Lake City Casinos supports Cops For Kids

Lake City Casinos has made a contribution of $15,000 to the 2012 Cops For Kids Ride fundraising campaign.

Over the past 11 years, Lake City Casinos has donated more than $100,000 to the children’s charity.

The signature fundraising event for Cops For Kids is a 10-day cycling journey from Kelowna that takes the team of 25 RCMP riders across the southeastern portion of B.C. The fundraising efforts raise money and awareness for children in medical, physical or traumatic crisis.

“The Cops for Kids ride has become one of the most notable fundraising events in our community each year,” said Jerry Pokorny, general manager of Lake City Casinos.

“It’s our honour to be a part of the great work they do for children in the community.”
