Gateway Casinos & Entertainment Celebrates 25th Anniversary with 25 Days of Giving
October 17, 2017 – Clinton, ON – The Clinton Kinsmen Club today received a cheque for $5,000 from Gateway Casinos Clinton as part of GatewayGIVES’ 25 Days of Giving in celebration of Gateway’s 25th anniversary in the business of entertainment.
GatewayGIVES is the corporate giving and community engagement program of Gateway Casinos. The 25 Days of Giving campaign will contribute $5,000 to a worthy local charity selected by employees, in each of the communities where Gateway operates. At the end of the October campaign, GatewayGIVES will have donated a total of $125,000 to the deserving, employee-selected, charities across Canada.
Gateway has dedicated the month of October to celebrate its silver anniversary with customers, communities and employees. As part of the festivities they launched the 25 Days of Giving campaign through GatewayGIVES and are letting their employees select the charity of their choice in the communities where they live and work. The Clinton Kinsmen Club was selected in recognition of its ongoing fund raising efforts in the Clinton community where they have been active for more than 60 years. The Kinsmen have raised funds for everything from the town’s community swimming pool and local parks to supporting the purchase of a new fire truck for the municipality. They sponsor the Boy Scouts but were also a critical contributor to the purchase of a CT Scanner for the Alexander Marine and General Hospital in Goderich and have been a staunch supporter of the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation since 1985.
Greg McCullough, President of the Clinton Kinsmen expressed delight at learning of the Gateway donation. “On behalf of the Clinton Kinsmen Club I would like to thank GatewayGIVES and the employees of Gateway Casinos Clinton for their generous donation. We are proud to be sponsors of and participants in a number of events in our local area and donations like this allow us to continue to be able to meet our goal of serving the community’s greatest needs.”
