Bingo makes miracles

A couple of months ago, I reported on Potawatomi Bingo Casino's annual fundraiser called Miracle on Canal Street, the casino's signature charitable program with the mission to improve the quality of life for children in southeastern Wisconsin.

Through a series of special bingo games, the 2012 program raised $981,273 for 30 Wisconsin-based charities.

This year, Potawatomi chose OnMilwaukee.com as a Miracle On Canal signature media partner. OnMilwaukee.com's charity of choice was the Milwaukee Bicycle Collective.

The bicycle collective is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization that provides a publicly accessible bicycle resource center for the city of Milwaukee.

The group received a check for $32,709 from Miracle On Canal Street earlier this week, and won an additional $3,000 through additional charity games.

"We are extremely excited for the potential that this grant can offer us. The collective has been able to slowly improve over the past few years but this pushes us well over the tipping point and opens up a lot of opportunities to help become a bigger part of the surrounding neighborhood," says Jason McDowell, OnMilwaukee.com designer and Milwaukee Bicycle Collective volunteer.
