Fantasy Springs Resort Casino will receive  the 2017 Large Business of the Year Award (East District)  from Republican state Sen. Jeff Stone.

“Fantasy Springs, including their tribe and staff, are being honored as a pillar in our community,” said Stone in a prepared statement. “Their dedication to the Coachella Valley is limitless.”

The award will be presented to the popular East Valley Resort Casino on Friday, Feb. 9.

Stone will present the business with a Senate Proclamation to mark the event.

The presentation, which is open to the public, will take place at 2 p.m. in the 12th Floor Lounge of the hotel at Fantasy Springs.

Fantasy Springs Resort Casino is a privately operated business of The Cabazon Band of Mission Indians and employs over 1,200 people in the Coachella Valley.  Fantasy Springs Casino opened in 1995 and underwent an expansion in 2000.

Fantasy Springs Resort Casino expanded further with a 250-room, four star hotel accommodations and Special Events Center in 2004.

It features Vegas-style gambling options, dining, world-class entertainment, golf or poolside lounging and more. Amenities include a bowling alley and an outdoor pool/hot tub.
