San Manuel Golf Tournament Raises Over $400,000 for Nonprofits
The San Manuel Band of Mission Indians and Yaamava’ Resort & Casino at San Manuel combined their efforts for the annual San Manuel Golf Tournament in early August, which raised more than $400,00 for local and national nonprofits.
With contributions from Tribal leaders, vendors and community partners, eight nonprofit organizations received a hand up for their commitment to creating a better tomorrow in the community and Indian Country.
Four tribal and four local nonprofits were awarded $50,000, respectively, for their commitment to education, health, economic and community development.
“I continue to be in awe of the thoughtfulness and generosity of our sponsors and partners to continue San Manuel’s mission of supporting organizations that are truly the boots on the ground for making our world a better place,” said San Manuel Band of Mission Indians Business Committee Secretary Audrey Martinez. “These eight nonprofits are dedicated to improving the lives of so many Native Americans as well as local communities, and we are proud to be in a position where we can help. The tournament is just one of the many ways San Manuel embodies a culture of giving back.”
With more than 1,200 participants in attendance over the weeklong tournament, this was the largest tournament ever to be hosted by San Manuel and Yaamava’.
