LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Lake Las Vegas is celebrating this summer with a community-wide charitable campaign, “Summer of Wishes,” to benefit the Make-A-Wish® Southern Nevada.
The campaign officially kicked off on June 21 at a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the grand opening of the Lake Las Vegas Water Sports Aqua Park.
“It is heartwarming to support Make-A-Wish,” Winterton said. “We hope this season-long project makes a difference in the lives of children in Las Vegas Southern Nevada who are battling critical illnesses.”
Throughout the summer, Seasons Grocery will be participating in a round-up program where customers can choose to round up to the nearest dollar and donate their change to Make-A-Wish.
Those interested in donating can also purchase a Make-A-Wish star for $1 at Seasons Grocery, Reflection Bay Golf Club, Lake Las Vegas Water Sports, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and BellaLinda Gelateria Italiana. All proceeds will go directly to the foundation’s local chapter.
“This kind of initiative is so important because Make-A-Wish relies solely on private donations,” said Scott Rosenzweig, vice president of mission advancement at Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada. “Lake Las Vegas is offering a fantastic opportunity for us to get involved with the community and gain awareness for such a great cause.”
Community members can also donate this summer at donation boxes, which will be placed throughout Lake Las Vegas.
Donation boxes will be available at Seasons Grocery, the Aqua Park, Reflection Bay Golf Club and the Lake Las Vegas Sports Club.
