Pinnacle Entertainment Foundation Donates $80,000 To National Hurricane Museum & Science Center

"This donation is a significant part of our continued commitment to create a rewarding place for our team members to work in a community we have pledged to support and uplift in ways that make our team proud to call it home," said Keith W. Henson, Senior Vice President and General Manager of L'Auberge Lake Charles. He adds, "Just as our properties offer a memorable place for visitors to play, this partnership will ultimately boost tourism in Southwest Louisiana and improve quality of life for our 2,200+ team members."

"Pinnacle has demonstrated time and time again they are significantly invested in the region and this early show of support to NHMSC will fuel our commitment to move forward with the project but also to begin instructing a nation of students about hurricanes and their aftereffects, beginning today," said Gray Stream, NHMSC Board Chairman. "This gift from the Pinnacle Entertainment Foundation is really an investment in education and enables the NHMSC to reach millions of students with important lessons they can study in their classrooms all across America."

The $80,000 contribution comes on the heels of Pinnacle donating four acres of lakefront property to the City of Lake Charles with a fair market value of $3.2-million, a $20,000 contribution to rebuild Millennium Park in downtown Lake Charles and hundreds of thousands of dollars in sustained charitable initiatives across the region. L'Auberge Casino Resort is the largest private employer in Calcasieu Parish and Pinnacle Entertainment now employs more than 5,000 team members statewide.  

The NHMSC is expected to attract 220,000 visitors to Southwest Louisiana each year and have a $55-million total annual economic impact. Visitors to www.nhmsc.com can learn more about the $65-million facility and preview exhibits planned for the museum and science center. The website also features information on the origins and background of the project and videos of the iconic building design.

About NHMSC

The National Hurricane Museum & Science Center (a 501c-3 non-profit), as its name suggests, is a hybrid organization: part museum because it will chronicle the history and social meanings of hurricanes through collections and archives; and part science center because it will use interactive and immersive educational experiences to explore the science and impacts of hurricanes as powerful forces of nature. To be located on the waterfront of Lake Charles, Louisiana, this center will be an irresistible destination for the entire Gulf region. Utilizing the science of hurricanes, the NHMSC will work with K-12 schools to stimulate the learning of basic math and science. Through practical and engaging education, the NHMSC will tell the natural and social story of hurricanes and the wetlands environment while delivering memorable experiences to thousands of visitors.
