MAT FRANCO – MAGIC REINVENTED NIGHTLY
For the fourth year in a row, magician Mat Franco will team up with Sunny 106.5 to host a pet supply drive benefitting The Animal Foundation, Nevada’s largest open admission shelter. Visit any Las Vegas-area PetSmart location between Monday, Oct. 7 and Sunday, Nov. 10 to purchase and donate a minimum of $10 worth of items from the organization’s wish list, or a PetSmart gift card of equivalent value, and receive one complimentary ticket voucher to see MAT FRANCO – MAGIC REINVENTED NIGHTLY live onstage in the Mat Franco Theater at The LINQ Hotel + Experience.
Since 2016, the annual campaign to collect supplies and monetary gifts has raised more than $16,000 in animal care supplies and monetary gifts for The Animal Foundation, and has helped care for hundreds of lost, unwanted and abandoned animals at the shelter — the largest in Nevada. The America’s Got Talent winner expanded his partnership with The Animal Foundation this year to help promote shelter pet adoptions during the busy summer season. The campaign, featuring Mat in print, outdoor, radio and television advertising, strengthened Mat’s partnership with The Animal Foundation and his commitment to helping some of our city’s most vulnerable residents, and aimed to encourage valley residents to adopt and not shop when looking for a new pet.
