LAKE FOREST, CA—Walking Shield, Inc. has devoted the last 25 years to improving the quality of life in American Indian communities.  In celebration of the organization’s Silver Anniversary, they will be hosting two major events at the Pechanga Resort and Casino in Temecula—a Benefit Golf Tournament on Monday, June 27, 2011 and a conference on Tuesday, June 28, 2011.  Since 1986, Walking Shield has assisted more than 40 tribes on 33 reservations across the United States.  

Silver Anniversary Golf Tournament-Monday, June 27th
The Golf Tournament will benefit Walking Shield’s American Indian Scholarships and other educational services.  The tournament will begin at 6:30 am at the Journey at Pechanga Golf Course. Cost for a single player is $175 and $700 for a foursome.  Co-sponsored by Southern California Edison’s Native American Alliance.

Silver Anniversary Conference-Tuesday, June 28th
The free conference will begin at 8:00 am at the Pechanga Resort Ballroom and will focus on issues surrounding healthcare, community infrastructure, housing relocation, education and eye care in American Indian communities. These basic needs are severely lacking within many tribes throughout the United States.  

Among the speakers is Maj. General Robert J. Kasulke of the US Army Reserve. The US military reserves play a significant role in assisting with health, housing and infrastructure projects on participating reservations.  Also featured will be Veronica Gutierrez, Vice President of Corporate Communications of Edison International, which has been a key partner in the success of Walking Shield’s Educational programming.  

For more information and sponsorship opportunities regarding these two events, please call (949) 639-0472 or email info@walkingshield.org.
