LEE CANYON’S FEEL GOOD FRIDAYS FUNDRAISING EVENT SERIES LAUNCHES MARCH 6, 2020

 

LEE CANYON’S FEEL GOOD FRIDAYS FUNDRAISING EVENT SERIES LAUNCHES MARCH 6, 2020

PROCEEDS FROM $25 LIFT TICKET SALES HELP SUPPORT THE HIGH FIVES FOUNDATION

 

 Lee Canyon, southern Nevada’s premier winter and summer outdoor destination and a POWDR company, announced today their wildly successful Play Forever fundraiser, Feel Good Fridays, kicks off March 6, 2020. On Fridays in March, lift tickets are $25, and $5 of every sale is donated to the High Fives Foundation, a nonprofit that provides support to mountain sports athletes with life-altering injuries. Since Feel Good Friday’s launch in 2017, Lee Canyon has raised more than $50,000 for the nonprofit. Feel Good Friday lift tickets are available at the base lodge the day of the event.

“Last year, Lee Canyon raised just over $20,000 thanks to the enthusiasm of our local community. This year we want to match that number,” said Jim Seely, Lee Canyon’s director of marketing and technology. Seely explained that fundraising efforts in Las Vegas had helped athletes faced with overwhelming injuries like mountain biker Landon McGauley and swimmer Meredith Koch.

Feel Good Fridays include live music, giveaways, and other special features. “Typically, March at Lee Canyon means terrific spring skiing conditions, making it an ideal time to get outside in the Spring Mountains,” said Seely. “But beyond fun, we are coming together to help people with life-altering injuries get back to doing what they love with the people they love.”

Lee Canyon’s Play Forever is a commitment to protect the environment and enable participation as the resort strives to be an enduring business that inspires the adventure lifestyle for generations.

Lee Canyon, now in its 57th winter season, recently opened the doors of Hillside Lodge, a new two- story, 10,000 square foot building at the base of the resort offering indoor and outdoor spaces with sweeping views of Lee Canyon. Hillside Lodge is the most significant transformation in the resort’s history.

Lee Canyon’s 2019-20 winter season is expected to run through March 2020, weather permitting. For information on Hillside Lodge, and pricing for season passes, lift tickets, and tubing,

As one of POWDR’s 11 mountain resort destinations, Lee Canyon aims to offer guests memorable experiences that integrate entertainment with adventure.

About Paradise Ranch Foundation:

Paradise Ranch Foundation was founded in 2011 with the mission to provide mental health services to families in need. They provide Horse Assisted Therapy (HAT) and Interactive Behavioral Therapy to all with a focus on children with autism and our veterans with Traumatic Brain injuries and  PTSD. It is well known, and research has proven that interactions with animals reduce stress, lower heart rates, and have an overall positive effect on mental health and emotional states. When we include a horse in our therapeutic sessions, they become a participating member of the therapy process. The horse is able to “tune in” to emotional states and recognize when the way you feel should be reinforced or reduced and the horse reacts accordingly.   HAT is beneficial for many health disorders from depression, anxiety, OCD, suicidal thoughts or other behavioral problems.  https://paradiseranchlv.com/paradise-ranch-foundation

County partners with Las Vegas vendors including Southwest Airlines for an extra special wedding season

 

The Clark County Clerk’s Office will open a temporary marriage license office at McCarran International Airport in February to help couples coming to Las Vegas obtain marriage licenses faster and easier during what the office expects will be an exceptionally busy February that includes Valentine’s Day, a three-day Presidents’ Day weekend, Leap Day, and the dates 2/20/20 and 2/22/20. Businesses throughout the city are coming together to showcase the fun and excitement that comes along with getting married in Las Vegas.

Adding to the excitement, the airport office will have a special life-sized cutout of Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner giving couples the chance to “celebrate” with a photo with the famous duo who were secretly married in Las Vegas back in May 2019.

Marriage License Bureau in Downtown Las Vegas
Those going through the main Marriage License Bureau will also enjoy a “selfie station” inside the bureau leading up to and for Valentine’s Day weekend from Feb. 12-16 for even more fun photo op moments.

