Lake Las Vegas Supports Las Vegas Nonprofits

Annual Pets & Pancakes event raises money for two local charities

Lake Las Vegas, the 2020 Best of Las Vegas Gold Winner for master plan communities, recently made donations to two local nonprofit organizations from its annual Pets & Pancakes event.

“Lake Las Vegas loves animals,” said Patrick Parker, president of Raintree Investment Corporation which is developing Lake Las Vegas. “Whether you’re seeing them in nature throughout the community, driving with their owners in their golf carts or walking on the miles of trails throughout Lake Las Vegas, you are always in for a treat. It is our honor to share our love of animals with organizations that help our four-legged friends.”

Donations were made to the Nevada SPCA and Opportunity Village to support their work assisting both four-legged and two-legged members of the community.

“We participated in the Pets & Pancakes event and loved seeing all the animal lovers showcasing their dogs in the parade and supporting local pet organizations, including ours,” said Lori Heeran, executive director of Nevada SPCA. “We appreciate the ongoing support from Lake Las Vegas and its generous residents.”

Bo Thomas, Lake Las Vegas’ longtime director of security, presented the donations on behalf of Lake Las Vegas.

“Bo and his team help at all of our events, and he loves seeing hard-working community organizations like Nevada SPCA and Opportunity Village lifted up by the kindness of our residents and fans,” said Parker.

Lake Las Vegas contributes to numerous Southern Nevada charitable organizations. The upcoming Lake Las Vegas Golf & Food Fest September 3-5 will benefit Project 150, an organization that supports homeless youth in Southern Nevada. For information and tickets, visit
