The Pechanga Band of Indians in Riverside County has donated $100,000 to the Monterey Park Lunar New Year Victims Fund, according to Pechanga.
As of late afternoon Wednesday, Jan. 25, the fund — on GoFundMe — had raised $721,822 on its way to a goal of $750,000, according to the site.
Pechanga officials, in announcing the most recent donation, said the gift sent the amount to more than $800,000.
Other donors to the fund include The Asian American Foundation, with $100,000; Panda Express, with $30,000; and Edison International, with $25,000, among many others.
Pechanga and Monterey Park have a partnership, officials saying that the city “opened its arms to Pechanga more than a decade ago to partake and contribute to the excitement of its Lunar New Year Festival.”
