del Lago Resort & Casino’s Savor del Lago Raises Nearly $2,000 for Thrive to Survive

From the very start, del Lago Resort & Casino has had a focused mission to strengthen the community by supporting local nonprofit organizations and businesses. Each month, del Lago Resort & Casino hosts Savor del Lago (formerly Tasting Tuesdays), an event featuring wine, beer and cider samplings from local Finger Lakes wineries, breweries and cideries. Proceeds from the event support a different local charity each month. As the beneficiary of the March Savor del Lago, Thrive to Survive was presented with a $1,731 check from the resort and casino.

Thrive to Survive is dedicated to providing support in a variety of ways to adults living in Geneva, Waterloo, Seneca Falls, Stanley, Clifton Springs, Phelps, Dundee, Keuka Park and Penn Yan, New York, who are being treated for cancer. Through this support, Thrive to Survive hopes to relieve unnecessary stress on the patient, allowing them to focus on their recovery and their families. The ultimate goal of Thrive to Survive is to be able to support adults with cancer emotionally and financially.

Del Lago launched this monthly event in June 2017 and has raised more than $17,000 for numerous local charities, including the Seneca County House of Concern, Cayuga/Seneca Community Action Agency, Calvary Food Pantry, United Way of Seneca County and the American Heart Association of Rochester.
