From today through Oct. 31, the Discovery Days campaign at the 3,500-acre Mountain’s Edge master-planned community in southwestern Las Vegas highlights participating builders’ promotions and incentives and several nonprofit organizations’ community-wide events at the 80-acre Exploration Park at Mountain’s Edge.
“Discovery Days events raise money and awareness for worthwhile causes while introducing new people to the wealth of residential offerings at one of the country’s top master planned communities,” said Deonna Stocker, manager of Information Center Operations for Mountain’s Edge.
“It’s truly a win-win for homebuyers, our builders — the industry’s best — and nonprofit partners and the entire community. A bonus for Mountain’s Edge residents is the events encourage people to come together, meet their neighbors and support local charities.”
