Pokagon Band makes big donation to Memorial Children's Hospital

Posted:

Memorial Children's Hospital received a big check today.

They were presented with a donation of $56,500 to go towards purchasing a neonatal incubator transport unit for the helicopter program.

The funds were raised in the 2013 Four Winds Invitational hosted by the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians and they say there's no where else they would want the money to go.

"Number one, you're helping young people, you're helping families. Number two, what a lot of people need to continue to recognize is this is home for the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians. We have a number of citizens who live here. So it's not like we're helping out somebody else, we're actually helping ourselves by helping the community," says Pokagon Band chairman Matthew Wesaw.

The Pokagon Band also announced they will once again be the title sponsor next year's Four Winds Invitational.
