RIVERS CASINO PHILADELPHIA STEPS UP TO THE PLATE FOR POLICE ATHLETIC LEAGUE

Casino’s contribution supports PAL Night at the Phillies

PHILADELPHIA — July 16, 2019 — Rivers Casino Philadelphia celebrated the 41st Annual PAL Night at the Phillies on Monday, July 15, at Citizens Bank Park. The event helped raise more than $30,000 for the Police Athletic League (PAL) of Philadelphia to support youth development centers throughout the city.

PAL sponsors and Philadelphia media members teamed up for a friendly softball game prior to the Phillies home game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The night also featured several check presentations, including Rivers Casino Philadelphia’s donation to support PAL’s educational, athletic and cultural programs.

“Rivers is honored to support PAL’s mission of ‘Cops Helping Kids,’” said Emily Doñes, community relations manager of Rivers Casino Philadelphia. “Building a strong relationship between Philadelphia police officers and the children they protect and mentor is critical to the city’s future success.”

PAL serves 18,000 children at 20 centers across Philadelphia.
