Lake Las Vegas Live and veteran broadcaster Tony Cordasco have teamed up again this holiday season to host the annual Dasco Sweater Drive at Lake Las Vegas.
And the community will host several holiday-themed events in December, including Lake Las Vegas’ annual Santa Cruise, Ugly Sweater fashion show, Rudolph Neon Golf Cart Parade and a New Year’s Eve fireworks display over the lake. New and gently used adult-sized sweaters are being collected at all Lake Las Vegas amenities through Jan. 1.
“We are pleased to partner with Tony Cordasco again this year to host the Dasco Sweater Drive and give back to those in need,” said Andy Gil, director of media for Lake Las Vegas. “We are committed to helping the Las Vegas Rescue Mission achieve its mission and provide support for those who need it most this holiday season.”
The Las Vegas Rescue Mission, located in downtown Las Vegas, is a nonprofit group that feeds and helps provide shelter and necessities to homeless men, women and children in the valley. The group provides approximately 30,000 meals every month, with other supplies and clothing to those in need.
“The holidays are a great time to gather with friends and family and our events will celebrate the holiday spirit and season,” Gil said. “Residents and guests are invited to join in the Lake Las Vegas festivities, explore the community, and embrace the holiday cheer.”
