Harrah’s Resort Southern California has brought back its annual charitable program, “All-In 4 Change,” which will award $150,000 in grants to some of Southern California’s nonprofit organizations.

The “All-In 4 Change” program was created in 2015 to showcase the resort’s pride in and commitment to its community.

“Harrah’s Resort Southern California has always been on the forefront of giving back to organizations who strengthen their communities and bring about positive change,” said Bo Mazzetti, chairman of the Rincon Band of Luiseño Indians.

“We are extremely thankful for all of the community support we have received throughout these past 20 years.”

Since opening in 2002, Harrah’s Resort Southern California has donated a portion of its profits to the local community and charitable causes. To date, Harrah’s Resort Southern California has donated more than $4.3 million in cash and in-kind gifts to the community and charitable organizations as part of this ongoing commitment to giving back.

“We are humbled by the success of Harrah’s Resort Southern California since its inception 20 years ago, and it means the world to us to be able to give back to these deserving nonprofit organizations,” said Jill Barrett, senior vice president, and general manager. “We look forward to recognizing the local organizations that are truly making a difference in our communities during this year’s All-In 4 Change luncheon.”

Nonprofits from San Diego, Riverside, and Orange Counties are invited to apply for the program beginning July 1 through July 31.

Applications will be carefully reviewed by the judging committee and on Aug. 9, eligible applicants will be informed they made it to the next stage. Community members are encouraged to vote for their favorite nonprofits among the group of finalists from Aug. 15 – 29, and when the polls close, votes will be tabulated to count for 50 percent of the overall score.

The remaining 50 percent of the score will be determined by a selected committee at Harrah’s Resort Southern California.  Winners will be announced at the “All-In 4 Change” luncheon on Sept. 30, with the grant allocations and awards as follows:

  • 1st Place Grant: $55,000
  • 2nd Place Grant: $25,000
  • 3rd Place Grant: $15,000
  • 4th Place Grant:  $10,000
  • 5th Place Grant:  $5,000
  • 10 Honorable Mention Grants at $4,000 each
