CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Just three days after its grand opening, Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati made a large donation to four non-profits in the area.

The funds for the donations came from the Casino's "dry run" on February 27 where 1,700 new team members successfully demonstrated their readiness to both the public and the Ohio Casino Control Commission (OCCC). Between the hours of 3-11 p.m., more than 6,200 family members, friends and business partners attended the dry run, totaling up $152,595 in gross gaming proceeds.

In a breakfast presentation held on Thursday, Horseshoe Cincinnati Sr. Vice President and General Manager Kevin Kline presented checks in the amount of $40K to the four non-profits selected by the property. Those organizations include ArtsWave, The Cincinnati-Hamilton County Community Action Agency, Freestore Foodbank's Cincinnati Cooks and Talbert House. In addition to the $40K, the casino voluntarily donated an additional #1,850 of non-gaming proceeds from the dry run to each organization.

"I am incredibly proud of the Horseshoe Cincinnati team," said Kline. "It was a true win-win. Our team provided an outstanding customer experience and the proceeds will greatly benefit these local charities."
