MORONGO INDIAN RESERVATION, California (PRESS RELEASE) -- Bringing together community leaders, elected officials and other special guests, the new $250 million Morongo Casino, Resort & Spa celebrates the nearly-completed new property with a dedication ceremony designed to thank the community for its support throughout planning and construction. Scheduled to officially open on December 10, the Morongo Casino, Resort & Spa offers one of the largest casino floors in California, four-star caliber suites and rooms, multiple restaurant facilities, a nightclub, spa, convention facilities, and a pool oasis. The 685,000 square-foot hotel and casino is the largest economic development project undertaken by the tribe.

"This is a historic day for the Morongo tribe, as we unveil the new world of California gaming -- a first-class, full-service gaming, resort and entertainment experience that doesn't exist elsewhere in the state," said Morongo tribal chairman Maurice Lyons. "This pride-filled debut illustrates a tremendous amount of hard work and dedication, and underscores our support to the local community."

The property will directly and indirectly create more than 4,000 jobs and $1.4 billion in new goods and services purchased over the next five years. The Morongo tribe is currently the largest private sector employer in the Pass Area and provides economic stability to the reservation and surrounding communities of the Inland Empire. "This is a momentous occasion for the Morongo Band of Mission Indians, and a welcomed addition to the Inland Empire," said County Supervisor Marion Ashley.
