IMMOKALEE – Seminole Casino Hotel Immokalee presented Guadalupe Center with a check for $7,500, funds raised from the November 2 Gin Blossoms concert at Seminole Casino Hotel. All proceeds from the concert went to Guadalupe Center, which provides educational programs for more than 1,300 children in Immokalee from infancy through high school and has a 100 percent college acceptance rate.
Guadalupe Center received the donation during a special check presentation event held at Seminole Casino Hotel on Dec. 17.
“The Gin Blossoms concert was a wonderful, fun event and we are grateful to have been the recipient of its proceeds. Our staff and volunteers met many wonderful people, who in addition to enjoying the great music, were also interested in helping the children of Immokalee,” said Dawn Montecavo, Guadalupe Center President. “Seminole Casino Hotel is an important community partner, and we can’t thank them enough for everything they do for the Guadalupe Center.”
“Seminole Casino Hotel is proud to support Guadalupe Center and the important, life-changing services the center provides,” said Tony Alves, General Manager of Seminole Casino Hotel. “The Guadalupe Center staff and volunteers are making a real difference in the lives of students and their families in Immokalee.”
