Barona Resort & Casino stands by Filipino community in wake of Typhoon Haiyan

22 November 2013

SAN DIEGO, California -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Barona Resort & Casino has joined in the relief efforts to help those affected by the devastation of Typhoon Haiyan. Barona recently presented a $10,000 donation to the Philippine American Business Improvement and Development (Phil Am BID) during the organization's annual gala. Barona will also continue to support those affected by Typhoon Haiyan with another $10,000 cash donation and a three-week, casino-wide fundraiser that will benefit relief efforts through the American Red Cross.

The casino-wide fundraiser begins on Saturday, November 23 as Filipino politician and boxing legend Manny "Pac-Man" Pacquiao takes on Brandon "Bam Bam" Rios in a pay-per-view fight which will be shown at the casino. From November 23 through December 15, Barona will match, dollar-for-dollar, the price of each Filipino-inspired entrée purchased at Ho Wan Noodle Shop. Players and staff will also have an opportunity to make a donation in designated collection boxes throughout the casino and everyone who makes a donation will be given a special thank-you button for their support.

"Our hearts go out to those affected by the typhoon and we hope our donation plus the proceeds of the fundraiser will inspire others to help with the relief effort," said Rick Salinas, general manager of Barona Resort & Casino. "We have many staff members and guests with friends and family in the Philippines and it is going to take a long time and incredible resources to help the country heal. We want to do as much as we can to provide aid to victims, and to give our guests the opportunity to help as well."
