River Rock Casino is dedicated to developing strong community ties and active involvement with local community and regional organizations and events. Involvement in an event should develop good will and sound relationships, strengthen the casino's relationship with the community, help enhance the business operations of River Rock Casino and partner organizations and shall not conflict with the casino's responsible gaming policy.
Sponsorship requests from organizations within our market and community shall be reviewed monthly by the casino’s sponsorship committee. To ensure we have enough time to properly evaluate, respond and develop marketing plans in support of your event, please submit your sponsorship request no less than 60 days prior to the event’s commencement.
The decision process for sponsorships may take up to 30 days. Our decisions are determined by our annual budget and other sponsorship commitments. Organizations making requests shall be notified by mail of the final decision.
