About Billy Bob’s Texas:
Located in the heart of the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District, the 100,000 square foot cattle barn became Billy Bob’s Texas in 1981. Since then more than 17 million visitors have enjoyed live entertainment and real bull riding at “The World’s Largest Honky Tonk”.

The facility can hold 6,000 rowdy patrons on a given night and has been host to hundreds of musical acts, from Alan Jackson to ZZ Top. On Fridays and Saturdays, the venue also features live bull riding – a step up from the mechanical variety. It seems like an unlikely source for a series that has sold millions of albums.

❤ Support Heart Kids with Steps at Children’s Heart Foundation’s 17th Annual Walk with the Heart of a Child ❤

 

Children’s Heart Foundation Steps It Up for 2020 with New Location and New Date for 17th Annual
Walk with the Heart of a Child
Springs Preserve to Host Annual Walk to Benefit Heart Kids in Southern Nevada on March 21

Children’s Heart Foundation hits 2020 with a stride, gearing up for big moves for the 17th Annual Walk with the Heart of a Child.  For 2020, the annual family walk moves to historic Springs Preserve, giving walkers a true outdoor space to lace up their sneakers, get those steps in and support the one in 100 (or 40,000) children in the United States who are born with a congenital heart defect (CHD) each year.  These 40,000 annual cases make congenital heart defects the leading cause of illness and death in the first year of life. Aiming to raise both awareness and much need funding to fight what can be a deadly pediatric disease, Children’s Heart Foundation invites all Las Vegans to participate in the 17th Annual Walk with the Heart of a Child on Saturday, March 21, 2020.  This annual fun walk through Springs Preserve (333 S. Valley View Blvd. Las Vegas) allows participants to walk in celebration or in remembrance of the young lives affected by congenital heart defects throughout the Las Vegas community.

The morning of fun and awareness kicks off at 7 a.m. with registration, check-in, Kids Zone and vendor booths, followed by the opening ceremonies at 8 a.m.  The Walk begins at 8:30 a.m. followed by individual and team awards.  All Children’s Heart Foundation supporters and walkers can stay at Springs Preserve once the walk is complete for a day of free family fun including “Jump! The Ultimate Dog Show” at 11 a.m. in the Big Springs Amphitheater and general admission to Springs Preserve (does not include special events, Butterfly Habitat or train rides).

Registration is $25 for adults and $15 for active-duty military, students, seniors and virtual walkers (those who cannot attend the event or physically participate). Individuals who raise $100 or more will receive an event t-shirt with additional prizes including baseball hat ($250 level), Bluetooth speaker ($500 level), YETI tumbler ($750 level) or Bluetooth wireless headphones ($1000 level).  Children’s Heart Foundation welcomes First Foundation Bank as a Heart of Gold sponsor for 2020.  Additional sponsorships and vendor booths are available for Walk with the Heart of a Child.

Research, education and family assistance are at the heart of Children’s Heart Foundation’s mission.  In the United States, CHD is 60 times more prevalent than childhood cancer, and nearly twice as many children die each year as die from all forms of childhood cancers combined. Research, still grossly underfunded in the field of pediatric cardiology, is the greatest hope for children living with a CHD a chance to live long, healthy lives due to medical and surgical advances and expert care. It is the hope this annual event continues to improve the level of care provided to those impacted by CHD.

A collaboration between Three Square Food Bank, MGM Resorts International (MGM Resorts) and Nevada Public Radio results in 104,305 meals donated to people in Southern Nevada who are food insecure. According to Feeding America, currently one in eight Nevadans is affected by hunger.

During Nevada Public Radio’s 2019 fall membership campaign, new and renewing members had an option to donate meals to Three Square in lieu of receiving traditional thank you gifts, with MGM Resorts wholly covering the value of the donated meals. Upon completion of the campaign, 104,305 meals were provided by MGM Resorts to Three Square–Southern Nevada’s only food bank, which provides food assistance to the residents of Lincoln, Nye, Esmeralda and Clark counties.

“Every year, our neighbor organizations in Southern Nevada show their true colors with generosity and compassion,” said Brian Burton, president and CEO of Three Square. “MGM Resorts and Nevada Public Radio members opened their hearts to the families that we feed, and we are honored and grateful for their kindness and contribution to the fight against food insecurity in our community.”

Three Square Food Bank’s Call Center Offers Hope to Food Insecure Seniors This Holiday Season

Three Square Food Bank’s Call Center Offers Hope to Food Insecure Seniors This Holiday Season   
Hotline helps connect seniors with food assistance and resources

The holiday season is in full swing, but it’s not always joyful for the estimated 24,000 seniors in Southern Nevada who are food insecure. Three Square Food Bank encourages those 60 years of age and older who need assistance to call 702-765-4030 Monday-Friday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., where they will speak with a caring Advocate to determine which program, service or resource is best for them.

“The issue of hunger and isolation among seniors is a very real problem,” said Lisa Segler, Director of Strategic Initiatives at Three Square. “In a recent survey of food insecure seniors in our community, more than 30 percent reported having depression and nearly 48 percent reported experiencing loneliness. Through our Senior Hunger Programs we want to reach those folks who may be struggling and show them that they are not alone.”

Those who reach out to Three Square’s Call Center can be connected with a number of options that are available through the nonprofit’s Senior Hunger Programs and community partners, including:

Golden Groceries
With the help of Three Square’s community partners, Golden Groceries provides delicious, healthy and supplemental groceries at no cost to food insecure seniors. The program restores choice and dignity to seniors by enabling them to choose from an available inventory as well as the amount and type of food that meet their specific nutritional needs. Groceries, including lean proteins, whole grains and fresh produce, are available.

Golden Groceries locations can be found at multiple places across Southern Nevada and have special days and times dedicated to seniors to ensure they have a pleasant experience and avoid long lines.

More than 7,000 seniors access Golden Groceries in the valley, which includes rural communities.

Community Meal Programs
In addition to Golden Groceries, Three Square can provide information about community meal programs for seniors across the valley, including weekly dinner sites at the local VFW Post 10047 and lunch sites at New Beginnings Ministries.

In addition to providing healthy, hot meals, community meals provide opportunities for fellowship with friends, games and access to other community resources. These types of connections may be even more meaningful to seniors during the holidays, and this is a great way the community can pull together to take care of one another.

For more information about the finding the nearest Golden Groceries location or additional resources, please call 702-765-4030.

The celebration of Diamond’s career will include performances from an impressive list of contemporary artists to be announced at a later date.

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! Once you have entered, attempting to leave without the lamp will result in your demise! Do you have what it takes to follow in the footsteps of the King of Thieves? Find the magic lamp and make your escape in time!

Rumplestiltskin:
Five Dollars-Five Minutes-Five Clues! Can you handle the POWER Room? Rumplestiltskin is his name. The mystery at hand is his game. Solve the clues within for your enchanted life to begin! Will you escape in time or end up entrapped by his rhyme?
