Community Involvement

We at Finger Lakes Gaming & Racetrack work and live in the community where we serve, so it is only right that we do our share. Here are some of the ways we help:

2016 Charity Cup Logo

The 9th annual $30,000 Finger Lakes Gaming & Racetrack Charity Cup event, a day of racing and recognition of charitable community service organizations, was held on Saturday, October 8, 2016. Six local area not-for-profits competed for a share of $30,000 through an interactive event featuring an afternoon of thoroughbred racing.

Over 175 attendees representing the six organizations joined together to cheer on their causes for the 2016 Charity Cup event. Each group selected one horse in each of the six designated races and earned points based on any finishing in the top three, with the group accumulating the most points at the end of the day receiving a $10,000 donation and the Charity Cup!

Below are the final standings and total donations received:

First place: Gleaners Community Kitchen ($10,000)
Second place: Ontario County Police Benevolent Association ($6,000)
Third Place: House of Mercy Rochester, New York  ($5,000)
Fourth Place: 
Adapted Recreation Services, Inc.
Fifth place: 
American Cancer Society ($3,000)
Sixth place: Rochester School of the Holy Childhood, Inc. ($2,000)

United Way Day of Caring

United way logoFinger Lakes Gaming & Racetrack employees volunteer every year for the Ontario County United Way Day of Caring.

The Day of Caring kicks off the United Way Campaign. Year after year, over thirty agencies in Ontario County have over 450 volunteers from businesses and organizations in our area reaching out and helping the United Way Agencies. Each agency has many different tasks for the volunteers to help them out with including: painting, shampooing rugs, washing windows, yard work, etc. Not only is the Day of Caring a great help for the United Way, it’s also a fun employee team building day.

During the United Way Campaign, Finger Lakes Gaming & Racetrack also hosts a food drive to help the local food cupboards in Ontario County. Employees generously donate non-perishable food & items to help out those in need.

Points for Kids

Points for kids

Each year Finger Lakes Gaming & Racetrack’s Guests and Employees find their holiday spirit in a big way. Members of our Player Extras Club donate their gaming points for the annual Points for Kids promotion that started back in 2004.

Along with Finger Lakes Association purchasing gifts, employees donate gifts and make the true spirit of the holiday season shine. The Employees double as elves and shop to make sure every child who is in foster care in Ontario County have a wonderful holiday season. A truck load of gifts ranging from toys, games, bikes and clothes are delivered to OCSS to be wrapped and given to the kids they serve. Each year on average, there are between 55 & 65 kids who benefit from the Points for Kids Promotion.

Highway Clean-up

Highway clean up

Four times a year, Finger Lakes Gaming & Racetrack employees clean up a portion of the highway near the facility. The cleanup is a two mile stretch of the highway right in front of the property. Finger Lakes adopted the highway in 2009, and have been keeping it clean for three years!
