Horseshoe Indianapolis donates kiosk fees to SCUFFY
SHELBYVILLE, Ind. (Friday, Dec. 1, 2023) — Guests of Horseshoe Indianapolis utilize cash kiosks when closing out their winnings on the casino floor. On the kiosks is an option to donate any winnings to charity. As a result, those donated winnings are accumulated once per quarter and are gifted back to a charitable organization. A total of $13,564.88 was recently collected from the donation option on the NRT Technology terminals with the funds earmarked to Shelby County United Fund for You (SCUFFY).
“Horseshoe Indianapolis has already completed their 2023 pledge to our annual drive, so this money will kickstart the 2024 drive,” said Alecia Gross, Executive Director of SCUFFY. “Our 13 agencies of SCUFFY take care of our community, from newborns to seniors. This donation will go for the basic necessities of these organizations.”
The 2024 campaign for SCUFFY kicks off the first Wednesday of March each year. The next fundraising campaign begins March 6, 2024, and will conclude the first Wednesday of May, which falls on May 1 in 2024. Next year’s goal is $910,000, which is very achievable thanks to the efforts of area businesses, who nearly reached that amount in 2023.
“Our goal last season was $795,000 and we blew way over that,” added Gross. “Our actual amount was $905,000, so we are excited for the 2024 campaign.”
Horseshoe Indianapolis is a major contributor to the annual fundraising campaign for SCUFFY. In addition to a monetary donation to the cause, other activities take place during the campaign, including team member donations and fundraisers on property. Horseshoe Indianapolis is also represented on the board by Mike Evans, longtime Shelbyville resident and a community minded team member.
“This additional donation to SCUFFY is a great way to kick off next year’s campaign,” added Trent McIntosh, Senior Vice President and General Manager. “SCUFFY represents so many viable organizations in our community, and we are delighted to be a good corporate partner in the annual fundraising efforts.”
