As part of Delaware North’s ongoing “Game Changer” campaign in its gaming division, Southland Casino Racing recently presented a local nonprofit organization a check for $47,604. The organization, Families in Transition (FIT), supports the local community in West Memphis, Ark., by providing shelter, safety and services to victims of domestic violence, human trafficking, and other forms of abuse.
“We have a deep appreciation for the work that Families in Transition does to help our community,” said David Wolf, president and general manager of Southland Casino Racing. “And to take it a step further – it’s wonderful to know that we and our patrons are a part of something even larger, as patrons of other gaming venues within our company’s U.S. portfolio are helping those in need within their respective communities.”
Guests at Southland participated in the fundraising drive by dropping off and gifting the change that’s left on a slot voucher or racing ticket at wishing wells, located throughout the casino floor.
Delaware North’s “Game Changer” initiative launched last year across the United States, with the goal of making a positive change in those local communities. All proceeds of the campaign are provided to local organizations focused on creating positive community impact within each participating location.
Southland launched its next fundraising effort to benefit The Boys & Girls Clubs of Crittenden County on March 1.
