HEARTS ALIVE VILLAGE ANIMAL RESCUE UPDATE

HEARTS ALIVE VILLAGE ANIMAL RESCUE UPDATE
Helping our community help our pets during this difficult and ever-changing time

 

As we approach April tomorrow and the continuation of the coronavirus pandemic and its effects on our pets and shelter pets, we at Hearts Alive Village wanted to share an update for those looking to be heroes during this time.

 

We remain staffed for business at our pet supply store. However, to further protect our employees, our volunteers, and customers, we will  be conducting curbside sales. For interest in an animal, please info@heartsalivevillage.org  prior to stopping by Hearts Alive Village (1750 South Rainbow Blvd., Suite #4). We can set an appointment and coordinate a meet.

 

There are many dogs and cats in foster homes who are still available for adoption. We work to keep our website updated with available pets. www.heartsalivevillage.org. We have a reduced number of animals at our adoption center in careful consideration for any emergencies that may arise. Our adoption center is still home for more than a dozen cats and a few dogs still needing to be placed with adopters or fosters, the need remains even though it may be changing with the fluidity of the times and the situation.

 

We are, like all those around us, endorsing self- isolation for everyone who can do this, it is the safest way to try and get through these troubling times.  However, our most vulnerable (pets, elderly, veterans) still need help to get on the other side and we hope that will be sooner than later.  The need is greater now than ever for pet food to help those struggling households. We are still engaging volunteers who can deliver food and supplies to those who have pets and cannot get out to get the supplies and food they need or are finding themselves unable to afford such necessary items.  If you are finding yourselves with some extra time during this period, please volunteer with us or any other cause that may be close to your heart.  There are so many heroes among us, some seen and some doing their work more quietly – we owe a debt of gratitude to all of them and to those who will step up in the coming days.

 


About Hearts Alive Village

Hearts Alive Village is a non-profit 501(c)(3) located in the heart of Las Vegas, Nevada, founded in 2013 out of an intense need to help save dogs and cats that were losing their lives in an overcrowded shelter system. We provide medical treatment, a safe and comfortable place to heal, and adoption services with a passion for senior pet placement at two centrally located facilities.  Our mission is to secure loving and stable homes for dogs and cats at risk of being lost in the shelter system.

 

Our main objective is to keep animals out of the shelter in the first place by supporting struggling, low-income pet owners. We maintain a pet food bank, offer low cost spay/neuter and other medical services, and help to responsibly re-home, as well as provide educational and training resources. For more information, to make a donation, adopt a pet, or volunteer, please call 702-595-0644,  visit HeartsAliveVillage.org or follow on Instagram @heartsaliveanimalrescue.

Bruno Mars Pledges $1 Million to MGM Resorts Foundation

BRUNO MARS PLEDGES $1 MILLION TO THE MGM RESORTS FOUNDATION FOR MGM EMPLOYEE EMERGENCY GRANT FUND & CHILDREN’S MEDICAL SUPPORT FUND

 

GRAMMY Award-winning entertainer Bruno Mars, who has been a performer at the Park MGM theater, announced today that he has donated $1 million to the MGM Resorts Foundation to support MGM employees impacted economically by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

 

Mars has performed a series of limited dates at The Park Theater at Park MGM in Las Vegas since 2016.

 

A representative for Mars says, “The people at MGM have given Bruno Mars the rare opportunity to be able to continuously gig while he’s in the creative process of working on his next album. With the closures across Las Vegas, Bruno wanted to show his appreciation to the amazing employees who help make these shows possible in hopes that we’ll all be out of this situation and having fun together again very soon.”

 

The money will go toward The MGM Resorts Foundation’s Employee Emergency Grant Fund & Children’s Medical Support Fund, which is designed to help MGM employees and their immediate families with short-term assistance during unexpected hardships and emergencies. The Grant Fund may also provide disaster relief assistance to furloughed or laid-off employees whose compensation is suspended or employment terminated as a result of an extraordinary event (or events) that severely impacts a community in which MGM Resorts conducts business, such as the COVID-19 public health crisis. 

 

“We consider Bruno Mars as part of the MGM family and appreciate what he is doing to help our employees and their families during these uncertain times,” said Bill Hornbuckle, Acting CEO and President of MGM Resorts International. “We recently expanded the eligibility requirements for the fund to help as many employees as we can who are impacted by the crisis, and this donation will help us expand our reach even further.”

THE STOVE LAUNCHES TEMPORARY POP-UP MARKET TO AID THOSE IN NEED SURROUNDING TIMES OF UNCERTAINTY

The Pop-Up Market Will Feature Essentials Including Eggs, Milk and Toilet Paper

The Stove located in Henderson is launching a temporary pop-up market as an effort to aid their guests in need. With the high demand for essentials such as eggs, milk, and toilet paper, and scarce conditions at local supermarkets, The Stove felt the need to fill a void in their neighborhood.

