Charities get their annual payout from Chances Chilliwack

Knight Road Legacy Association gets cheque $641,444 from Chances Chilliwack

Knight Road Legacy Association (KRLA) received its annual payout of $641,444, as its share of gaming revenue for 2018 from Chances Chilliwack.

The original agreement between the two parties, which secured trailing payments every year, was signed in 2012. Since that time KRLA has been on the receiving end of more than $2.7 million from Chances Chilliwack.

The annual cheque is based on the facility’s performance for the year and the agreement stipulated it would continue for the first 20 years of operations at the site.

Last year, the members of KRLA received $608,691.