Fun and Surprises for All
Additional businesses have come together for all couples who just need to show their marriage license or marriage certificate showcasing their February 2020 wedding to redeem: Diamond jeweler Sky Diamonds in Town Square is offering all couples a complimentary ring cleaning with one lucky couple winning a $500 gift certificate towards jewelry at the store. Airport gym ZEROlevel Fitness + Wellness is offering newlyweds two day passes for the price of one ($25 value) and luggage storage facility Bags2Go is offering storage of two bags for the price of one ($8 value) for those with some extra time on their hands and not looking to trek with bags in tow.

Both the Terminal 1 Pop-Up Marriage License Bureau and the main bureau in Downtown Las Vegas will also have a custom ‘Married in Vegas Feb. 2020’ SnapChat filter. All couples getting married in Clark County in February 2020 will also get to take home a souvenir ‘Married in Vegas Feb. 2020’ keepsake and auto decal to celebrate their marriage during this popular month and year.

“Las Vegas is a great place to get married,” County Clerk Lynn Goya said. “We anticipate that 2020 will be a very busy year for weddings as couples take advantage of the year 2020. This pop-up office will make it even easier for couples to get their marriage license and allow them to have more time to spend having fun.”

The temporary office will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily from Feb. 13-29. This is the third consecutive year the Clerk’s Office will open a temporary Marriage License Bureau at the airport. It will only issue marriage licenses and vow renewal certificates, and will accept credit card payments only. Couples may also get a marriage license and vow renewal certificate at the Marriage License Bureau main office at 201 E. Clark Ave. in downtown Las Vegas. The main office is on the south side of the Regional Justice Center just three blocks south of the Fremont Street Experience, and is open from 8 a.m. to midnight every day, including holidays.

Couples coming to Las Vegas to get married are encouraged to fill out a marriage license pre-application, which can be found through the County website at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov. (Select “Get a Marriage License” under “Popular Services” on the left side of the webpage.) After completing the application online, the couple will be issued a reference number that they should bring with them to the Marriage License Bureau, or the temporary office at the airport. Anyone seeking a marriage license needs to show proper identification, such as a driver’s license or passport (a complete list of allowed identification and other information is available through the Clerk’s Office web page). Marriage licenses cost $77.

About the Marriage License Bureau
The Marriage License Bureau, a division of the Clerk’s Office, issues about 80,000 marriage licenses annually and is typically the busiest in the nation. Typically, more than 1,500 marriage licenses are issued during the days leading up to and including Valentine’s Day, which is about twice the number of licenses issued during a non-holiday period. Couples can find a directory of wedding services and vendors at www.WeddingChamber.Vegas. The wedding industry is also an important component of our tourism economy, as people coming to Clark County to attend a wedding or get married generated more than $2 billion in economic activity including on lodging, entertainment, dining and other non-gaming activities in Clark County in 2016.

VEGAS SUPERKARTS LAUNCHES VSK LEAGUE – A MONTHLY GO-KART CHAMPIONSHIP RACE

 Vegas Superkarts (VSK) – the city’s longest and fastest outdoor go-kart racetrack by Exotics Racing – announces the VSK League, a brand-new monthly racing championship. Open to every level of driver age 15 and older, the VSK League hosts races on the last Sunday of every month. The first race in this series is Sunday, Jan. 26, at 8:30 a.m.

VSK League racers earn points toward the Sodi World Series (SWS), the international ranking of the top Sodi rental kart drivers in the world. The SWS represents the largest worldwide go-kart ranking system and the VSK League offers the only participating competition in Las Vegas. The more races drivers enter, the more points they can accumulate toward qualifying for the Sodi World Finals in Dubai.

VSK League drivers compete in three 8-minute races to win points and increase their rankings on the championship leaderboard. Each race concludes with a podium ceremony complete with trophies for the top three racers. Drivers can check their rankings of the SWS website and compare their records with friends and drivers from all over the world.

Drivers must create a free profile on the Sodi World Series website to participate in the VSK League. The $90 fee per race includes registration in one of two weight classes: under 180 pounds or over 180 pounds. The addition of ballast weight is permitted but not provided. If fewer than eight drivers have signed up for each race by the Tuesday before the event, the race is subject to cancellation. Drivers must provide full payment by credit card by calling (702) 405-7223. Unpaid drivers will be removed from the race registration.
