Cherokee Casino West Siloam Springs’ costume contest to benefit area food banks
WEST SILOAM SPRINGS, Okla. – At Cherokee Casino West Siloam Springs there are no tricks when it comes to this year’s Halloween bash, just treats for Halloween revelers and local citizens in need.
In an effort to assist area food banks as the holidays approach, casino officials are asking guests to bring a canned food item to join in the fun on Halloween at 7 p.m. when the casino hosts a party with a live DJ, snacks and a costume contest. Cash prizes will be awarded for the top three costumes when judging begins at 9 p.m., with first place collecting $1,000 and second and third places earning $500 and $250, respectively. Due to security restrictions, masks and weapons are not permitted inside the casino. Along with a canned food, guests must also have a Star Rewards card to enter the party.
“This party and costume contest is a great way to have some fun, but also make a positive impact by providing food to those in need,” said David Stewart, CEO of Cherokee Nation Entertainment, which operates Cherokee Casinos and Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa.
As part of the night’s festivities, Los Straightjackets will not only be dressed for the occasion, but will provide the perfect entertainment for the evening with its mixture of surf rock and rockabilly sound. The Nashville-based band takes to the Seven stage at 10 p.m.
With 11 studio albums released to date as well as numerous appearances on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Los Straightjackets have entertained audiences for more than 15 years, including a 2004 performance in front of 70,000 fans in Mexico City – a performance requested by the Mexican government and broadcasted nationally.
