Viejas Casino & Resort Team Members and Guests Raise Over 12,000 Toys for Local Salvation Army
SAN DIEGO --(Business Wire)--
Viejas Casino & Resort Team Members and guests have raised more than
12,000 toys for the Salvation Army serving eastern San Diego County.
Viejas Casino & Resort Team Members and Viejas Tribal Government staff
donated the toys during the month of November. In addition, Viejas
Casino Guests received $5 Free Play Cash in exchange for donations of
new, unwrapped toys and shoppers at the Viejas Outlets received
discounts at Viejas Bowl and the Viejas Ice Rink, as well as a Gift Card
in exchange for new, unwrapped toys.
There was a lot of excitement and anticipation this evening during the
"Big Reveal" where the curtain was raised in the DreamCatcher at Viejas
Casino, all the toys are revealed on stage, and the exact number of toys
raised was announced - 12,017 toys! It was a new record and it is
believed to be the most toys raised by a single organization in San
Viejas Casino General Manager Chris Kelley said, "This year's goal of
10,000 toys was a bit daunting at first, but when we started seeing the
response from our guests and Team Members we quickly became very
confident that we could reach the goal. And actually exceeding it by so
much is incredible, and is a testament to the spirit and dedication of
all those involved."
Also at this evening's event, Viejas Community Relations presented
Salvation Army Captain Terry Masango with a check for $15,000 on behalf
of the Viejas Band of Kumeyaay Indians to support the Army's efforts in
eastern San Diego County.
