From their annual participation in the San Pablo Adopt-a-Family program to their generous support of Luther Burbank Center for the Arts, LBC naming sponsor Lytton Rancheria – Lytton Band of Pomo Indians is philanthropically active and believes that well-funded service organizations are the key ingredient to a strong community. This belief allows such organizations to be a conduit for enhancing the artistic, educational, health, and overall quality of life experiences of our children, their families, and their teachers.
The Lytton Band has faced many challenges throughout its long history, from natural disaster to the termination of their Tribal status by the Federal government, which was reinstated in 1991 after a 30-year struggle. Since then, the Tribe has significantly improved the lives of their members through investment at the San Pablo Lytton Casino, among other business ventures, resulting in quality healthcare, housing, and education opportunities.
“I attended my first play ever – ‘Pinocchio’ – here at the Center when I was a child,” said Margie Mejia, the Tribe’s chairwoman. “It is a great honor for the Tribe to now be in a position to help create those experiences for other children and to help ensure that everyone, regardless of financial means, has access to the arts and education.”
Lytton Rancheria has been a stalwart supporter of LBC since 2010 and has generously contributed to the renovation of the eponymous Lytton Rancheria Grand Lobby, as well as the Center’s 2013 renovation of the Ruth Finley Person Theater.
Luther Burbank Center for the Arts is proud to have Lytton Rancheria – Lytton Band of Pomo Indians as its naming sponsor. The Board, staff and volunteers of LBC are deeply grateful to Lytton Rancheria for investing in our community, and in the Center’s mission to enrich, educate, and entertain.
