It’s A Safe Bet For Schools

If you are reading this issue hot off the presses, today is July 11, or 7-11, considered by many to be a lucky day. In fact, this issue represents our whole week, and we’ll gladly share the good fortune with all of you. Seven or eleven are the numbers that make you a winner when shooting “craps”—no, it’s not a bad word, it’s a dice game, and it was at the center of “Guys and Dolls,” the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical and movie starring Frank Sinatra as Nathan Detroit, the organizer of less-than-legal floating crap games. He would be out of a job now, as we are lucky indeed to have Resorts World Casino New York City right here in Queens, a completely legit casino, which generated more than $248 million for the NYS Lottery education fund for students during the 2017-2018 school year. This money can be used to hire thousands of teachers, get the kids iPads and/or tickets to the Museum of Modern Art. (For more information, see last week’s issue of the Gazette at QGazette.com.) Furthermore, Resorts World has contributed more than $2 billion to New York’s public schools since it opened in 2011. That was a lot of lettuce, as Damon Runyon would say!

We have picked a winner with Resorts World Casino, which is the largest taxpayer in New York State, contributing 70 percent of its total revenue to the state. They also work with 79 Queens organizations to help them reach their fundraising goals.

Resorts World Casino is the height of cool, with the hippest cats and the most sophisticated dolls, and the latest games, dining, and entertainment. This casino is always fair and square—these dice are never loaded, just loads of fun, and for a good cause!
