The entrance to the Rolling Hills Casino Buffet is now good enough to eat with the return of Santa’s Workshop Gingerbread House, an annual tradition that marks the start of the holiday season.
Another sweet holiday tradition is the announcement of contributions by the Rolling Hills Foundation to local organizations that strive to make Tehama County a safer, healthier and more educated community.
Over the past 15 years, the Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians contributed over $8 million to local organizations through the Rolling Hills Casino Foundation. This holiday season, the Foundation announced another $17,453 in grants to local schools and education programs.
The Foundation provided grants to Berrendos Middle School to purchase tables for its reading intervention program, Vina Elementary School for Classroom E-Readers, and Gerber Elementary School to send 5th and 6th graders to Whiskeytown Environmental Space Camp.
The Foundation also provided a grant to Red Bluff High School Performing Arts Center to purchase musical instruments for use by students who can’t afford to purchase their own.
Other grant recipients include Rape Crisis and Intervention, Gateway Science Museum, the Corning High School Softball Program, and the Chico State University Foundation/Sage Fund.
