SAN DIEGO, CA – Sycuan Casino Resort presented members of the San Diego Pride team with a check for $25,000 in support of the upcoming San Diego Pride Festival and Parade. These funds will be used to support San Diego Pride’s year-round programs.
“We are honored to support and uplift LGBTQ+ voices, advocating for an inclusive environment that welcomes all with open arms,” said Cody J. Martinez, Chairman, Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation. “Together, we will continue to uphold our commitment to promoting a society that embraces unity and acceptance.”
Sycuan’s support for San Diego Pride dates back to 2014 and this will be their seventh year participating in the parade event, with two of those offering support for their virtual programs due to the pandemic. This year, Sycuan expects 100 team members to march in the upcoming parade festivities.
“San Diego Pride is thrilled to grow our long-term partnership with Sycuan this year,” said Sarafina Scapicchio, Deputy Executive Director of San Diego Pride. “Their generous investment will not only support our community’s pride celebration, which highlights the vast diversity of the people living in Southern California, but also San Diego Pride’s free year-round education and advocacy programs that support our LGBTQIA+ community members 365 days a year.”
