Sycuan Casino Resort on Thursday said it has received the prestigious Entertainment and Recreation Industry Award from the San Diego East County Chamber of Commerce's 2020 Business of the Year Awards.
Each year for more than 100 years, the SDEC Chamber has recognized organizations that exhibit outstanding customer service, maintain a positive reputation and ethics, consistently deliver high-quality services or products, and make a lasting impact on the community.
Sycuan has been a member of the SDEC Chamber for more than 10 years.
The resort has partnered with the Chamber on several initiatives and events over the years, including the Annual Grip It & Rip It Golf Tournament, the Annual Installation and Awards Dinner and the Women in Leadership Luncheon.
“For more than a decade, we have been a proud supporter and dedicated partner of the East County Chamber of Commerce,” Rob Cinelli, general manager at Sycuan Casino Resort, said in a statement. “Together, we have a shared commitment to the success and longevity of businesses that serve the community in the East County region.

The partnership allows both organizations the opportunity to educate and serve the community in a positive way.”
Wilson lauded the Sycuan organization for creating what he described as a safe, friendly and relaxing environment for the 109th Annual East County Honors Awards Gala to be filmed at the resort.
“Even during the pandemic, the partnership between both organizations allowed for individuals and businesses in the East County community to be recognized for their accomplishments in 2020,” Wilson continued. “We are proud to have Sycuan Casino Resort as a Diamond Level Chairman's Club Member of the San Diego Regional East County Chamber of Commerce.”
