UNI-Dome renovation receives $1.5 million donation from Elite Casino Resorts
A gaming operator based in Riverside is joining the campaign to renovate the UNI-Dome for the next generation with a $1.5 million investment, the second-largest donation to the project thus far.
Dan Kehl, CEO of Elite Casino Resorts, said the gift aligns with the family-owned company’s values of giving back to uplift the future of the state of Iowa.
“The UNI-Dome is such an iconic facility at such a great institution, it needs to be preserved,” Kehl said. “Our hope is that UNI continues to cultivate future leaders here in the state of Iowa and that the students who attend the University of Northern Iowa stay here in the state of Iowa to help Iowa prosper and grow.”
