Delaware North’s regional casino gaming destinations across the United States raising funds for the USO
Global hospitality company launches campaign at 10 gaming locations, building on national fundraising partnership with USO at airport restaurants
BUFFALO, N.Y. (July 1, 2019) – Delaware North, a leading global hospitality company, today (July 1) launched a fundraising campaign with the United Service Organizations (USO) at 10 of the company’s casino gaming destinations across the United States.
The campaign is part of a national fundraising partnership Delaware North began with the USO at its more than 200 airport restaurant locations last year, which raised more than $269,000 for the organization.
“The USO has a very important mission to help our country’s servicemen and servicewomen, so we are proud to expand Delaware North’s involvement with this campaign at our gaming locations,” said Brian Hansberry, president of Delaware North’s gaming division. “We know that our guests will recognize all the work the USO does for military members and their families and join us with their generous support.”
The campaign will entail a call for donations through two methods at Delaware North’s gaming locations, with all proceeds going to benefit the USO and its mission. While making purchases at restaurants, other food and beverage outlets and hotels at the gaming locations, guests can “round up” to the nearest dollar amount – with the extra funds going to the USO. Guests can also donate at all points of sale in $1, $3 or $5 increments.

The fundraising efforts will begin July 1 and continue until the end of the year at the following gaming locations: Daytona Beach Racing & Card Club (Daytona Beach, Fla.); Finger Lakes Gaming & Racetrack (Farmington, N.Y.); Hamburg Gaming (Hamburg, N.Y.); Jake’s 58 Casino Hotel (Islandia, N.Y.); Jumer’s Casino & Hotel (Rock Island, Ill.); Mardi Gras Casino & Resort (Nitro, W.Va.); Miami Valley Gaming (Lebanon, Ohio); Orange City Racing & Card Club (Orange City, Fla.); Southland Casino Racing (West Memphis, Ark.); and Wheeling Island Hotel-Casino-Racetrack (Wheeling, W.Va.).
The USO strengthens America's military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country, throughout their service to the nation. At hundreds of locations worldwide, we are united in our commitment to connect our service members and their families through countless acts of caring, comfort, and support. The USO is a private, non-profit organization, not a government agency. Our programs, services and entertainment tours are made possible by the American people, support of our corporate partners and the dedication of our volunteers and staff.
