CELEBRATING 25 YEARS OF GIVING - NOW THROUGH DECEMBER 13
Share Your Heart!
Heart of Canal Street is Potawatomi Hotel & Casino’s signature community program. This year marks its 25th anniversary. Half of each $3 or $7 Canal Street Bingo game purchased goes to the Heart of Canal Street fund, which totaled more than $1.1 million last year and provided funding to children’s charities in southeastern Wisconsin. Paxton Andrews Foundation is in the running to be a 2018 charity. Help give the gift of a promising future by playing now through Dec. 13. Visit paysbig.com/heart.
Our annual Gold Gala serves as our largest fundraiser of the year. This elegant evening of food, drink, and celebration of life is a beautiful way to honor Paxton’s Legacy, remember our sweet boy and recognize all of the children and families who continue to fight childhood cancer. Learn more about this year’s Gala, or become a sponsor.

PAST EVENT: Gamerosity - Wisconsin GameOn Day 2018 - Saturday, August 4th 2018
Gamerosity’s GameOn Day for childhood cancer awareness will be held on Saturday, August 4th from 1:00 – 5:00 PM. The event will take place at Marquette University, in the Central Mall. This is a great organization that helps children deal with long days of treatment by providing hero packages. These hero packages include iPads and a variety of games; helping kids stay connected to friends and family throughout the course of treatment.
Join PAX at their event, or check out their Facebook page.
PAST EVENT: PAX FEST
This 212% kid-centered event is held at a unique family-friendly location each year. Because there’s no sweeter way to spread PaxLove than through children running wild and free, we have activities such as mini-golf, tie dye, family entertainers, face painting, carnival games, cookie decorating and more. All proceeds from PaxFest directly support our brave, little warriors.
HOST YOUR OWN EVENT
We welcome all PaxLovers to host an event in support of the Paxton Andrews Foundation! Over the years we’ve been blessed by many creative and encouraging fundraisers, many of which have been organized by other kids. From lemonade stands and hot dog sales, to rummage sales and birthday parties, we love to see the creativity long-standing and new PaxLovers bring our way.
Some of our additional favorites include:
- Corporate companies allowing extra vacation time in exchange for donations to the Foundation.
- Businesses allowing employees to pay for a casual Friday, with donations going to the Foundation.
- School groups that nominate the Foundation to be the recipient of their charity fundraiser.
