The Cabazon Band of Mission Indians together with Fantasy Springs Resort Casino donated $10,000 to the local Riverside County Chapter American Red Cross.
Last week, Fantasy Springs Resort Casino General Manager Paul Ryan presented the donation to Lois Beckman, CEO of the Riverside County Chapter. “The Cabazon Band of Mission Indians has teamed up with the Red Cross in support of their efforts for disaster relief in our city and around the world,” Ryan said. “We recognize that this gift will go a long way in helping those in need in order to overcome tragedy.”
Locally, across the country and around the world, the American Red Cross is helping people affected by all kinds of disaster, such as house fires, the wildfires witnessed this summer, the tornadoes that impacted the mid-west earlier this month, and the devastating Typhoon that hit the Philippines. The Red Cross is there providing shelter, food, comfort and support.
The Cabazon Band of Mission Indians is a federally recognized Indian tribe with approximately 1,610 acres of reservation land in the Coachella Valley. The Tribe owns several business enterprises including Fantasy Springs Resort Casino. Goals include growing and diversifying its business ventures to increase employment in the Coachella Valley, increasing the support of community programs, continuing to pursue economic self-sufficiency and preserving and educating the public about Cabazon culture.
