Raving’s Amy Hergenrother and partners Daniel Wood, Engagex, and Mark Astone, Catalyst, were proud to support the 2018 AIGA (Arizona Indian Gaming Association) Expo, October 28 – 30, 2018, at Desert Diamond Casino and Entertainment in Tucson, AZ, an enterprise of the Tohono O’Odham Nation. Amy and Daniel also participated in the Desert Classic Golf Tournament held at Sewailo Golf Club at Casino Del Sol. This astounding course was designed by Notah Begay III, founder of Raving’s charity partner, the NB3 Foundation.
Amy shared, “Judy Ferreira, AIGA Executive Director, and her team did a fantastic job gathering Tribal Leaders who are making an impact on all Tribes in Arizona. I especially enjoyed the Tribal Leaders Forum where Council Member Delia Carlyle (Ak-Chin Indian Community), Council Member Arnold Beach (White Mountain Apache Tribe), Vice Chairman Larry Jackson (Yavapai Apache Nation), and Chairman Edward Manuel (Tohono O’Odham Nation) shared their diverse experience, wisdom and advice with the upcoming leaders. They spoke of setting goals, reflecting on Elders and Grandparents who influenced their lives, remembering the common welfare, and developing skills that will carry them, and their communities, a lifetime.”
Amy and Mark interacted with a full room during their session “Marketing – The Roadmap to Creating an Excellent Gaming Operation.” This panel addressed how Tribal gaming enterprises nationwide offer their guests many amenities to add to their gaming experience with shopping venues, sporting venues, family entertainment centers, and so much more. Amy shared, “The panel discussion was great fun and we enjoyed sharing our skills and experiences with a very engaged group of AIGA attendees.”
