In February, Seven Mile Casino hosted the inaugural Big 24 Hour Giveback event, which resulted in $75,000 raised by donations. The casino recently presented a check to South Bay Community Services with the large donation. On the 28th of last month, for a 24-hour time frame, every individual who walked through the doors of the casino triggered a $100 donation to the non-profit. The Big 24 Hour Giveaway was a great success, helping the casino to raise the funds for the non-profit organization.
One of the owners of Seven Mile Casino, Masis Kevorkian, commented on the special event via press release by stating: “It is our great pleasure to announce that we met our fundraising goal of $75,000 through the Big 24 Hour Giveback. South Bay Community Services is an incredibly unique organization that works tirelessly to serve those who need it most. This event helped us bring our community together for a great cause, evident in how quickly we were able to meet our purpose.”
Within 12 hours of the event starting, the California casino was able to hit their $75,000 donation pledge. Throughout the day, members of the community, representatives of South Bay Community Services and local elected officials were on hand to take part in the special festivities.
The recipient of the donation, South Bay Community Services, is a non-profit organization located in Chula Vista that has been in operation for more than four decades, providing critical programs to help children and families that face stressful life events such as abuse and domestic violence. The organization strives to offer long-term solutions to break the cycle of violence.
President and CEO of South Bay Community Services, Kathy Lembo, commented on the donation by stating: “South Bay Community Services is honored to have been selected as the charity partner for this opening event. Our community partnerships are crucial to help us continue to provide the services the families and children we serve depend on.”
