Miracle on Canal Street is Potawatomi Hotel & Casino’s signature community program. Half of each $3 Miracle bingo game purchased goes to the Miracle fund, which totaled nearly $1 million last year and provided funding to children’s charities in southeastern Wisconsin. JFS is in the running to be a 2014 Miracle charity. You can help give the gift of a promising future by playing now through December 11. Visit paysbig.com/miracle.
