White Hall Gaming Center gives $250,000 to 45 charities

WHITE HALL, AL (WSFA) - The White Hall Entertainment Center gave more than $250,000 to the community Monday.

Cornerstone Community Outreach, the non-profit organization that operates the electronic bingo center, donated the money to 45 charities in Lowndes County.

Organizers say the bingo facility helps fund numerous community programs and charities.

"We built this community center," said White Hall General Manager Chad Dickie. "It's a multi million dollar community center. We're in the process of finishing up a multi-million dollar strip mall."

Dickie said the developments were all based off Cornerstone. "On top of that we have various other programs and events in which we sponsor, run or donate money to on top of these charities," he added. "We have a daycare center, we have adult services, adult transportation [health] services and a GED program..."

Whitehall Entertainment officials say the raid conducted in March by the Governor's Task Force on Illegal Gambling had no effect on Monday's donation, but added they hope to increase the amount in the future.

The gaming center remains in a legal battle with the Task Force over it's electronic bingo machines.
