WHEELING, W.Va. (WTRF) The latest donation from Wheeling Island Hotel Casino Racetrack’s Game Changer program has gone to Driving For A Cure.
That golf scramble, held by the Ohio Valley Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation, on Monday and received $4949.00. That was the amount collected throughout October at the hotel casino racetrack through its Game Changer initiative.
“They put on a phenomenal event every year, Driving Fore A Cure Golf Scramble. And our proceeds from our Game Changer program is going to them for the month of October. Helps us provide products to breast cancer patients throughout the tri-state region, providing them with things that their insurance won’t cover–camisoles, we have books, we provide lunches and this year with the support from Wheeling Island, we were able to purchase gas cards.”– Scott Blass – Co-founder, Ohio Valley Breast Cancer Awareness Inc.
Game Changer collects money in two ways.
It allows patrons to donate their uncashed racing or casino vouchers in on-site donation boxes.
And it allows employees to donate $5 to be able to dress casually in jeans and t-shirts on Fridays.
Now in November, the Game Changer program is collecting for the Salvation Army.
