LEMOORE – Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino recently hosted its community breakfast and presented a check for $3,670 to United Health Centers (UHC) Foundation, a private non-profit organization providing resources in support of community programs that extend beyond the scope of primary healthcare services in the Central Valley’s underserved communities.
A total of $1,835 was raised at the door of the fundraising breakfast and Tachi Palace Hotel & Casino and the Santa Rosa Rancheria Tribe matched the amount, bringing the grand total of the donation to $3,670. Tribal Chairman Leo Sisco, Tachi Palace Assistant General Manager Bill Davis, and Marketing Director Rojelio Morales were on hand to present the check to Pedro Santana, Manager of United Health Centers Foundation.
“Our mission is to provide resources to help improve the health and quality of life for members of the community and to support community programs that extend beyond the scope of primary health care,” said Santana. “This money will go towards programs that support the well-being of the youth and families that live in our Central Valley communities.”
The UHC Foundation also partners with the YMCA to send nearly 100 children to summer camp each year, where elementary aged students gain leadership, social and communication skills. The non-profit organization has expanded its Patient Transportation Program that provides rides for UHC patients to and from their health center appointments.
