Think Pink Promotions and Specials Will Be Featured Throughout October

(Wheeling, WV – October 4, 2013)  Wheeling Island Hotel-Casino-Racetrack supports Breast Cancer Awareness Month with “Think Pink” events and specials.
 
Wheeling Island associates will be supporting the cause with a donation for Jeans and T-shirt days each Sunday. Customers will be able to contribute cash, table chips or slot tickets in the drop boxes located at the front of the gaming floor and 2nd floor racing. All donations will benefit Komen for the Cure the West Virginia affiliate of Susan G. Komen.

On the racetrack, wiener dog races return and guests can enjoy a foot long hot dog for $3 with $1 from each purchase being donated to breast cancer research. These events kick-off Delaware North Companies Run For The Cure Week where the #1 greyhound will wear a pink blanket and Delaware North Companies Gaming and Entertainment division will make a donation based on the outcome of our #1 greyhound placing 1st, 2nd or 3rd in the race.
