Saratoga Casino Hotel Donates $15,000 to Ronald McDonald House

SARATOGA SPRINGS – On Wednesday, Oct. 4, Saratoga Casino Hotel presented a $15,000 donation to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Capital Region. Funds for the donation were raised at the casino’s All-Star Sports Festival on Sept. 23.

The All-Star Sports Festival brought together over a dozen former athletes from the MLB, NFL and horse racing. Attendees included Super Bowl champion Lawrence Taylor, World Series champion Wade Boggs and Triple Crown-winning jockey Steve Cauthen. The athletes participated in a full day of activities including autograph signings, a celebrity softball game and a home run derby featuring Jose Canseco.

A portion of all tickets sold to the event, as well as the proceeds raised from Canseco’s home run derby, were donated to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Capital Region. The organization offers families of critically ill children comfort and support during times of hardship.
