SARATOGA SPRINGS, New York (October 15, 2012) – In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Saratoga Casino and Raceway created a promotion to reward not only guests, but The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, as well.
The promotion, titled "Play for Pink" was held from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m on October 12. Each hour, three winners’ names were drawn and those guests selected a pink ribbon from the Play for Pink board. Each ribbon was worth $100 up to $250 in Free Slot Play, but only one was worth $2,500.
Karen Lancaster, of Poughkeepsie, selected that ribbon during the 4 p.m. drawings. She received the $2,500 cash and Saratoga Casino and Raceway also made a $2,500 donation in her name to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Breast Cancer Research is particularly important to Lancaster. "My grandmother, mother and sister are all breast cancer survivors," she said. The casino is happy that the donation will be made in the name of someone who has been directly affected and can greatly appreciate the cause.
This is the first time the casino has offered the "Play for Pink" promotion and donation.
