Spirit Mountain Casino celebrates 20 yr partnership with the Rose Festival

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Spirit Mountain Casino is celebrating its 20th year as a partner with the Portland Rose Festival.

Once again, they will be represented with a float in the Grand Floral Parade.

Back in the mid to late 90s, the casino and the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde recognized the promotional value of the title sponsorship. Through the years, tribe members saw something else evolve as well, a partnership and friendship.

The tribe’s community has also fundraised tens of millions of dollars for a wide variety of grants that provide artwork around the Portland Metro area, and most recently the name of Tilikum Crossing.

Tribe members led the procession at the crossing’s grand opening, and turned it into a celebration.

For this year’s parade, that celebration will continue, with a nod to the past.

In addition to artwork, the Spirit Mountain Community Fund provides grants for healthcare, education, and public safety.
