It’s no secret that small businesses have been taking the hits over the last ten months. That’s why the Meadows Racetrack + Casino, The Hollywood Casino, and Barstool Sports have teamed up this weekend to raise funds to support our local economy.  If you’re looking for something to do this weekend all while supporting an important cause just download the Barstool Sports App to participate! You could also take a day trip out to the Washington or Grantville casinos for a day packed with safe, socially-distant, fun. 

The fundraiser will begin at 8:00 am on Saturday, January 9 and conclude at 11:59 pm on Sunday, January 10. Visitors to the retail sportsbook at Hollywood Casino or the Meadows will have their first-time rated wager matched by the casinos with a donation to The Barstool Fund. In addition, Pennsylvania residents will have their first-time deposit on the Barstool Sportsbook App matched with a donation to The Barstool Fund provided they wager equal or more than their first-time deposit during the weekend.

Earlier this week, Penn National donated $1 million to the cause, which to date has raised over $20 million from more than 155,000 supporters. “It’s amazing what Dave Portnoy and his team have done so far,” said Tony Frabbiele, Vice  President and General Manager at The Meadows. “We wanted to localize the support here in  Washington County and decided we can make it fun for our players to be part of the  fundraising.”
Any small business owners in need of help due to the impact of the pandemic on their business and employees are encouraged to apply for support at  TheBarstoolFund.com/apply.
