“As with the Cedar Fires, many members of our tribe know the devastation of losing your home and all of your possessions,” said Daniel Tucker. “That is why Sycuan was so eager to help the thousands of unfortunate people who have lost loved ones, been left homeless or otherwise affected by this tragedy.”
In addition to the financial contributions, Sycuan also announced that they will host a job fair for refugees who are displaced to San Diego. Sycuan currently employs nearly 4,000 people throughout its resort and casino properties and recognizes that the hurricane victims will need job stability. Sycuan has also set up a collection center at its casino for guests who wish to donate to the relief efforts.
