A total of $2,096 was raised at the door and Tachi Palace Hotel & Casino and the Santa Rosa Rancheria Tribe matched the amount bringing the grand total of the donation to $4,192. Santa Rosa Rancheria Tribal Chairman Leo Sisco and Vice Chairman Robert Jeff presented the check to Victim Witness Assistance Program Coordinator Julia Patino.
“We appreciate Tachi Palace and the Tribe for providing us with this opportunity and thank them for recognizing our organization,” said Patino. “We rely primarily on grants and this donation helps us pay for community events that otherwise would not be funded, including training sessions on human trafficking, elder abuse, and others.”
More than 400 people attended the breakfast including members of the Hanford and Lemoore law enforcement, Links for Life affiliates, and other community members.
The next community breakfast will be held on Friday, August 30, and will benefit Central Union School District. Tachi Palace hosts a monthly community breakfast that features a breakfast buffet, informative community news and business networking, as well as raffle prizes. Attendees are encouraged to make a minimum donation of $5 and all contributions benefit a featured organization. For more information, visit tachipalace.com.
