Sycuan’s Gift Giving Ceremony

Sycuan’s Gift Giving Ceremony is a 90-minute celebration recognizing organizations that are making a difference in the community. Each year, members of the Sycuan Tribal Council and Sycuan Leadership Team choose one charity to donate to on behalf of Sycuan. 

The Sycuan Tribal Council and Sycuan Leadership Team presented a total of $77,000 to 30 charities during the Ceremony on December 14 at Sycuan Casino’s Paipa’s Buffet.

“On behalf of Sycuan, its our honor to pay it forward. We have many generations of being on the receiving end of a lot of community charities, so for us to be able to pay it forward, we honor our grandparents in that effort,” said Cody Martinez, Tribal Chairman. “30 great organizations and their personal testimonies bring us to the edge of tears – thank you for all you do!”
