Black Oak Casino Launches Designated Driver Program

17 February 2005

TUOLUMNE, California – (PRESS RELEASE) -- Black Oak Casino Management and the Tuolumne Band of Me-Wuk Indians have partnered with the California Highway Patrol to launch a designated driver program to promote safe driving.

Don't Hesitate to Designate is a program to encourage guests to take turns amongst their friends to drive sober and safely. Each designated driver must visit the Players Club booth to receive a designated driver ID. With the ID, the designated driver will reap the benefits of their good deed with free coffee and soft drinks at all food and beverage locations at the Casino. Once the designated driver has taken his or her turn five times, he/she will receive a free meal for two at any of the casino's restaurants. Plus, the designated driver will also receive a free gift for helping to keep the roads safer.

"The safety of our guests is of utmost importance," said Ron Patel, Casino Manager. "We hope that this program will not only remind guests to drive safely to and from the Casino, but also to encourage them to drive safely all the time."

Black Oak Casino recently opened its all-new facility that houses 940 slot machines featuring the latest in technology and themes, as well as 24 of the most popular live action table games, a 24-Hour buffet/cafi, a non-smoking gaming area with a non-smoking bar, and the Players Club. In addition, the facility features a family entertainment floor equipped with a sports bar, a 24-lane Brunswick bowling alley and pro shop, an arcade, and a family restaurant. Scheduled to open soon is the Casino gift shop and Seven Sisters, a specialty-dining restaurant planned to seat approximately 80 guests.

Black Oak Casino is owned and operated by the Tuolumne Band of Me-Wuk Indians.
