More Than $84,000 Raised in Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign
The San Manuel Band of Mission Indians and Yaamava’ Resort & Casino participated in a breast cancer awareness campaign between September 7 and October 7 to benefit The Pink Ribbon Place, which serves Inland Empire families through no-cost resources and programs.
As part of the team member and Tribal Citizen philanthropy program, the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians matched donations made by both team members and Tribal Citizens; a total of $85,094.02 was donated to The Pink Ribbon Place.
Those who donated received a special “Together We Fight. Together We Win” long-sleeved shirt to show support and bring awareness to this disease, which impacts family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers throughout the Inland Empire. Each year, more than 2,000 women in Riverside and San Bernardino counties are diagnosed with breast cancer.
San Manuel is dedicated to the health and wellness of its team members and their families, and supporting this cause is just one of the ways it helps to promote healthier communities. Since 2019, the Tribe and Casino have provided grants to both Susan G. Komen Inland Empire and The Pink Ribbon Place.
