programs that support children, youth and families."

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.
