COLUSA, CA (January 4, 2022) — Colusa Casino Resort and the Colusa Indian Community Council donated $60,000 to The American Red Cross California Gold Country Region from proceeds raised by the 8th Annual Colusa Casino Resort Charity Golf Tournament.
Over the past seven years, Colusa Casino Resort has been able to donate over $400,000 to local non-profit organizations, directly benefiting the residents of Northern California.
From the 2021 charity golf tournament, Colusa Casino Resort and the Colusa Indian Community Council donated $50,000 in support of local Red Cross programs and services. Another $10,000 has been designated to sponsor The BASH, the local Red Cross’ annual fundraising event.
“Colusa Casino Resort and the Cachil Dehe Band of Wintun Indians take pride in being a part in helping the surrounding communities with the proceeds from our golf tournament to benefit worthy organizations every year and we are proud to have selected the American Red Cross organization to be the recipient of all that effort from the 2021 event. We believe the American Red Cross shares our same values and has shown to be a great partner with fulfilling our charitable objectives that we have set forth and beyond,” said Victor Fernandez, General Manager of Colusa Casino Resort.
"The American Red Cross is so grateful to have such a strong and generous community partner in Colusa Casino Resort and the Colusa Indian Community Council,” said Gary Strong, CEO of American Red Cross California Gold Country Region.
The BASH is an annual volunteer-led fundraiser that celebrates the lifesaving mission of the local Red Cross. The upcoming BASH will be held on Wednesday, March 30, 2022. This hybrid event will feature an in-person VIP reception at Sutter Health Park and virtual “watch parties” livestreamed throughout the region.
