Before the January 21 Vegas Golden Knights game at T-Mobile Arena, Downtown Las Vegas CEO Derek Stevens presented a donation of $100k to the Lil’ Knights Cross-Ice Program on behalf of his property, the D Las Vegas. An official partner of the team and a proponent for youth sports in the Las Vegas Valley, Stevens’ contribution will continue to bring hockey dreams to life for the developing players in our city. To date, 1,307 players have enrolled in the program at one of Vegas Golden Knight’s three partner rinks.
Stevens – decked out in a custom-made Vegas Golden Knights jacket – took to the ice with his wife, Nicole, to give a giant check to Vegas Golden Knights President Kerry Bubolz. The Lil’ Knights Cross-Ice Program is an all year round introductory hockey program for skaters ages four and up. The program is for kids who have completed the Skating Academy and are ready to learn the fundamentals and team elements related to the exciting game of ice hockey.
the D is the official Downtown Las Vegas partner for the Vegas Golden Knights, which includes hosting their annual Fan Fest; throwing thrilling viewing parties at LONGBAR at the D and Downtown Las Vegas Events Center; and holding various player appearances and special events throughout the season.
