$100,000 pledge to ASU Mid-South highlights recent charitable efforts by Southland Park Gaming & Racing

Southland Park Gaming & Racing, owned and operated by Delaware North in West Memphis, Ark., recently presented Arkansas State University (ASU) Mid-South with $100,000 in support of the Jeremy M. Jacobs Hospitality Program.

The donation is the seventh of 10 annual payments to the school, which named its hospitality building in honor of Delaware North’s chairman.

“Their generosity continues to help our students tremendously,” Debra West, chancellor of ASU Mid-South, said of Southland Park and Delaware North. “And we are certainly very appreciative of everything Delaware North and Southland Park have done to ensure a brighter future for our region.”

Apart from the pledge to ASU Mid-South, Southland Park Gaming & Racing hosted a charity dinner for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Memphis and sponsored a Relay for Life event.

The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Memphis is a group that provides housing and support to families whose children suffer from cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. Meanwhile, the Relay for Life is a 24-hour event, during which a team walks around a designated track, rotating out team members so that there is never a moment where a team member is not on the track. As the presenting sponsor, Southland Park provided $5,000 — on top of the $11,582 worth of donations collected at the event’s onsite tent.
