Horseshoe Indianapolis will distribute $32,815.10 to the Especially Kidz organization–which focuses on the care of physically challenged kids and young adults with 24-hour skilled nursing care–via funds from a special option utilized by guests on the casino floor, the track announced in a press release Monday.
The NRT Technology kiosks provide an option for guests, when cashing out, to earmark any winnings to charity and Especially Kids was included as one of the recipients for the charitable giving option in 2023. A group of Horseshoe Indianapolis team members stopped by Especially Kidz to deliver the check from the proceeds Friday, Dec. 1. They were joined by several members of the care giving staff in receipt of the donation.
“To be able to contribute these funds donated by our guests to such a worthwhile organization is a tremendous opportunity for Horseshoe Indianapolis,” said Trent McIntosh, Senior Vice President and General Manager. “Especially Kidz is managed by a group of extremely dedicated workers who provide such an important service to our community. We are glad we can be a small part of delivering much-needed support to their organization.”