“We do not wish to see our guests and the elderly community go without due to these times of uncertainty,” said Executive Chef and Part Owner Antonio Nunez. “The current scenes at local grocery stores may be too stressful for seniors to endure, and buying in bulk may not be feasible for individuals, so we wanted to offer an alternative.”

The Stove plans to sell their overstock of items through depletion, but they do warn guests that there is a limit on items to avoid hoarding. The household items that will be sold include:

  • Local farm fresh milk ($5.50/gallon)

  • Local farm fresh eggs ($3.50/dozen)

  • Toilet paper ($1.50/roll)

  • Fettuccine ($2/pound)

  • Instant oatmeal (.40 cents)

  • Canned chicken broth ($5.50/50oz.)

  • Chicken soup ($1.25/7.25oz.)

  • Tomato soup ($5.50/50oz.)

  • Gatorade ($1.50/20oz.)

  • Half & half ($4/qt.)

  • Butter ($1.75/stick)

  • Hand sanitizer ($4/2oz.)

Items will be available for purchase as soon as March 17th at The Stove’s pop-up market which will take place inside their private dining room. Priority will be given to their senior guests and availability is based on a first-come-first-serve basis. The market hours are Monday-Sunday from 8:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m., or until stock runs out.

 

ABOUT THE STOVE

The Stove features multi-dimensional design dining experiences by celebrity chef Scott Commings, celebrated Vegas Valley local chef, Antonio Nunez, and General Contractor Steve Grodkiewicz. Leisurely lounging at the main bar overlooking the main dining room with a pastry bar sets the scene for the backdrop of the restaurant. The adjacent room has the feel of a speakeasy as you enter, but the setting of a Mad Hatter tea room with an edgy, one-of-a-kind twist to service. New to the restaurant’s offering is the Chambong (champagne-meets-bong) experience all set to breathtaking views of the Valley.

Hamilton has scored in double figures in 15 straight games and has tallied 23 or more in six of his last nine outings. Junior forward Mbacke Diong is the team’s leading rebounder with 8.1 per contest (4th in MW). UNLV is under new leadership this year in head coach T.J. Otzelberger.

SDSU won the season’s first meeting between the two teams, 71-67, in Las Vegas on Jan. 26.

UNLV’S MARVIN COLEMAN NAMED MOUNTAIN WEST MEN’S BASKETBALL PLAYER OF THE WEEK


UNLV’S MARVIN COLEMAN NAMED MOUNTAIN WEST MEN’S BASKETBALL PLAYER OF THE WEEK


Sophomore guard honored by conference after recording first triple-double by a Runnin’ Rebel in 20 years and career highs in points, rebounds, assists and steals in wins over San Jose State and New Mexico

UNLV sophomore Marvin Coleman was named Mountain West Men’s Basketball Player of the Week, the league announced Monday. It is his first career weekly honor and the second for a Runnin’ Rebel player this season.

 

Originally from Las Vegas, the 6-foot-2-inch guard averaged 14.0 points, 9.5 assists, 8.0 rebounds and 3.5 steals per game last week in home wins over San Jose State (98-87) and New Mexico (99-78). He also shot 91 percent from the free-throw line (11 of 12), while playing an average of 35.5 minutes per contest.

 

After scoring a career-high 17 points against San Jose State on Wednesday with a then-career-high eight assists, he recorded UNLV’s first triple-double in more than 20 years as he scored 11 points, grabbed 12 rebounds and dished out 11 assists (with only two turnovers) against New Mexico on Saturday. It marked just the fifth triple-double in Mountain West history and first since 2016.

 

Coleman’s 12 rebounds and 11 assists were both career highs, as were his six steals against the Lobos. UNLV’s last triple-double occurred on Nov. 19, 1999 as Mark Dickel had 17 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists vs. Mississippi Valley State.

 

UNLV’s two wins last week were its fifth- and sixth-straight at home and improved its Mountain West record to 6-1, which is its best league start in 12 years. The home win streak is its longest in five years, and overall, UNLV has won three straight games and seven of its last eight.

 

NEXT FOR UNLV: The Runnin’ Rebels (11-9, 6-1) will travel to Reno, Nevada, to play at UNR on Wednesday, Jan. 22. The 8 p.m. game will be televised by CBS Sports Network. UNLV’s next home game will take place Sunday, Jan. 26, vs. No. 7/6 San Diego State at 1 p.m. Tickets may be purchased at UNLVtickets.com, by calling 702-739-FANS (3267) or by visiting the Thomas & Mack Center Box Office.

