Casino to Host 2nd Annual Charity Golf Tournament

Erie, PA — Officials at Presque Isle Downs & Casino announced today that the Second Annual Charity Golf Tournament is scheduled for Wednesday, June 18th, 2014.

The golf tournament was established as a way to give back to the community. The Erie Community Foundation is one of the largest in the country and serves the Erie County Area through grants to various non-profits.

All monies donated are invested and the interest is then used to fund these local grants. Last year’s event raised $15,000 for The United Way’s Imagination Library campaign.

The event will take place at Culbertson Hills Golf Course in Edinboro, PA.

A luncheon will be hosted at 12pm followed by a 1pm Shotgun start. The Awards Ceremony will take place at 6pm.

Businesses or individuals can register or inquire about sponsorship opportunities by calling 814-464-5410 or 814-464-5409. Individual golfers are $125.

“Community involvement is our top priority and this is just one way that we can help our neighbors in need. We receive many financial requests from non-profit organizations throughout the year and we wanted to find a way to provide more monies for our community. By establishing a fund with The Erie Community Foundation we will be able to provide greater assistance to help these charities reach their financial goals,” stated Jeff Favre, Vice President and General Manager of Presque Isle Downs & Casino.

If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, help is available.
