Presenting a check for $7,000 to the Rochester Veterans Treatment Court

Batavia Downs Gaming President and CEO Henry Wojtaszek presented representatives from the Rochester Veterans Treatment Court with a check for $7,000 to help support their efforts of assisting Veterans within the court system.

On October 21st a Vets night dinner was held at Batavia Downs in conjunction with a night of live racing.  Proceeds from live and penny auctions were collected in support of the Rochester Veterans Treatment Court.

“We are appreciative to Sean Schiano from Batavia Downs for thinking of us, “said Ray Melens, Lead Mentor for the Monroe County Veterans Court.  “The funds are so important for us to continue our work as we look to assist Veterans who find themselves within the court system.  We strive to identify and treat the underlying issues facing many Veterans to help them get back on the right path.”

“Veterans have a special meaning for Batavia Downs, “said Wojtaszek.  “So many of our own employees volunteered their time, as well as donated many of the baskets for our Penny Auction.  One of our directors, Michael Horton, was the auctioneer for the live action which helped raise additional funds.”
