  • Guided Tour of Graton Casino & Social Hour at Tony’s, Feb. 15, 5-7 p.m.

    Greg Sarris, Tribal Chairman of the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria, welcomes us to one of Sonoma County’s top destinations and its largest employer.  In addition to the standard visit of the game floor, lounges, restaurants, and event center at the casino as well as the luxurious hotel and meeting spaces at the newly opened convention center, Greg will guide us through behind-the-scenes areas like the amenities for employees and—if Lady Luck is with us!—the high-roller room including its elegant powder room.  After the tour, Greg will entertain questions.  He has served as Chairman for 12 years.  He led the Tribe to sovereign status; he led the federal, state, and local negotiations that made the casino possible; and he led the initial construction as well as the ongoing expansions.

    After the tour, we will meet at Tony’s North Beach (in the casino) for a social hour.  Note:  Ticket price covers the tour and appetizers but not drinks.

    Meet at main entrance to Graton Casino, 288 Golf Course Drive West, Rohnert Park

    Schedule:  5:00 – 6:15, Site tour followed by Q & A; 6:15 – 7:00 Social hour

    Tickets:  $25 early bird (by Feb. 1), $35 after Feb. 1
