Valley View Casino & Hotel Selected to Receive “2013 Compassionate Workplace” Award
(ABC 10 News video)
The Jenna Druck Center helps over 500 bereaved families from our region every year, as they have been doing for the past 17 years since their Founder Dr. Ken Druck decided to honor his daughter, Jenna. Each year, the Center selects an area employer who has demonstrated exemplary support for its employees and their families. This year, after the tragic death of his 5-year-old daughter Bella, Bill Noble did not know where to turn. Distraught beyond words, Bill and his wife Sheri discovered a few angels in their midst. The Jenna Druck Center became a lifeline of hope and support for the Nobles, as did Valley View Casino & Hotel where Bill is a Team Member. Not only did his fellow Team Members donate their time to allow him more time off, the powers-that-be at Valley View Casino & Hotel including General Manager Bruce Howard, Vice President of Human Resources Judy Wright and Vice President of Marketing and Hotel Operations Mike Tansley and their entire teams, as well as President and CEO of the San Pasqual Casino Development Group Inc. Joe Navarro, Vice President Al Cope and the San Pasqual Tribe provided the kind of love, understanding and support that has allowed the Nobles to begin their long healing journey.
Because of their heroic support, the staff, volunteers and Board of Directors of The Jenna Druck Center proudly selected Valley View Casino & Hotel to receive their “2013 Compassionate Workplace” award.
“We are humbled that Valley View Casino & Hotel will be receiving this award. Our hearts go out to the Noble family and words cannot express how sorry we are for their loss,” said Bruce Howard. “Thank you to all 1,000 of our Valley View Casino & Hotel Team Members and The Jenna Druck Center for all of the support they have shown during this tragic time.”
