TUCSON, Ariz. — Every July marks Casino Del Sol’s anniversary, and this year is an important milestone, the Sol of Tucson celebrates 25 amazing years. Tucson’s premier entertainment destination is celebrating with live entertainment, fireworks, giveaways and more, to recognize all they have accomplished in a quarter-century.
“We’ve grown so much over the last 25 years,” said Kimberly Van Amburg, CEO of Casino Del Sol. “Our hard work and commitment to provide Southern Arizona with the best in entertainment will continue to be our priority. We are looking forward to celebrating our employees and our guests who supported us through the years and can’t wait to see what the next 25 years holds.”
It all began 25 years ago when the Pascua Yaqui Tribe opened Tucson’s first casino, Casino of the Sun in 1994. Since then, the Pascua Yaqui Tribe’s hospitality and entertainment enterprise has grown tremendously to include Casino Del Sol and AVA Amphitheater in 2001, Del Sol Marketplace in 2005, the Resort, Spa and Conference Center at Casino Del Sol in 2011 and Sewailo Golf Club in 2013.
“Our 25th anniversary is a significant milestone that represents many accomplishments for our community. Over the last two and a half decades, we have built a hospitality enterprise from the ground up,” said Chairman of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe, Robert Valencia. “We are incredibly proud of what we built and are grateful for the continued support from our employees, guests, Tribal members, and the entire Tucson community.”
The growth continues into 2019 with Casino of the Sun’s new event center, the Sunset Room, and an expansion of Casino Del Sol’s Conference Center, both of which are now open. Scheduled to open late June is a new 73-space RV park and a new 151-room hotel, Estrella at Casino Del Sol, is scheduled to open this November.
