Sycuan Presents Donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters San Diego

June 28, 2021

Sycuan Casino Resort proudly presented $15,000 to Big Brothers Big Sisters San Diego in support of their annual Golf Marathon. This is the fifth consecutive year that the Golf Marathon has been hosted at Singing Hills Golf Resort at Sycuan. In addition to the original $15,000 contribution, Sycuan ensured that BBBS met their ambitious 2021 goal of $300,000 by donating an additional $7,588.

“On behalf of our Bigs and Littles, dedicated staff and committed Board of Directors, Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Diego County would like to express its heartfelt gratitude for the generous support from the Sycuan Band of Kumeyaay Nation. We are honored to partner together to provide critical mentoring support and empower the lives of youth and their families, during a time of great need,” said Tina Rose, CEO/President of Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Diego County. “Our longstanding partnership allows us to provide caring mentors for youth across San Diego County building a stronger community and brighter future for our county’s most precious resource.”

Sycuan has been a proud supporter Big Brothers Big Sisters San Diego since 2013 and the organizations have partnered on several initiatives including Operation Big, volunteer efforts within the Sycuan Leadership Team, the Annual Phil’s BBQ at Petco Park and Sycuan’s Gift Giving Ceremony.

ABOUT THE GOLF MARATHON:

In its 28th year, the Golf Marathon has raised over $2.9 million to provide mentors to more than 2,000 children! The event challenges golfers to play as many holes of golf in one day, while raising funds to help match children who are waiting for a mentor from Big Brothers Big Sisters. There is no fee for participating in the marathon. Golfers raise a minimum of $2,000 in donations (returning golfers) or $1,000 (rookies) and many exceed this commitment. Big Brothers Big Sisters helps golfers by providing a Golf Marathon event website, a personal web page for each golfer, and other helpful materials. Special prizes are awarded to the Golf Marathon fundraisers as an incentive for golfers to go above and beyond their fundraising goals.
