Jeffrey Gural Will Do ‘Whatever It Takes’ for Casino License

Jeffrey Gural

Real estate developer Jeffrey Gural will do whatever it takes to get a license for a new casino license, even if that means teaming up with former competitors and multiplying his donations, according to WBNG news. The Tioga Downs owner is making his second application for a Las Vegas style casino on the Southern Tier after the New York State Gaming Facility Location indicated it would re-open the application process.

Jeff Gural said, “I’m going to get this license. I’m not going to leave anything unturned. Anything that is needed to be done to get that license, if it makes any sense, I will do.” Gural plans to bring Virgil’s barbecue restaurant to Tioga Downs, as well as P.J. Clarkes, miniature golf and batting cages.

He was planning to donate $500, 000 to business development in the area, but he has increased that amount by a million dollars. The Walsh family of Traditions at the Glen feel it makes sense to join forces with Gural; there is not yet news whether the deal will lead to royalties for the Walsh family.  “We are the community of the Southern Tier, ” said Senator Thomas Libous, “We need this license. We need these jobs.”

Jeffrey Gural was born into the real estate development business, and was former Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Times Square Business Improvement District. He was also chairman of the Eldridge Street synagogue, is on the Board of the UJA Federation and the Jewish Community Center of the Upper West Side, as well as the “I have a Dream” project.
