SAN DIEGO, Dec. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Sycuan Casino Resort proudly presented a $150,000 donation to Big Table San Diego. Big Table is a local non-profit organization that supports workers in the hospitality and restaurant industry. Just this year alone, the organization has helped hundreds of workers in critical need of assistance.
"Little did we know when we launched in San Diego last year, that the industry that we cared for would be so heavily impacted," said Jesse Vigil, city director at Big Table San Diego. "For us all to come together as a community to share hope and light in such a dark time is beautiful and that would be an understatement. We are beyond grateful for Sycuan's support and the impact this gift will have on so many lives."
"This year has been devastating to several industries, but the restaurant and hospitality industry has been hit particularly hard," said Cody Martinez, chairman, Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation. "Over the years, San Diego has become a top destination for its culinary offerings and we want to do everything we can to help our hospitality workers survive through these difficult times. We hope this donation will go a long way in keeping restaurant and hospitality workers not only afloat, but to help provide funding and much-needed access to healthcare, education, transportation and more."
