Nominations will be reviewed, and a limited number of nominees will be contacted on Saturday or Sunday if chosen.

“We are grateful to the Pegulas and to Governor Cuomo for allowing fans into the stadium for the playoff game, said President and CEO from Batavia Downs Gaming, Henry Wojtaszek. “We wanted to make sure those who have been at the forefront of this pandemic and those keeping us safe during these extraordinary times were considered for this opportunity.  These folks have made tremendous sacrifices for the greater good of the communities they serve.  This offering is just a small part of what we can do to thank them.”
