PHL Local Gaming, LLC Posts A "Philadelphia-First" Facebook Page

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PHL Local Gaming, LLC, one of six bidders for the available Category 2 casino management license in Philadelphia, today announced that it has posted a company Facebook page (, as one of its early steps in what will be an ongoing effort to share its " Philadelphia-first" story with people in the city, the surrounding region and statewide.

The page includes, among other things, a presentation of the company's proposed gaming property, described as a 'high-quality', 'destination'-caliber hotel and casino."

Also presented is a profile of PHL Local Gaming's primary investor, Joseph Procacci, CEO of Procacci Brothers Sales Corp., the major South Philadelphia-based produce company; and of Joseph Canfora, PHL's casino operator, who brings 30 years of gaming experience to his position.

In addition, the page includes information about Mr. Procacci's extensive development history, with a special focus on a 2000-acre residential golf course community, in Naples, Florida, called The Vineyards Country Club, which was developed by Mr. Procacci and his brother, Michael.

"Over the course of the next several months, we want to establish that PHL Gaming is not simply interested in managing a very successful, 'destination'-quality casino," said Canfora. "We're also placing a high priority on our project's ability to create good jobs for our neighbors, and for other Philadelphians, and on creating contract opportunities for Philadelphia-based businesses, including minority and female firms. In addition, we want to stress that, among all six bidders, our site, at Front and Pattison, would be furthest removed – about a mile away – from any residential areas."

"Given the importance of jobs and contracts to our local economy," Canfora added, "we feel that a Philadelphia-first economic impact plan is precisely what should be expected from the winning casino developer."
