Scarlet Pearl donates to United Cajun Navy
D’IBERVILLE — Scarlet Pearl Casino Resort donated $20,000 to the United Cajun Navy to support ongoing relief efforts following Hurricane Ida. The hurricane struck Louisiana and Mississippi at the end of August.

through our Scarlet Pearl Cares initiative is a great way to directly help the lives of those most affected
by this storm,” said

United Cajun Navy is
renowned for quickly and
thoroughly reacting to help
those who are in need after

Navy vice president and national spokesman, said the organization has been overwhelmed with the support it
has received from across the country. He credits Scarlet Pearl with their
donation coming when needed the most.

to the United Cajun Navy right away offering assistance. With
proactive partnerships and generous contributions from top-notch corporate citizens like Scarlet Pearl, the United Cajun Navy will be able to keep
serving those in need throughout our community and beyond,” Trascher said.
