CASINO FUNDS SUPPORT CHILDREN AND YOUTH PROGRAMS IN HUMBOLDT

Municipal Affairs, Culture and Housing Minister Carol Teichrob

announced today that Humboldt community groups have received $10,000

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 Quill Plains Regional Recreation Association, in partnership with

the Central Plains and Living Sky Health District, and the Heart and

Stroke Foundation, received $5,000 toward the Motivating Youth Program

which offers positive sport and recreation opportunities for children

and youth, to help them develop and make healthy lifestyle choices.



The Humboldt Family Tenant Association in partnership with Big

Brothers/Big Sisters of Humboldt, received $5,000 to help develop a

program which will enable children and youth at risk to attend summer

camp and participate in other summer recreation and sport activities.



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.
