PALA, CA – The Pala Band of Mission Indians announced today it will be sponsoring the fourth annual “Day at the Races” at the Del Mar race track. The $2,500 donation will go toward providing meal boxes for seniors living in poverty in San Diego County.


The Angel’s Depot, the charity hosting the event, also promotes community integration efforts to help impoverished seniors restore their sense of dignity. They also inform the elderly about the resources and services that they are eligible to receive.


 “The Angel’s Depot has been a reliable and generous source of senior citizen assistance programs for several years in San Diego County,” said Robert H. Smith, Chairman of the Pala Band of Mission Indians. “Seniors in our community, especially those with little means of financial support, deserve our attention and care. The Pala Band of Mission Indians is proud to work with The Angel’s Depot to aid these noble efforts and to advance such a worthy cause.”


The “Day at the Races” festivities will take place in the Il Palio Turf Club at 4:00 PM on August 13th. It will be followed by a free “Soft Pack” Indie Rock Concert for all attendees.

The Pala Band of Mission Indians consists of 1,117 members with 650 living on the reservation along the Palomar Mountain range, located along 5,000 square miles of California’s desert and approximately 30 miles northeast of San Diego on Interstate 15.
