During the months of September and October, donations from guests raised $4,822 to aid hurricane relief efforts. The casino management pledged to match those donations, and further contributions by hotel employees raised an additional $3,980.

The Red Cross received a check from the hotel for nearly $4,800, while the Salvation Army accepted a donation of almost $4,000. The Apache Casino Hotel's manager George Bozier added that the hotel would continue to assist in further relief efforts in Texas, Florida and he Caribbean.
