United Way thanks Tioga Downs owner for big donation

Posted: Updated:

NICHOLS (WBNG) -- The United Way of Tioga County on Thursday thanked Tioga Downs owner Jeff Gural and his wife for their generosity and support of the organization. 

The Tioga United Way’s Dancing United with the Starz fundraiser took place at Tioga Downs last December. With a $35,000 contribution from the Gurals, the United Way says the event brought in more than $100,000.

“This singular donation is being distributed across all of our 34 wonderful agencies,” Executive Director Carolyn Palladino said in a news release. “Some will use it toward specific needs such as new freezers at our food pantries, appliances in our shelters, and books for our children. While others will use it toward updating electrical systems, staff & volunteer training, as well as new programming.”
