“Charitable gaming grants continue to enhance the fundraising efforts of groups and organizations that are making a difference in communities across our province,” Minister responsible for SLGA Gene Makowsky said.  “As a government, we’re pleased to provide dollars that help minor sports programs, service clubs, health care foundations and many other worthwhile volunteer-based activities.”

Among the grants provided by SLGA this quarter: North Battleford and surrounding area received $146,624; Yorkton and surrounding area: $110,250; Humboldt and surrounding area: $109,180; Moose Jaw and surrounding area: $86,422; and Weyburn/Estevan and surrounding area: $59,657.
