Dowagiac, Mich. Southwest Michigan's newest casino has generated over $9 million since it opened in April.
Some of that money is going to help schools and Cass County's local government.
The Pokagon band presented a check to the "Dowagiac area local revenue sharing board" Wednesday for $183,000.
The money represents 2 percent of the $9 million the casino made in its first three months, some of which will go towards helping autistic kids.
“We had a huge increased enrollment in autistic kids and that group poses challenges for us, so those funds will support programming for those students,” said Lewis Cass Intermediate School District Superintendent Robert Colby.
The city of Dowagiac also received a chunk of money, which the mayor tells us will go toward way-finding signs.
