The Mandalay Bay digital sign went dark for about four minutes around 10 p.m. on October 1, 2018 and came back to display “#VegasStronger” for at least 30 minutes. Some Las Vegas shooting survivors expected more, however.
The Las Vegas Victims’ Fund will complete its payouts this month.
The company that bartenders say hired them for the Route 91 Harvest music festival went out of business, resulting in an investigation surrounding its hiring practices and many bartenders claiming they didn’t receive proper pay.
Contributions from the Southern Nevada gaming, tourism and entertainment industry accounted for almost 40 percent of the $31.4 million collected by the Las Vegas Victims’ Fund, organizers of the fund said Friday.
Three Las Vegas shooting survivors on Sunday received the first disbursements from Route91Strong, a nonprofit that helps victims of the Oct. 1 shooting.
The way Jennifer Holub sees it, there are three sources of funds for victims of the Oct. 1 shooting, and “everyone’s basically screwing everyone.”
Assistance is available to families of people killed in the shooting and those who were either hospitalized or required medical treatment as a result of injuries suffered in the mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival.
