On Monday December 29th, the Tule River Education Program was the last recipient of 2014 to receive a donation of $10,000 from Eagle Mountain Casino. The generous donation was made possible due to the Casinos Annual benefit Golf Tournament in August where $40,000 was raised. Five local Organizations were chosen to receive a share of the funds, and the Tule River Education Program was one of them.

General Manager Matthew Mingrone and Marketing Director Renee Garcia presented the check to Education Specialists Veronica Rodriguez and Marlena Escalera.

“Thank you Eagle Mountain Casino for your generous donation to the Tribal Education Program. This will benefit many Tule River Tribal Members to further their Education” said Escalera.
