Buffet proceeds to benefit New York Hurricane Sandy victims

Vernon Downs Casino and Hotel is announcing that they will donate all proceeds from Champions Buffet at their property in aid of victims of Hurricane Sandy. Between Sunday, November 11 and Sunday, November 18, Vernon Downs, in conjunction with Tioga Downs Casino, hopes to raise $100,000 to give to the American Red Cross.

During that week, patrons who donate $5 Sunday through Thursday, and those who donate $10 on Friday and Saturday, will receive a FREE buffet. Patrons are also encouraged to donate additional funds above $5 and $10, as Chairman of American Racing and Entertainment Jeff Gural will generously match the additional donations up to $50 per person.

According to Mr. Gural, "I think everyone here knows how devastating floods can be and we hope to do our share to help our neighbors along the shore and also give our customers a bargain as well."

The Veterans Day Program and Buffet Special previously scheduled for November 12 at Vernon Downs will be rescheduled to November 26.
