QUESNEL – Royal Canadian Legion Branch #94 will benefit from $14,500 thanks to the B.C. government’s Community Gaming Grant program.

The Legion Branch # 94 has served Quesnel and the region since 1927, helping veterans and their family members. The Legion also assists other community groups.

“Our local Legion offers a place for veterans and their friends to gather and supports veterans and Legion programs,” Cariboo North MLA Coralee Oakes said. “This grant will enable our Legion to continue to help veterans and others here in Quesnel.”

This grant is awarded under the Human and Social Services category of the Community Gaming Grant program, which allows non-profit organizations to apply for provincial gaming revenues from the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development. Gaming grants are also awarded in the categories of Public Safety, Sports and Arts and Culture, and Environment.
