❤ 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). Online registration is available at www.chfn.org/walk. 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.

Mondays Dark Turns Five! Dec. 17 Party Celebrates 2018 Charities, Announces 2019 Charities — MD will raise $1 Million in 2019 for Nonprofits

 

Mondays Dark Turns Five!
December 17
Party celebrates 2018 beneficiaries, announces 2019 charities
 Mondays Dark to hit $1 million raised for charity next year

 

It’s time for cheers, charity and fun for the fifth anniversary celebration of Mondays Dark, the twice-monthly celebrity-driven variety show benefitting local nonprofit organizations. With 42 charities under one roof, the anniversary party has become one of the largest philanthropic events of the year. It happens Monday, Dec. 17 at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

 

Guests will enjoy a stellar night with some of Las Vegas’ top entertainers who will be announced in the coming weeks. Festivities also will include a live and silent auction with art, show and concert tickets, dining packages, spa treatments, jewelry and other great prizes, and the reveal of the 21 Mondays Dark beneficiaries for 2019.

 

“I can’t believe Mondays Dark is five years old. I love our year-end celebration which brings all of our partners together as well as our new ones for next year ‒ 42 local groups celebrating each other under one roof.  It’s a cool party,” said Mark Shunock, entertainer and philanthropist who founded Mondays Dark. “In 2019, we’ll hit the $1 million mark in funds raised, and this is something our team is extremely proud of.”

 

The Mondays Dark 2018 lineup included: WHY Ranch/White Horse Youth Ranch Foundation, St. Jude’s Ranch for Children, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Miracle Flights, Baby’s Bounty, Tyler Robinson Foundation, HELP of Southern Nevada, New Vista, Positively Arts Foundation, Speedway Children’s Charities, Forgotten Not Gone, Cure 4 the Kids Foundation, Sin City Sisters of the Perpetual Indulgence, Leaders in Training, Down Syndrome Organization of Southern Nevada,  Alzheimer’s Association Desert Southwest Chapter, Officer Down, Adam’s Place, Yellow Pants Project, Children’s Heart Foundation, and Las Vegas Firefighter Youth Hockey.

 

Doors for the Mondays Dark fifth anniversary party open at 7 p.m., and the show begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20, $30 and $40 per person. There are also seven VIP Box Suites available at $1,500 for 12 people including food and cocktails. The Hard Rock is located at 4455 Paradise Rd. Tickets are available at www.MondaysDark.com.

 

Shunock developed the idea to give back to the community and support local charities with Mondays Dark in 2013 when he was starring in the hit Broadway musical, “Rock of Ages.” He enlisted some of his entertainment friends to help, and Mondays Dark was born. The popularity and reach of the fundraisers has continued to grow with charities and performers eager to be involved. By year’s end, 80 nonprofits will have been helped.

 

Mondays Dark was named “Best of the City” from Vegas Seven in 2014 and “Best of Vegas” from Las Vegas Weekly the following year. In addition, Shunock received the 2014 Angel Award for Cultural Advocate/Entertainer of the Year and was named Best Philanthropist from “Best of Las Vegas” and the Las Vegas Review Journal and the Impact Award from the Association of Fundraising Professionals Las Vegas Chapter for Mondays Dark.

 

About Mondays Dark and The Space
Mondays Dark was founded in November 2013 by entertainer and philanthropist Mark Shunock, who currently can be seen as the emcee for “Magic Mike Live” and the in-arena host for the Vegas Golden Knights. He wanted to provide the community with a sizzling mix of entertainment, music and comedy while supporting the many charities in Southern Nevada. To date, the 501(c)3 organization has raised more than $800,000 for local nonprofits, one event at a time, one ticket at a time. With the opening of The Space arts complex in 2016 by Shunock, Mondays Dark found a permanent home and opened the door to a wide variety of additional community outreach to Las Vegas – from local productions to children’s workshops, from targeted fundraisers to Mondays Dark events, and from fashion shows to weddings. Quickly earning a reputation for hip and intimate experiences, The Space features a 3,000-square-foot raw performance space, black box theater, two rehearsal studios, podcast/recording studio, and a vintage piano bar and lounge. It is located at 3460 Cavaretta Court off of Polaris Ave. just north of Harmon Ave. For additional information on Mondays Dark, including updates on The Space, programming and charitable events, visit www.MondaysDark.com or www.TheSpaceLV.com or connect via Instagram @MondaysDark, Twitter @Mondays_Dark or Facebook at www.facebook.com/MondaysDarkLasVegas.
