Meadows Racetrack & Casino holds job fair

2 February 2007

MEADOW LANDS, Pennsylvania –- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Officials from The Meadows Racetrack & Casino will participate in the NAACP Diversity Job Fair on Thursday, Feb. 22 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh.

Cannery Casino Resorts (CCR), which owns the Meadows, has a long and successful track record of hiring a diverse workforce for its gaming facilities. Once completed, The Meadows will create an expected 400 family- sustaining jobs and contribute millions to the local economy.

"This is an important job fair, and we're looking forward to it," said Bill Paulos, a CCR principal. "As we build what will be nothing less than a first-class racing and gaming complex in Western Pennsylvania, we are focusing on hiring qualified and diverse employees who will play key roles in the long- term success of The Meadows."

A $450 million project that will provide a fully integrated gaming and racing experience in Washington County, The Meadows Racetrack & Casino will open a temporary slots facility this spring, making it the first gaming facility to open in western Pennsylvania.

"Being the first to open in Western Pennsylvania will give us the opportunity to get a head start in developing a strong identity with gaming enthusiasts in the region - and identifying a strong team of employees," Paulos said. "Our temporary facility will be a top-notch facility. It will look just like our permanent casino, only smaller."

The permanent 250,000-square-foot, two-story casino, which would hold 3,000 slot machines, will open within two years after the temporary racino is completed.

The permanent gaming facility will include a number of new and exciting amenities:

-- A bar, lounge and stage in the center of the casino floor

-- Two-story theater with tiered seating and balcony

-- Premier steak house

-- Multi-tiered 700-seat buffet style restaurant with views of the gaming floor and racetrack

-- Sports bar connected to a simulcast center

-- Climate-controlled grandstand seating

-- Sky-lit viewing gallery overlooking the racing paddock

-- Convention area

-- VIP area overlooking the lounge with a select view of the race

track The NAACP Diversity Job Fair is co-sponsored by the Pittsburgh Post- Gazette and the NAACP.
