Seeds of Grace at the Clearwater Casino Fat Tuesday Parade of Service


  • Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort 15347 Suquamish Way NE Suquamish, WA 98392, USA US (map)

Again this year, we have been invited to the Clearwater Casino’s Mardi Gras parade! What a joy it was last year to go and tie for 1st place with the Olympic College Foundation. There were many VERY worthy nonprofits there, so I would suggest you find out if your favorite nonprofit organization will be represented (of course if it isn’t Seeds of Grace) and go vote! It is not a complicated process: You have to get a VOTING ticket from the Player’s Club when you go to play. If you get a GOLDEN TICKET from us, (we have a lot!!!) you will receive 2 tickets from the Player’s Club. Extra vote day is February 26 – so go THAT day with your golden ticket and get a total of FOUR (4) votes! And if we have earned your votes, please put YOUR ticket into OUR ticket hopper, which will be directly adjacent to our float! Voting will commence on February 19 and ends at 6:00 PM on March 4. The parade is March 5 at 7:00 PM.

Our theme this year centers on how Seeds of Grace is educating the community using Lichen Hollow!
