Helping at-risk children is the primary mission of the Rotary Club of Summerlin (Las Vegas). Proceeds from its Fourth Annual Mardi Gras on February 24, will fund projects that will assist this population.
According to the US Census Bureau, 23.7% of children under 18 in Las Vegas live below the poverty level in single-parent households; homeless; unaccompanied (live on their own without parents or family); or move frequently from hotel to hotel, apartment to apartment, or relative to relative.
The club provides clothing, health care, hygiene items, school lunches, school supplies, and classroom support through reading, writing, mentoring, and tutoring programs for at-risk children.
The Mardi Gras will be held at TPC Summerlin, 1700 Village Circle, Las Vegas, 89134. Funds will be raised through ticket sales, sponsorships, live and silent auctions, and drawings. In addition, there will be a jazz band, no-host bar, and a New Orleans-themed buffet. The event kicks off at 6 p.m. and there’s complimentary parking. Event information can be found at www.rotarysummerlin.org.
