The tournament was May 16 at the Yocha Dehe Golf Club in Brooks and hosted by the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation.

“The Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation remains steadfast in our commitment to building strong, inclusive communities,” Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation Tribal Chairman Anthony Roberts said in a statement. “We are deeply honored to share the natural beauty of our ancestral homelands with our cherished partners. Together, we strive to raise vital funds to support the noble mission of ending hunger, ensuring that no one in our community goes without the nourishment they need. This cause is close to our hearts, and we are dedicated to making a lasting impact in the lives of those who need it most.”

The tournament was expected to raise at least $100,000 for the food bank that serves 400,000 residents monthly in Contra Costa and Solano counties.

“We are deeply grateful for the opportunity to support such a vital cause,” said Cache Creek Casino Resort General Manager and COO Kari Stout-Smith. “The incredible turnout and generous contributions at our second annual charity golf tournament have been truly heartwarming. Seeing our business and community partners come together to help end hunger and uplift the people of Northern California fills us with immense joy. It is an honor to be part of such a compassionate and dedicated community.”

Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano President and CEO Caitlin Sly said the donation will enable the food bank to provide 274,000 meals for the community.

“On behalf of the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano, we would like to thank Cache Creek Casino Resort for your generosity and continued support,” Sly said. “Your commitment to helping us fight food insecurity in our community will have a profound impact on our neighbors in need.”
