    That should be Penn National Gaming, Inc.

    Some leads on some vendors who may also contribute (and have more sanitized names):
    "Hollywood Casino is scheduled to open this fall and has reached out to local vendors for their services.
    According to Maurine Adams, chief financial officer for Hollywood Casino, about 70 percent of purchasing will be on food and beverages.
    The $400 million casino will feature a steakhouse, a 10,000 square-foot banquet hall, cocktail lounge and sports bar.
    The casino also needs sellers in gaming equipment, cleaning supplies, paper products, maintenance supplies, promotional equipment, and tech equipment.
    Adams said, the wide span of activities inside the casino creates opportunities for a large variety of business. She said they have been visiting vendor fairs to network with potential suppliers.
    According to Rikki Tanenbaum, vice president of marketing, they already found good relationships with Westside businesses, like Live! Technology on Fisher Road for IT support and staging.
    Adams added they use area businesses for services like painting, dry cleaning and floral arrangements. They also give special attention to minority and women oriented vendors."

    If you pay attention to their shipping dock, without looking like a terrorist, you can take down the names painted on the vendor trucks.

    Penn National Gaming Foundation's granting criteria:
    • Education: Programs which support per-school, elementary and secondary eduction, post-secondary education and special education programs.
    • Human Services: Programs which address the needs of children and youth, senior citizens and disadvantages populations, especially in times of natural or man made disaster.
    • Cultural Affairs & Diversity: Programs and facilities designed to foster an understanding, appreciation and celebration of different cultures and encourage participation amoung individuals of different cultures and belief systems.
    • Scouting certainly qualifies under their Education criteria, Human Services criteria, and the Cultural. The application's wording just has to reflect their criteria
    • Good luck

      Thanks. Boomer - you named after Boomer Subs?

      Chain of command, food chain, supply chain ;-)

      When applying or looking for grants refrain from wearing balclavas and heavy vests; better suits, coats and slouch hats.
