Each year, team members at Indiana Grand Racing & Casino participate in numerous activities to raise funds for Shelby County United Fund For You (SCUFFY). With disruptions to business and restrictions in place due to Covid-19, many of the events were not held and have affected the overall fundraising efforts for SCUFFY. Indiana Grand wanted to do something to bridge the gap and made a $20,000 donation to SCUFFY Tuesday, Aug. 11.
“This campaign season has been a roller coaster,” said Alecia Gross, executive director of SCUFFY. “The community has been fabulous to step up and support us. This donation helps us reach our goal. We are so very appreciative of this donation from Indiana Grand.”
Earlier this year, team members at Indiana Grand participated in a few activities to raise funds for SCUFFY. In all, more than $14,000 was raised for the organization. Therefore, a total of $34,000 has now been donated to SCUFFY’S efforts in 2020.
“It’s been an unprecedented year for everyone and a lot of not for profits have been really affected,” said Deannette Pryor, director of human resources and SCUFFY board member. “SCUFFY is so important for Shelby County and they provide needed assistance for a lot of organizations. Being able to add funding into their drive this year is a great way for us to give back to the local community.”
