Colts Receive Grant

June 9, 2010

Mystique Casino has announced grant recipients for 2010 and the Colts are pleased to announce they have received funding for a newer 15 passenger van.

The Dubuque Racing Association/Mystique Casino is a paramutuel dog track and casino located in Dubuque and owned by a non-profit organization. It recently celebrated its 25th anniversary.

The DRA/Mystique Casino has made money available for non-profit organizations through a competitive grant process every year since 1985, and in that time, has contributed over $30,500,000 to non-profit organizations in and around Dubuque, including over $1,200,000 in 2010.

The Colts have received funding in all but one of those years and in total are the 5th largest recipient organization, receiving nearly $300,000 in that time. These contributions have been used for instruments, uniforms, our current souvenir truck and trailer, building remodeling and vehicle upgrades.

This year, over 175 non-profit agencies received funding, and the grant the Colts received was one of the ten largest awarded.

The new van will be on tour with the Colts beginning later this month.

Our thanks to the Mystique Casino for their on-going and valuable support of the Colts organization.
