Employees of three businesses owned by the Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians raised over $5,494 to make the holidays more joyous for families in Tehama and Glenn County.
Rolling Hills Casino, Rolling Hills Clinic, and MD Barnmaster each donated prizes for the 12th annual Rolling Hills Employee Holiday Raffle. The fundraising effort enabled the employees to adopt three families in Tehama County, and two families and two seniors in Glenn County.
The Human Resources department shopped, wrapped, and delivered the presents on behalf of the employees. “We spent $100 on each child and gave the adults $100 gift cards for groceries. We spent $50 each on the seniors and gave them $50 gift cards for groceries,” said Gretchen Allen, Human Resources Director of Rolling HIlls Casino. The remaining $3,514.83 was distributed to following charities: Corning Christian Assistance, Just for Children, Tehama County Reading Council, Alternatives to Violence and Wings of Eagles.
“I am very proud of the Christmas Spirit of our employees,” said Tribal Chairman Andy Freeman. “Their enthusiastic dedication to the community made this fundraiser a success every year since we opened the Casino, and this has been the best year yet.”
