San Manuel Casino Spreads Holiday Cheer Across the Inland Empire
On Monday, November 20, San Manuel Casino partnered with the Los Angeles Kings, Kings Care Foundation and Feeding America Riverside/San Bernardino for a “Day of Giving” to benefit Mary’s Mercy Center in San Bernardino. San Manuel Casino employees alongside LA Kings employees and alumni, which included Daryl Evans, and broadcaster Alex Faust, volunteered to hand out food and serve hot meals to more than 200 local families.
“We are proud to partner with the LA Kings and the Kings Care Foundation to deliver meals to more than 200 families. These efforts align directly with our desire to give back to the Southern California community,” said San Manuel Band of Mission Indians Chairwoman Lynn Valbuena. “I encourage others to get in the spirit of the holidays and lend a hand to those in need.”
More than 50 volunteers helped pass out pre-packaged food and water for families to take home. The LA Kings set up a street hockey rink and engaged with the local children. The “Day of Giving” concluded with a hot meal served by the San Manuel Casino and LA Kings volunteers.
In an effort to continue this season of giving, San Manuel Casino has partnered with KOLA 99.9 to make the holidays a little brighter for local San Bernardino children by hosting its annual holiday toy drive. People are encouraged to donate new, unwrapped toys at San Manuel Casino or at one of the KOLA hosted events through December 6.
Toys can be donated at San Manuel Casino Guest Services or at any of the holiday sleds placed around the property. In appreciation, San Manuel Casino is offering $10 in Xtra Credit Slot Play to guests who donate one unwrapped toy valued at $10 or more. Guests who donate more than one toy will receive the $10 Xtra Credit along with a $10 voucher for George Lopez’s Chingon Kitchen and $10 to Rock & Brews at San Manuel Casino. Xtra Credit and Dining Vouchers are given out at Guest Services; guests must be Club Serrano members to redeem the offer. Offer is only valid one time per person during the promotion.
In addition to collecting toys at San Manuel Casino, KOLA will host three community events where attendees can donate toys and receive Xtra Credit and dining vouchers. KOLA will also give away 125 pairs of tickets to their listeners for the finale party at Rock & Brews® at San Manuel Casino on December 6, hosted by KOLA host Jesse Duran. KOLA VIPs will enjoy live music and an exclusive area of the restaurant, plus food and the chance to win raffle prizes valued up to $500. The public is also invited to attend by bringing their unwrapped toys where they to, can enjoy live music and the chance to win raffle prizes. (Admission is not guaranteed and based on capacity)
Every toy donated will be individually wrapped by the San Manuel Casino team and delivered to the local children before Christmas Day.
