Mountaineer donates playing cards to auxiliary in Chester

Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack and Resort donated more than 600 decks of playing cards to the Ladies Auxiliary Post 6540 in Chester.

The presentation was made at a July meeting.

The Chester organization will distribute the playing cards to active duty military personnel to help pass the time during deployment, as well as to veterans homes that the VFW sponsors.

“It is a pleasure to donate the cards to an organization that can do great things with them,” said Chris Kern, general manager of Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack and Resort. “We hope that these playing cards will bring enjoyment to the men and women currently serving in our military and to our veterans at home.”

Mountaineer’s Colin Loosemore presented members of the Ladies Auxiliary Post 6540 with cards to distribute to active duty troops and veterans.
