OLG Community Recognition Program Cheque Presentation

Posted on Tuesday November 07, 2023

Woodstock – Representatives from the City of Woodstock, South Gate Centre and OLG were on hand Tuesday, November 7 at South Gate Centre to recognize the annual contributions the City of Woodstock receives from OLG as a casino gaming host community.

“We are fortunate to have such an active partnership with OLG. Their funding has far reaching benefits across the city,” said Mayor Jerry Acchione. “Not only do the monies we receive go towards capital projects and special events, but it also allows residents to access programs at a reduced cost through our fee assistance program and helps non-profit organizations deliver services through our community grants program.”

OLG presented the City with a cheque for $1,569,496 recognizing contributions from April 2022 through March 2023. Following the cheque presentation, representatives of South Gate Centre offered tours and highlighted the many programs they offer for older adults.

“OLG is proud to be a vital part of the City of Woodstock”, said Kathleen Devine, OLG’s Senior Municipal Relations Manager. “Each and every year, 100 per cent of OLG profits are reinvested in Ontario to support provincial priorities. From critical infrastructure to important local programs, to community festivals, OLG’s profits are hard at work in the City of Woodstock and all across our province to build stronger communities. Today, we are seeing firsthand how a share of the gaming revenue from Gateway Casinos Woodstock is contributing to the region. When you play at an Ontario casino, you play for Ontario.”

The City of Woodstock would like to thank OLG for their continued support.
