Congratulations to Jack Ruesch for recently being elected to the Iowa West Racing Association Board of Directors!
The Iowa West Racing Association is made up of volunteer community leaders from throughout Pottawattamie County.
The Association is the nonprofit license sponsor for Ameristar and Harrah’s and, therefore, receives contracted fees from those casino operators. The Association grants the fees to charity, in this case, the Iowa West Foundation.
The Iowa West Foundation is one of the largest private foundations in the Midwest. It has distributed more than $300 million in grants to non-profits and governmental agencies throughout Southwest Iowa and Eastern Nebraska since the inception of its grant program in 1996.
