JAMUL INDIAN VILLAGE CELEBRATES THE RELAUNCH OF THE JAMUL CASINO WITH THE SUPPORT OF THE LOCAL COMMUNITY
JAMUL, CALIFORNIA (August 7, 2018)— With a guest list of elected officials, community leaders, and thousands of loyal customers, the Jamul Indian Village celebrated the official re-launch of the Jamul Casino on Saturday, August 4, 2018 with a special block party celebration.
“We’re celebrating not just the change in the casino’s name, but our Tribe’s success in achieving our dream of independently owning and managing our own casino,” Jamul Indian Village Chairwoman Erica M. Pinto said. “This day was decades in the making, and we are so grateful that the community was there to celebrate with us.
The day kicked off with two Jamul Casino themed giveaways. Every guest who walked in the door received a Sweetwater treat at the casino’s chocolate bar prize giveaway in Loft 94 Beer Garden, with one in four chocolate bars giving away $20 in cash inside and one of the bars holding a grand prize of $5,000 in cash. Guests also played their way to earn a limited-edition Jamul Casino iconic droplet logoed watch designed to commemorate the occasion.
At Tony Gwynn’s Sports Pub, a sold-out crowd celebrated Mr. Padre with a Tony Gwynn-themed night, complete with a buffet of Tony Gwynn’s favorite dishes, the launch of Tony Gwynn Jr.’s newest beer, and appearances by Alicia Gwynn and Tony Gwynn Jr.
And at Prime Cut steakhouse, Certified Master Chef® Ron DeSantis took over the kitchen to deliver a world-class culinary experience for invited guests, including state and local elected officials and community leaders.
The party went late into the night, as Alicia Gwynn kicked the night off with a special performance at JIV e Lounge, followed by an evening of dancing as Southern California’s premiere dance band, Pop Vinyl, took the stage.
“The celebration was more than we could have dreamed of,” Pinto said. “The community really came out to celebrate, with cars full of guests lining up to join us on our special day. We’re grateful to have their support in our continued efforts to create an economic engine not only for our Tribe, but for the entire East County.”
