Nevada’s Big Give, a 24-hour online effort to raise money for nonprofits all over the state is set for Thursday, April 25. Since it’s an online effort, many may assume that there’s nothing to see, nowhere to go.
But there is.
Throughout the day, local celebrities and community leaders are slated to visit Nevada’s Big Give Headquarters in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood, 3663 Las Vegas Blvd. South, to make contributions to the campaign. Additionally, select restaurants will feature light bites at the headquarter location for guests and volunteers. All day, the center’s exterior, Strip-side LED screens are set to display the total amount of money raised.
In its inaugural year, Nevada’s Big Give raised more than $413,000 for local nonprofits. This year, the organization hopes to raise $1 million.
The day’s scheduled appearances include:
10 a.m. BMX rider and TV personality Ricardo Laguna
