Saratoga Today

Saratoga Casino and Raceway Foundation recently gave an award of $2000 to support Project Lift, Franklin Community Center’s after school prevention program. Project Lift strives to educate youth on the dangers of drugs, alcohol and gambling through character building activities that promote self-esteem and enhance peer relationships. “With the continual threat of funding cuts, the gift that the Saratoga Casino and Raceway Foundation has given is extremely generous and will help us continue providing effective and efficient services to Project Lift students and their families” says Jaime Williams, associate director for the center. The funds will be used to further the program’s problem gambling prevention activities and to host family events at each site with a focus on gambling prevention.
