Imagination Library Wins Big at Presque Isle Downs & Casino

Erie, PA — A check was presented on behalf of Presque Isle Downs & Casino for $15,000 to the Dolly Parton Imagination Library.

These funds were raised during the 1st Annual Charity Golf Tournament which was held at Culbertson Hills in Edinboro, PA.  The golf tournament was established as a way to give back to the community.

“Presque Isle Downs & Casino established a fund with The Erie Community Foundation to provide greater assistance to help charities reach their financial goals. After months of research, we felt that the Dolly Parton Imagination Library matched the goals that we were looking for which is to remain dedicated to helping the children in our area,” stated Mike Tamburelli, Vice President and General Manager of Presque Isle Downs & Casino.

“On behalf of the thousands of children who are benefiting from these books, we are extremely grateful for the commitment of Presque Isle Downs & Casino.  Together, we will rewrite the story of our community,” said RJ Zonna, United Way of Erie County’s Senior Vice President.


The 2nd Annual Charity Golf Event will be held on Wednesday, June 18, 2014.
