Tachi Palace & Hotel raise $12,900 for Links for Life at monthly breakfast

Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino recently hosted its October Community Breakfast and presented a check for $12,900 to Links for Life, a non-profit organization focusing on the positive, that assists people and families affected by breast cancer through programs, services, and education.

The breakfast, hosted by the Tachi Palace Hotel & Casino, raised $2,615, and the Santa Rosa Rancheria Tribe matched the amount for a total of $5,230. Also, the Tachi Palace’s Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign raised $7,670 July 1 through October 27. The campaign consisted of selling “Tachi Thinks Pink” shirts at Lino’s Gift Shop for $10 each. Those funds also were donated to Links for Life for a total of $12,900.

Tachi Palace General Manager Willie Barrios was on hand to present the check to Kathy Mittleider, President of Kings County Links for Life.

“This generous donation during breast cancer awareness month is greatly appreciated, and we are honored to be the recipient of the community breakfast funds as well as ‘Tachi Thinks Pinks’ t-shirts,” said Mittleider. “We will use this money to assist in our outreach efforts and ongoing programs and continue to help battle breast cancer by meeting the needs of our community.”

More than 500 people attended the fundraising breakfast including Tachi sponsored 2017 local race car drivers and racers from Lemoore Raceway and Tulare Thunder Bowl Raceway.

“It’s inspiring to see members of the community rally around this organization,” said Barrios, “and it is truly an honor to present Links for life with funds to support their important mission.”

The next community breakfast will be held Friday, November 17, and will benefit Toys for Tots. Attendees are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy or donate a minimum of $5 to attend the breakfast. Tachi Palace hosts a monthly community breakfast that features a breakfast buffet, informative community news, and business networking, as well as raffle prizes.
