Casino CEO Kim Van Amburg says it's a great feeling to be able to help.
"These organizations are just incredible and to be able to make a difference. I think you heard Lisa Power from Girl Power talking about how that's gonna enable them to fund 10 girls to go to New York and DC and provide some other services to the organization. The Children's Advocacy Center is going to be able to hire someone to do that intake that they can't do now. It's really incredible. 2:52 runs: 24
