Casino donates to YMCA project

Jan 24, 2018

The fundraising efforts for the new YMCA in Washington received a huge boost when the Riverside Casino & Golf Resort pledged to donate $500,000 over five years to the Washington County YMCA. “As one of the oldest YMCA buildings in the nation, we are honored to give back to this community organization, especially to help a community that has been so supportive of us throughout the years,” said Dan Kehl, CEO of Riverside Casino & Golf Resort. This is the largest donation of its kind that has been given by the Riverside Casino & Golf Resort board to a local organization. “This pledge shows tremendous support for the YMCA building project from the Riverside Casino board of directors and we are honored to receive this generous gift,” said Amy Schulte, Interim CEO of the YMCA of Washington County.

“The vision and leadership of the board is strong and we are happy to be a part of it, not only for what the YMCA does for the families of Washington County but nationwide. All communities face challenges, and this is a great opportunity to offer our support,” said Dan Kehl, CEO of Riverside Casino & Golf Resort. “We are very excited about the impact that this gift has on our fundraising and we hope that it will encourage others in the community to support this project as well. We need to complete this portion of the fundraising so we can begin focusing on Phase 2 – a 6-lane pool for the community” said Amy Schulte, Interim CEO of the YMCA.
