CASINO FUNDS SUPPORT CHILDREN AND YOUTH PROGRAMS IN ROCKGLEN AND SHAUNAVON

Municipal Affairs, Culture and Housing Minister Carol Teichrob

announced today that community groups in Rockglen and Shaunavon have

received $8,800 in casino profits through the Associated Entities

Fund.



"The province established the Associated Entities Fund to distribute a

portion of casino profits for the benefit of Saskatchewan people,"

Teichrob said. "Since the beginning of 1997 more than $4.5 million in

casino profits have been distributed throughout Saskatchewan for

programs that support children, youth and families."



The Rockglen Community Initiatives for Youth, in partnership with the

Town of Rockglen, received $4,000 toward summer programs for children

and youth in a supervised environment where they can learn social and

other life skills as well as participate in recreational activities.



The Shaunavon Recreation Board, in partnership with the Shaunavon

Community Action Team, received $4,800 toward Summer Active 99

providing recreational activities for children and youth ages eight to

18.



The Associated Entities Fund receives a portion of the profits from

Casino Regina, the Gold Eagle Casino in North Battleford, the Northern

Lights Casino in Prince Albert and the Painted Hand Casino in Yorkton.
