15 local charities got a big boost on Tuesday from ISIS Hospitality.
The company, which operates Sliders, Watiki Water Park, and two adjoining hotels donated all of the proceeds after operating expenses on February 8th. The event raised more than $40,000.
Some of this year's recipients include Soccer Rapid City, Rapid City BMX Fund, Box Elder BMX Raceway, Front Porch Coalition, Arete Foundation in memory of Kevin Morsching, St. Thomas More's Scott Grimsrud Scholarship, Northern Hills Alliance for Children, Destination Rapid City, Ranchers Relief Fund, Corner Stone Rescue Mission, Rapid City Club for Boys, and Storybook Island.
Mark Arceneaux, CEO of ISIS Hospitality, said it's important to give back to the community.
"Giving back for us is extremely important because our company and the 500 employees that we employ across the company depends on the support of our community to provide the jobs and the economic impact that is has brought to our community, so it's important for us to give back, as responsible corporate community members," Arceneaux said.
ISIS Hospitality has raised more than $250,000 for causes in the Black Hills area since 2009.
