The Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority is providing approximately 1.9 million dollars to more than 900 organizations across the province as part of their charitable gaming grant program.
Three organizations will receive funding in Creighton including the Creighton Community Center 2634 dollars, Creighton Lodge Trust 9940 dollars and the Flin Flon Motorcyclist Association 2112 dollars. The Denare Beach Recreation Board will receive 151 dollars.
The quarterly grants are based on a percentage of net proceeds raised through licenced charitable gaming activities such as bingos, raffles and break open tickets. Charitable gaming reports submitted by groups are used by the Authority to automatically calculate grant amounts.
