Mark Shunock is proud to announce that the August edition of “Mondays Dark” will take place on Monday, August 18th, 2014 at 8:30 p.m. at Vinyl inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Following the success of last month’s CLASSIC VEGAS night, 100 percent of the ticket proceeds from the August show will benefit HIS LOVE STREET and will feature Earl Turner, Clint Holmes, Chadwick Johnson, Skye Dee Miles, Mary Wilson, LV Tenors, Lisa Mack and others to be announced with the evening titled “Soul Funkdafied”.
“Last month’s Classic Vegas night was a huge success and this month’s Soul/Funk Themed show shouldn’t be missed,” says Shunock, who plays Lonny in the hit “Rock of Ages” at the Venetian. “The support of the community and the performers here in Las Vegas has truly inspired me to take ‘Mondays Dark’ to a new level each month so that we can continue to raise much needed funds for local charities.”
Every month Shunock gathers an eclectic cast of guests including stars from Hollywood, the Strip, musical acts, athletes and celebrity chefs for 90 minutes of chat, entertainment – and a lot of laughs. “Mondays Dark” partners with a different Las Vegas-based charity to raise money each month for that charity, between ticket sales and silent auction items. Previous charities to benefit from Mondays Dark include Opportunity Village and AFAN (AID FOR AID of NEVADA), Nevada SPCA and the St. Therese Center HIV Outreach, The Shine Family Foundation, and The Miracle League of LV.
Tickets are $20 in advance, $30 at the door, and can be purchased by visiting www.MondaysDark.com and are limited to 300 tickets per event. For more information please call 702-485-1262. Follow us on Twitter @Mondays_Dark. To donate silent auction items please call 702-485-1262.
