PORTERVILLE, CA – The Tule River Tribe and Eagle Mountain Casino are partnering with California State University, Bakersfield (CSUB) to provide scholarships for students and athletes. The community partnership is also an opportunity for students and athletes to develop and grow, along with giving back to the community of Bakersfield.

“On behalf of the Roadrunner family at California State University, Bakersfield, please accept our congratulations and warm wishes on this momentous occasion,” said Lynnette Zelezny, President of California State University, Bakersfield. “CSUB is honored to work with the Tule River Tribe of California and Eagle Mountain Casino, steadfast partners in the mission to expand prosperity and opportunity for our region’s families.

“Investing back to the community has always been a part of what makes us ‘The People’s Casino’ at Eagle Mountain Casino,” said Matthew Mingrone, General Manager at Eagle Mountain Casino. “As many residents of South Tulare County and Kern County attend CSUB or are alumni of CSUB, it made the decision very easy for us to support their program. This partnership represents a significant milestone for Eagle Mountain Casino, the Tule River Tribe, and Cal State University, Bakersfield. By coming together, we aim to support local sports programs, enhance educational opportunities, and foster community engagement.”

The Tule River Tribe has been generous in supporting several community organizations. The relocation into the city reinforces its ability to influence the community positively. For 27 years, Eagle Mountain Casino has donated to many local events and charitable organizations.
