Donor Spotlight

This month, we’d like to recognize Harrah’s Resort Southern California for their support of I Love A Clean San Diego’s volunteer programs and events. As a longtime supporter of our countywide cleanups, Harrah’s leads volunteer efforts at Buccaneer Beach in Oceanside and at Lake Wohlford with ILACSD each spring and fall. They also selected ILACSD to be the recipient of their charity slot tournament in April, which worked out great with the timing of ILACSD’s first ever matching campaign.

Thanks for all that you do for the community, Harrah’s!
