New Charity Gaming Facility under Construction in Willoughby Hills is on Track for Opening in August.
Buckeye Charity Poker and Gaming Festivals will Feature World’s Largest Electronic Poker Room
“Buckeye Charity Poker and Gaming Festivals,” the new Lake County charity gaming facility located at the Bishop Road exit of I-90 will open in August, barring any setbacks. Operated by Northeast Ohio Charity Services, LLC, sponsored by the Village of Woodmere and recently approved by the Planning Commission of the City of Willoughby Hills, this new charity gaming center will deliver an entirely new and unique gaming experience and provide much needed funding to many local charitable causes.
The 10,000 square foot facility, expected to be open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 2:30 a.m., will feature the world’s largest electronic poker room and several electronic blackjack tables and will host charity fund raising events focused on the local community.
“Now that construction of the facility has commenced, we will immediately begin accepting applications from charities seeking to host a four day fundraising festival,” reports Woodmere Mayor Charles Smith. “As the sponsoring government, we will undertake initial review of the charities’ legal qualifications and focus on causes with the most significant links to the local community and with festival presentations that will offer the greatest educational and cultural opportunities.”
To qualify to host an event, Ohio law requires that the charitable organization has maintained its 501 c 3 status for a period of at least two years prior to the proposed event. Charity applications are available at buckeyecharitypoker.org and must be submitted to Mayor Charles Smith, Woodmere Village Hall, 27899 Chagrin Boulevard, Woodmere, Ohio 44122.
