Bo Jackson joins investment group looking to open Calumet City casino.
Bo Jackson is an equity partner in the proposed Southland Live Casino in Calumet City. He wants to help the area's underprivileged kids. The group is also partnering with South Suburban College on a hospitality management program. Four groups are vying for a single casino license for the south suburbs. Regulators are expected to narrow the field to three after each group makes a public presentation next week. A winner is expected by early next year. It's the first casino venture in Bo's wide-ranging business portfolio. His investment makes the Calomet city pitch a majority minority-owned limited liability company.
