San Carlos Apache Gaming Enterprise donates $5,000 to local Fire Department in the wake of the Margo Fire

SCAT and SCAGE is committed to supporting our local and surrounding communities 

San Carlos, Ariz. – As Arizona braces for another year of devastating wildfires.  One local community has already felt the impact early last month.  According to the Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management, the human-caused Margo Fire, started the morning of April 8, burning through salt cedar, grass and brush in the San Pedro River bottom near the town of Dudleyville. The fire burned 1,148 acres and 12 primary structures, according to the Department of Forestry.

The San Carlos Gaming Enterprise who owns and operates the Apache Sky Casino near the area worked with the Dudleyville local fire department leaders to see how we can assist in their cleanup efforts.  It was determined in a unanimous decision that the San Carlos Gaming Enterprise would donate a monetary amount of $5,000 to assist with the Margo Fire cleanup and debris removal.

On May 6, 2021 the Gaming Enterprise and some of the Dudleyville Volunteer Fire Department representatives held a check presentation at the Apache Sky Casino to show our commitment and dedication to supporting our local communities. One very heroic couple we would like give a special thanks for attending is Mr. Pedro Gallego and Mrs. Marisa Gallego.  Mr. Pedro Gallego is a volunteer firefighter and was one of families that lost their home in the fire.  We are very humble and honored to have such great community members that can come together in a time a need and overcome all obstacles.  The San Carlos Gaming Enterprise would like to thank everyone who has helped during these tough times and send our sympathies to all that was affected.
