Lake City Casinos, through its corporate giving and engagement program GatewayGIVES, today announced the completion of the one year pledge to raise $10,000 for the North Okanagan Neurological Association`s Build The Clubhouse Project.

“The dedication of NONA to children and youth with special needs, their families in Vernon and throughout the North Okanagan is amazing. The new facility will allow them to offer greater assistance and make a substantial difference in the lives of their clients,” said Ryan Doherty, General Manager of Lake City Casinos in Vernon.

GatewayGIVES committed $10,000 to the Build the Clubhouse Project in 2016 and are happy to announce we’ve exceeded that goal – donating the final cheque amount of $12,000. Money was raised through out 2016 from various fundraisers put on by Lake City Casino and Match Public House and Eatery.

"On behalf of NONA I would like to say how appreciative we are for the wonderful support from Lake City Casino for the Build The Clubhouse Campaign. Lake City Casino has helped to create a legacy where children and youth learn skills to last a lifetime. Thank you for making a difference!" - Linda Graves, NONA Board President

Last year, Lake City Casino gave more than $50,000 in monetary and in-kind donations to charitable and community organizations throughout Vernon and the Okanagan. From participation in the One Bag Challenge food drive, riding the Big Bike for the Heart and Stroke Foundation to sponsoring the Vernon Winter Carnival, their dedication to the community is undeniable.

Over the years, the number of children NONA serves has increased from a few dozen per year to well over 700. They have now outgrown their existing space. The Build the Clubhouse Project was formed to help build a new $1.6 Million facility to provide comprehensive services for children and youth with a variety of special needs. The Campaign officially kicked off on February 29, 2016 with a goal of having the new building open in early 2017.
