CASINO FUNDS SUPPORT CHILDREN IN OXBOW AND AREA

Municipal Affairs, Culture and Housing Minister Carol Teichrob today

announced that the Moose Mountain Regional Recreation Association has

received $3,500 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 Moose Mountain Regional Association, Zone 1 South East Sports

Council and community recreation boards have partnered to provide a

mobile playground program for children aged five - 12. This program

offers arts, crafts, storytelling, field trips and sports to children

in communities that do not have organized recreational programming.



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.
