“Our annual Make A Difference event is something we look forward to every year,” said Skip Carlson, Vice President of External Affairs at Saratoga Casino Hotel. “We have some amazing organizations in the Capital District that give back in so many ways to make our community stronger. It seems fitting that on Giving Tuesday, we can give back to them so they can continue to make a difference in the lives of so many every day.”
Franklin Community Center was honored to be among one of the twelve organizations to receive a $10,000 donation. Over the last 19 years, Saratoga Casino Hotel has donated over $3.2 million to different charitable groups in the Capital Region. Their Make a Difference initiative that started in 2004 has since been their main charitable event to honor and provide funding to local non-profit organizations.
