Foxwoods to celebrate 15th anniversary tonight with $150,000 donation to local charities

The Norwich Bulletin reported this story on Thursday:

MASHANTUCKET — Foxwoods Resort Casino is celebrating its 15th anniversary tonight with a $150,000 donation to 15 local charities.

Part of the celebration includes an evening VIP reception featuring governmental officials and dignitaries.

“Anniversaries are so often about pomp and circumstance,” said John O’Brien, Foxwoods president, in a prepared statement. “While that is certainly fun to be part of a festive celebration, we at Foxwoods wanted to be sure to recognize this milestone with something of substance that would also be lasting, meaningful and supportive of the communities that surround us.”

I guess I don't feel as stupid about the money I've lost playing blackjack at those casinos in Connecticut if there is a chance my money is going toward one of these grants. Has anyone heard which group are going to get the money?
