Keep Memory Alive to Honor Neil Diamond at 24th Annual

Power of Love® Gala, March 7, 2020

Las Vegas event shines spotlight on Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health
and raises funds for the fight against brain diseases. Tickets on sale now.

 

Keep Memory Alive will honor legendary singer-songwriter and musician Neil Diamond at the 24th annual Power of Love® gala on Saturday, March 7, 2020, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Tickets are on sale now at keepmemoryalive.org/power-of-love-2020.

 

Diamond, who announced his retirement from touring in 2018 after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, will appear at the highly anticipated evening benefitting Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health. The Power of Love® gala generates the majority of annual funding for the services, care and resources the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health provides to patients and their caregivers in the fight against neurocognitive diseases including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, multiple system atrophy, multiple sclerosis and more.

 

The celebration of Diamond’s career will include performances from an impressive list of contemporary artists to be announced at a later date. The evening will also feature exquisite cuisine from celebrity chefs, exciting live and silent auctions with one-of-a-kind products and experiences up for bid, and the presentation of the Keep Memory Alive Caregiver Hero Award.

 

“We’re honored to have the legendary Neil Diamond join us to celebrate his remarkable and wildly successful career and to bring awareness to the devastating diseases the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health researches and treats, including Parkinson’s,” said Keep Memory Alive Vice-Chairwoman and Co-Founder Camille Ruvo. “Nearly one million Americans suffer from Parkinson’s and the funds raised at the Power of Love® gala are critical in allowing us to provide these patients and those living with other neurological disorders with top-level care and their families with valuable caregiving resources.”

Throughout his illustrious and wide-ranging musical career as a singer, songwriter and performer, Diamond has had 38 Top 40 singles and sold over 130 million records worldwide. Perhaps best known for “Sweet Caroline,” his number one singles include: “Cracklin’ Rosie,” “Song Sung Blue,” “Longfellow Serenade,” “I’ve Been This Way Before,” “If You Know What I Mean,” “America,” “Yesterday’s Songs,” and “Heartlight.” Diamond’s extensive list of achievements includes induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and he recently received the Sammy Cahn Lifetime Achievement Award, the prestigious Kennedy Center Honor and the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

Once Upon a Time:
It seems as though Rumplestiltskin has stolen the fairytale artifacts. You must recover the artifacts and place them on the correct pedestals-if you are to escape the room in time. But beware-things are not always as they appear!

7 Dwarfs: The fairest one is in dire need! You must help the Seven Dwarfs undo the evil and bring back to life the fairest in the land! But be quick, before she’s gone forever!
Arabian Nights: In a far-off land, buried deep within a cave, lies a magic lamp capable of granting your every desire. But be warned!

Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Employees Volunteer at HELP of Southern Nevada for its Corporate Giving Event

 

RIPLEY’S BELIEVE IT OR NOT! EMPLOYEES VOLUNTEER AT HELP OF SOUTHERN NEVADA FOR ITS CORPORATE GIVING EVENT

On Monday, Oct. 7, Ripley’s Believe It or Not! visited HELP of Southern Nevada to volunteer on-site for its 2019 corporate giving event. All 103 of the company’s volunteers were tasked with various projects to benefit four significant programs at HELP of Southern Nevada.

Ripley’s Believe It or Not! donated a total of $25,000 to HELP of Southern Nevada, as well as the gift of their time, to benefit the following four programs within the organization: Baby First Services, Framing Hope Warehouse, “Living Beyond” Maternal Group Home and Shannon West Homeless Youth Center.

HELP’s employees excitedly welcomed the volunteers upon arrival while President and CEO of HELP, Fuilala Riley, directed the crowd into four groups. Each group was divided up to aid in four different facets of the non-profit’s services.

Volunteers helped package 30,000 diapers for HELP’s Diaper Bank and its Baby First Services, programs within the Emergency Resource Services Department. These programs assist pregnant and parenting individuals with their newborn children up to three years old.

At Shannon West Homeless Youth Center, 125 welcome bags were assembled for youths entering housing, which included undergarments, sweatpants, hygiene products and more. The welcome bags will provide residents with basic necessities they will use daily. Shannon West Homeless Youth Center provides services for at-risk youth that are homeless or may become homeless.

The Framing Hope Warehouse, a resource for local non-profits that need retail-based merchandise, was cleaned out in order to prepare for the upcoming 98.5 KLUC The Chet Buchanan Show Toy Drive as part of HELP’s Holiday Assistance program.

Finally, the last group was tasked with assembling an assortment of furniture for HELP’s “Living Beyond” Maternal Group Home, for pregnant and/or parenting mothers. A large portion of the monetary donation was allocated to provide new furniture and home accessories for the Maternal Group Home, as well as various items to further improve HELP’s programs and services such as diaper donations, hygiene products and more.

Following the morning festivities, Shannon West Homeless Youth Center residents, volunteers and HELP employees joined together for lunch inside the youth center. The residents were treated to an ice cream bar and received special raffle prizes, courtesy of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! staff.

Ripley’s Believe It or Not! recently celebrated its 100th anniversary. Cartoonist and adventurer Robert Ripley started it all in 1918 when he drew the first Ripley’s Believe It or Not! cartoon. Today, Ripley’s has over 100 family-friendly attractions in 10 countries, including Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Odditoriums, world-renowned Ripley’s Aquariums and traveling shows. In addition to its attractions, they have the popular Ripley’s Believe It or Not! television show and best-selling books. Ripley’s Believe It or Not! tells stories of people and places that are incredibly hard to believe, but undeniably true.

About Grant a Gift Autism Foundation

The mission of Grant a Gift Autism Foundation (GGAF) is to help children, young adults and their families master autism by providing assessment and treatment funding; combined with support services, vocational training and transition planning.

We provide family-centered care through one or more of our programs and services and help prepare individuals with autism to live as independent adults with functioning roles in our community.

We act as a community safety net by filling in treatment and funding gaps not covered by state and federal resources or insurance. Our organization achieves this by collaborating with other organizations, state agencies, or providers to give children with Autism Spectrum Disorder growing up in Nevada a better quality of life and future as they transition into adults.
