Registration is now open for Casino Regina’s Charity Championship – an exciting fundraising event that will see 40 teams competing for a cut of a $20,000 prize pool for a charity of their choice.
The event celebrates Casino Regina’s 20th anniversary and two decades of commitment by SaskGaming to communities across Saskatchewan.
“Over the past 20 years, SaskGaming has contributed more than half a billion dollars to the province and millions more to events, scholarships and charities through their community relations program,” Minister responsible for SaskGaming Nancy Heppner said. “Marking this milestone with a charity event was a natural fit, and another great example of SaskGaming and Casino Regina’s commitment to giving back.”
Charity Championship teams will fundraise for their charity of choice before challenging each other in a giant inflatable obstacle course in the Casino Regina parking lot on August 19. All funds raised by teams will go directly to their charity, with SaskGaming providing the $20,000 prize pool and all additional team prizes.
“Charity Championship is our chance to bring people together in the spirit of giving, camaraderie and competition to help build better communities for the people of Saskatchewan,” SaskGaming President and CEO Susan Flett said. “We want to thank our guests for their continued patronage over the last 20 years and invite them to help us celebrate our anniversary by rallying for their favourite charities.”