About Earth, Wind & Fire
In 1969, music legend Maurice White birthed the music force named after the elements from his very own astrological charts. With soul as deep as the plant, Earth, Wind & Fire charted a history that will live on forever.

In 2019 their contributions to arts and culture was acknowledged in Washington DC with the prestigious Kennedy Center Honors. The Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery also awarded Earth, Wind & Fire with its Portrait of a Nation Prize. For their record-breaking success, they’ve also been awarded with Lifetime Achievement honors from ASCAP, NAACP, BET, and have star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Their reach extends to heads-of-state. They have been invited to perform for Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, who said in an interview with Rolling Stone that Earth, Wind & Fire was a “rhythm and blues and pop staple.”

With timeless songs and commitment to spreading positivity, Earth, Wind & Fire has consistently made music that has bridged the gap among all generations and nationalities. With a sound that blends funk, jazz, pop, soul, and R&B, Earth, Wind & Fire launched a musical genre that can’t be confined to a specific label except their own. From the funky and infectious “Let’s Groove” to the timeless dance classic “September” to the heartfelt “Reasons,” Earth, Wind & Fire’s catalog of hits has become the soundtrack to many lives; now, then and forever.

They continue to influence musicians from all generations and genres. Music giants Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and Prince have studied and hailed their artistry. While many of today’s chart-topping artists including Lenny Kravitz, Pharrell, Justin Timberlake, Kendrick Lamar, Chance the Rapper, and Solange have declared themselves super fans. Alicia Keys has called Earth, Wind & Fire “the best band ever” and Mary J. Blige showed her love by recording their song “Imagination.” And the band shared the stage with Black Eyed Peas performing on the half-time show at Super Bowl XX1X.

Their achievements are equally matched by their generosity. Over the years the band has supported various charity organizations including the Make a Wish Foundation, Race to Erase MS, the American Cancer Society, and the Human Society. In 2007, leader Philip Bailey founded Music Is Unity, which helps youth in foster care successfully transition into adulthood and provides music instruments to youth with musical aspirations but lacking the resources. Co- founder, Verdine White has led important initiatives with the Girls & Boys Club of America and opened The Verdine White Foundation in Los Angeles as a mecca to serve youth with music scholarships and other programs. Ralph Johnson also continues to be an advocate for the arts in school systems.

In 2016, Maurice passed and his memoir, My Life with Earth, Wind & Fire was released posthumously. In 2014, Philip Bailey released a memoir Shining Star: Braving the Elements of Earth, Wind & Fire.

Rock legends REO Speedwagon to perform at Red Rock Resort

 

Rock legends REO Speedwagon to perform at Red Rock Resort

Saturday, May 2, 2020 at 8 p.m.

Tickets on sale – Friday, Dec. 6, 2019 at 10 a.m.

Rock legends REO Speedwagon are returning to Las Vegas for a special performance at the Sandbar Stage at Red Rock Resort on Saturday, May 2, 2020 at 8 p.m. Located poolside at Red Rock Resort, the Sandbar poolside stage is the perfect destination for a concert experience under the stars. Tickets start at $35 plus applicable fees and go on sale Friday, Dec. 6 at 10 a.m.

Formed in 1967, signed in 1971 and fronted by iconic vocalist Kevin Cronin since 1972, REO Speedwagon is a band where the main constant over the decades is a never-ending desire to give their all to their fans, year in and year out. Formed loosely in the late 1960s at college in Champaign, IL, REO (named after the precursor to the light truck) rode to gigs in station wagons, hopping from small gigs to even tinier gigs, just to get their name out. It worked, as fans quickly realized there was much more going on here than your average college party band.

By the early 1970s, the band’s unrelenting drive, as well as non-stop touring and recording, jump-started the burgeoning rock movement in the Midwest. It carved a path that was eventually followed by STYX, Kansas, Cheap Trick and more. Platinum albums and freeform FM radio staples such as “Ridin’ The Storm Out” followed, set the stage for 1980’s explosive Hi Infidelity. REO rode the top of the charts with a RIAA-certified 22 million albums sold in the United States and 40 million around the globe, with a string of gold and platinum records and international hit singles, including “Take It on the Run,” “Can’t Fight This Feeling” and the platinum-certified “Keep On Loving You.”

Tickets for the REO Speedwagon are $35 plus applicable fees for standing room only and $50 plus applicable fees for VIP standing near the stage. All tickets go on sale Friday, Dec. 6, 2019 at 10 a.m. Guests under 18 years must be accompanied by an adult 21 years or older. Tickets can be purchased at any Station Casinos Reward Center and The Fiestas, by logging onto www.stationcasinoslive.com or through Ticketmaster at (800) 745-3000 or www.ticketmaster.com. For exclusive ticket pre-sale information connect with Red Rock Resort on Twitter @RedRockCasino and Facebook.
