NICHOLS, N.Y. -- The United Way of Tioga County New York says their "Starz" fundraiser, which was held at Tioga Downs in December, raised more than $65,000.
But on Thursday, the owner of Tioga Downs, Jeff Gural, presented a $35,000 check to United Way officials. Because of that, in total, the "Starz" fundraiser has raised more than $100,000.
