Released on March 1, 2016

The Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA) is providing approximately $1.6 million to more than 700 groups and organizations in the province licensed to conduct charitable gaming.

“The charitable gaming grant program rewards the work of groups and organizations who give their time to raise money for their community through charitable gaming,” Minister responsible for SLGA Don McMorris said.  “The dollars they raise support many worthwhile causes and our government is pleased to provide the extra support through these grants.”

Among the grants provided by SLGA this quarter: Prince Albert and surrounding area received $105,381; Moose Jaw and surrounding area received $95,996; Yorkton and surrounding area received $70,209; Swift Current and surrounding area received $53,860 and Estevan and surrounding area received $31,235.

A grant equal to 25 per cent of net proceeds raised through licensed charitable gaming (bingo, raffles, breakopen ticket sales, Texas Hold ‘em poker and Monte Carlo events) is paid quarterly to groups and organizations that conduct these events.

SLGA calculates grant payments when groups and organizations submit their charitable gaming reports.
