More than $30,000 raised for Hurricane Matthew relief
On Friday, October 14 through Sunday, Oct. 16, Centaur Gaming hosted a Hurricane Matthew fundraising campaign at its two racing and gaming properties that collectively raised more than $15,000 in guest donations. In addition to the money raised, Centaur Gaming announced a donation match and doubled the funds to a grand total of $30,800, which will be sent directly to American Red Cross benefiting domestic Hurricane Matthew relief.
Over the campaign weekend, Hoosier Park Racing & Casino in Anderson, Ind. and Indiana Grand Racing & Casino in Shelbyville, Ind. gave all guests who donated a minimum of $10 to American Red Cross $10 in free slot play as a thank you for their contribution.
“We’re truly appreciative of our guests who took the time this weekend to visit Hoosier Park and Indiana Grand and make a donation to American Red Cross,” said Centaur Gaming’s Chairman and CEO Rod Ratcliff. “It’s our hope that this donation will play a part in rebuilding and reshaping the communities and the lives that were devastated by Hurricane Matthew.”
Additionally, Centaur Gaming will continue to encourage its 2,000 team members statewide to support Hurricane Matthew disaster relief efforts directly through American Red Cross.
“Our work continues and is possible, thanks to the support of Centaur Gaming – who understands that we all hold the power to support our neighbors in times of need,” said an American Red Cross spokesperson. “It is moments like this the community relies on the Red Cross, and the Red Cross is appreciative for this generous donation.”
