Fremont Street Experience to Partner with Ronald McDonald House Charities of
Greater Las Vegas for SlotZilla Charity Challenge
100% of SlotZilla™ Revenue to Benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities on February 26
Fremont Street Experience will be hosting another SlotZilla Charity Challenge with the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Las Vegas. They will be donating 100% of SlotZilla revenue to Ronald McDonald Charities on Thursday, February 26 from noon to 6 p.m. There will be a noon kickoff event where members of the community and Ronald McDonald House Charities will be on-site taking pictures and flying on SlotZilla. Flight times can be purchased at the SlotZilla box office or can be booked in advance online at www.vegasexperience.com.
“We developed the SlotZilla Charity Challenge concept as a fun and exciting way to give back to the community throughout the year,” said Jeff Victor, president of Fremont Street Experience. “Everyone that comes down to fly on SlotZilla on either the Zoomline or Zipline on Thursday, February 26 will be supporting a great cause with every dollar of revenue going to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern Nevada. This will be a great way for members of the community to give back to RMHC, which believes every child deserves a comfortable and supportive place to grow by creating and supporting programs to improve a child’s well-being.”
