SOUTH BEND, Ind. - The Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians and Four Winds Casinos donated $120,000 to Beacon Children's Hospital during a check presentation ceremony on Wednesday.

The donation was made possible by proceeds from the 2022 Four Winds Invitational, which was held from August 12 through 14 at the South Bend Country Club.

Beacon Children's Hospital will use the donation for a Quad Cab NICU Transport, which will safely move premature infants and Beacon's Specialty Care Team.

"We would like to thank the Pokagon Band, its Four Winds Casinos, and all of the donors from the community for their continued generous support over the years," said Jen Tonkovich, Director of Women and Children's Services for Beacon Health System. "Receiving the proceeds from the Four Winds Invitational has not only helped us acquire life-saving equipment but also plan for the future and identify ways we can better serve patients and families."
