KidSport received a cheque for $5,000 from Cascades Casino Kamloops as part of 'GatewayGIVES’ 25 Days of Giving in celebration of Gateway’s 25th anniversary in the business of entertainment!
“Getting an email informing us that we were chosen as the charity of choice for Cascades Casino Kamloops in celebration of their 25 year anniversary was an amazing surprise to our local Chapter of KidSport! We live in such a great community and I continue to be amazed and so grateful to have such wonderful corporate support. This donation will go a long way directly assisting more local kids access sport. Thank you for helping us #SoAllKidsCanPlay,” said Scott Andruschak, Chairperson for KidSport.
Leona Sperling, Slot Attendant at Cascades Casino, who nominated the organization, said that she nominated KidSport because she had personally been a recipient of assistance from the organization, “KidSport were gracious enough to pay the full registration. Without them I would not have been able to give my two boys a chance at playing hockey”, she went on to say that she would love to give back to the organization so that it can continue to support local families in the same way that they supported hers.
Thank you Cascades Casino for the generous donation!
