Park Place Infiniti holds benefit for Shade Tree

Park Place Infiniti is sponsoring a monthlong bottled water drive for Shade Tree. Throughout July, the dealership will be accepting donations of cases of water.

Its goal is to collect at least 364 cases of water, one for every resident that Shade Tree can shelter.

Shade Tree is a nonprofit organization that aims to improve the lives of women, children and their animals who are affected by domestic violence.

The bottled water drive is part of the Circle of Excellence program that Park Place brought to the local Infiniti dealership. Circle of Excellence is an employee-led program dedicated to raising money for worthwhile charities. The employee group plans community outreach projects throughout the year. Park Place employees also will make donations to the drive.

Donations can be brought to the dealership, 5605 W. Sahara Ave., from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday.

“Both Park Place and Shade Tree have a long history of helping the community,” said Mark Kinard, sales director at Park Place Infiniti. “For the last 25 years, Park Place has been committed to supporting community organizations, and we are proud to hold this bottled water drive for Shade Tree, which has been providing shelter to women and children in Las Vegas for over 20 years. This drive is being spearheaded by our employees, and we hope the public will join with us by dropping off a case of water to support the women and children of Shade Tree.”

Founded in 1987 by Ken Schnitzer, Park Place Dealerships is based in Texas and represents several luxury brands . In June 2012, Park Place purchased the Infiniti dealership in Las Vegas.
