A Riverside-based gaming operator has joined the campaign to renew an iconic University of Northern Iowa landmark with a $1.5 million investment toward a renovation project for the UNI-Dome.

Dan Kehl, CEO of Elite Casino Resorts, said the gift, the second-largest to the renovation project thus far, aligns with the family-owned company’s values of giving back to uplift the future of the state of Iowa.

“The UNI-Dome is such an iconic facility at such a great institution, it needs to be preserved,” Kehl said. “Our hope is that UNI continues to cultivate future leaders here in the state of Iowa and that the students who attend the University of Northern Iowa stay here in the state of Iowa to help Iowa prosper and grow.”
