackjack tournaments, special $24 menus, gold-themed drinks at select restaurants and lounges and much more!

"It's always a special time of year when we celebrate our anniversary," stated Felix Rappaport, President and CEO. "We have enjoyed many successes in our 24 years, and we look forward to continue offering our guests unforgettable experiences for many years to come," he added.

Owned and operated by the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation, Foxwoods Resort Casino was the first of its kind ever built on an Indian reservation, beginning what is now a $28.5 billion dollar Indian Gaming industry among 486 federally recognized tribes.

"Just prior to Foxwoods opening in 1992, no one could have predicted it would be such an overwhelming, overnight success," says Rodney Butler, Chairman of the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation. "We are humbled as we reflect on the past 24 years, because not only have we contributed billions of dollars to Connecticut in gaming revenue and charitable outreach, we've grown stronger and wiser from many unique, once-in-a-lifetime experiences. The Mashantucket Pequots truly are The Wonder Of It All."

24th Anniversary Gala
On Saturday, February 27, the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Council will sponsor an anniversary gala with local officials and dignitaries in attendance.

The official cake-cutting ceremony will take place on Monday, February 15 at 2:00 p.m. on the Retail Concourse across from Activa. All Foxwoods guests are invited to join Chairman Butler, Tribal Council and Tribal Elders Council in celebration and to enjoy a magnificent cake designed by Executive Pastry Chef Franck Iglesias, who is scheduled to open his custom bake shop, Cake by Franck, during the month. The proceedings will begin with a Tribal blessing and dance.

Throughout the entire month, Foxwoods will host daily slot and blackjack tournaments.
