(San Diego, Calif.) – May 4, 2017 – Sycuan Casino proudly donated $25,000 to Mama’s Kitchen, a non-profit organization in San Diego. The donation is in support of the 26th Annual Mama’s Day event that helps to raise funds for Mama’s Kitchen’s mission to deliver hot, nutritious meals free of charge to local men, women and children affected by AIDS or cancer. Last year, Mama’s Day raised $165,000, which provided 51,000 home-delivered meals.
“Mama’s Kitchen is grateful for the unwavering generosity and long-standing partnership of Sycuan Casino and the Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation,” said Alberto Cortés, executive director, Mama’s Kitchen. “Sycuan’s contributions are vital to helping us provide nourishing meals for our neighbors struggling with AIDS or cancer.”
“We are very proud to partner with such a wonderful organization like Mama’s Kitchen,” said John Dinius, general manager at Sycuan Casino. “Mama’s Kitchen is committed to making a positive impact in the San Diego community and we are honored to help support that mission.”
