Three Square Invites the Community to “Fill The Plate” Throughout September for Hunger Action Month

Southern Nevada’s Food Bank, Along with Sponsors Boyd Gaming and KOMP 92.3, Launch Food Drive Sept. 8-30

September is Hunger Action Month and Three Square Food Bank is hosting a community-wide food drive – “Fill The Plate” – to collect food and funds, while raising awareness for its mission to end food insecurity in our community.

Today, Three Square executives were joined by representatives from Boyd Gaming to mark the first food donation on a 30’x30’ plate graphic – a central focal point of the “Fill The Plate” campaign.

How “Fill the Plate” works: beginning today, individuals, businesses and organizations can bring non-perishable food items to Three Square’s south warehouse (M-F between 9 a.m.-3 p.m.), drop off the food on the large plate graphic, snap a photo for social media using #FillThePlate and help spread the word throughout Hunger Action Month. Those needing to schedule food donation drop-off times outside of 9 a.m.-3 p.m. should call Bessy Le-Oh at 702.715.2833 to make arrangements.

A virtual food drive will also be open to collect monetary donations ( Periodically throughout the campaign, cans and boxes of food will be added to the “plate” to represent the cash donations collected.

The campaign goal is simple: to “Fill The Plate” by the end of the campaign on Sept. 30, when KOMP 92.3 will broadcast live from Three Square from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

“We’re grateful for the support of partners like Boyd Gaming and KOMP 92.3 for setting up our Fill the Plate food drive for success,” said Brian Burton, President and CEO of Three Square. “We want everyone in the community that’s going to participate to know that every donation they make, no matter the size of the contribution, makes a massive and positive impact on the lives of their fellow Southern Nevadans.”

“For nearly 10 years, Boyd Gaming has been proud to support Three Square and its vision of creating a Southern Nevada free of hunger,” said Marianne Johnson, Vice Chairman and Executive Vice President of Boyd Gaming.  “As a sponsor of this campaign, Boyd Gaming hopes to raise awareness of the important work that Three Square does, and we invite the Southern Nevada community to join us as we ‘Fill The Plate’ to end hunger in our community.”

KOMP’s Totally Politically Correct Holiday Bash Featuring Stone Temple Pilots with Chester Bennington with Special Guests P.O.D and Sick Puppies Takes Over The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas, Dec. 15





Tickets on-sale Friday at 10am!

KOMP 92.3 announced today they’re kicking off the holidays in true hard rock style. KOMP’S Totally Politically Correct Holiday Bash featuring Stone Temple Pilots with Chester Bennington, P.O.D. and Sick Puppies will take over The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Sunday, December 15. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10am.AEG Live

The men behind one of the most influential bands in rock and roll, bassist Robert DeLeo, guitarist Dean DeLeo and drummer Eric Kretz of Stone Temple Pilots, made the bold decision to join forces with Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington in early 2013. With Bennington in the fold, STP ignited a renaissance of newfound independence.

Completely in control of their musical destiny, STP released on October 8 their highly anticipated EP, High Rise, which pulses with renewed energy and purpose. The band has manufactured five hook-heavy tracks that stand beside anything in their timeless catalog, while Bennington infuses the music with an impressive level of confidence in his new surroundings. These guys were just meant to play together. It’s a special treat for fans, who have supported STP and Linkin Park to the tune of tens of millions of records sold worldwide.

Leadoff single “Out of Time” announces the revamped outfit’s intentions with a bang. Featuring a signature STP groove, it affords Bennington an opportunity to showcase both aggressive attitude and addictive melodies, and the public concurs: “Out of Time” has hit #1 on both the Active and Modern Rock charts.

P.O.D. (Payable on Death) has the right to talk about passion in music. Passion has been front and center since the band formed in 1992 in San Diego, CA, and all the way up to the release of their eighth and latest record, Murdered Love. Over the last two decades, the group has sold over 10 million albums (including 2001’s triple platinum record Satellite), garnered four No. 1 music videos, three Grammy nominations and over a dozen rock radio hits, including “Southtown,” “Alive,” “Youth of the Nation” and “Goodbye For Now.” Music trends have come and gone, but P.O.D.’s fanbase has seemingly only grown stronger.

The most startling aspect of their latest album, Murdered Love, lies in its diversity and the band’s songwriting having penned every track on the album. The opener “Eyez” might be the band’s heaviest song yet, with a cameo by Hatebreed’s Jamey Jasta. It contrasts sharply with “West Coast Rock Steady,” a playful hip-hop ode to their San Diego roots featuring Sen Dog of Cypress Hill. Meanwhile, “Panic & Run” is full-tilt punk, “Bad Boy” brings a funky swagger and first single “Lost in Forever” ties it all together with an equal mix of aggressiveness and melody. In the end, Murdered Love showcases a band at its most energetic and vital, nearly two decades after its debut. Sandoval agrees.

Sick Puppies’ recently released their third and most ambitious album, Connect. The trio is all about connection–with their fans, each other, their own psyches—and each of the dozen songs on Connect–from intense, epic rockers to mellower yet lyrically anguished ballads—is introspective yet also universal. From the first single, “There’s No Going Back” to the band’s most political song, the ironic “Gunfight,” Connect will exhilarate old fans and captivate new ones. The L.A.-based, Australian-bred band struck an elusive musical and lyrical balance of past and future on Connect.

Since the release of Tri-Polar (nearly half a million units to date and over 2 million single sold) and its slew of radio hits—the #1 Rock track “You’re Going Down,” the Top Five Modern Rock/Active Rock hits “Odd One” & “Riptide” and the cross-format anthemic smash “Maybe.” Connect (out July 16, 2013), with its melding of room-filling rockers and edgy yet poignant lyrics, is poised to be the Sick Puppies’ best-selling record yet.

Tickets, starting at $39.50 (plus applicable service fees), go on sale Friday at 10am at the Hard Rock Hotel Box Office, all Ticketmaster locations, online at or charge-by-phone at 800.745.3000.

Goodwill Presents Dump Your X’s Stuff Donation Drive


Dump Your X’s Stuff Donation Drive
Turn your ill-will into Goodwill in honor of Valentine’s Day

You could call it the Anti-Valentine’s Day donation drive.  We call it Dump Your X’s Stuff.

You know what we’re talking about. 

All that stuff an ex-boyfriend, girlfriend or spouse left at your place that is now sitting there collecting dust or taking up closet room.   Goodwill of Southern Nevada challenges Las Vegans not to hate this Valentine’s Day, but to spread the love and donate.

Monday, January 30 through Valentine’s Day (Tuesday, February 14) bring your ex’s “gently used” stuff to one of Goodwill’s more than thirty donation centers across the valley.  

Not only will you get a warm fuzzy feeling in your heart about helping Goodwill fund job placement programs in Southern Nevada, but YOU will get the receipt for a tax write off.  (Just please make sure you or your ex has officially been dumped before dumping any stuff, okay?)

Here’s an added bonus:  Those who donate between January 30 and February 10 will find out how to register to win a “Future Ex” prize package courtesy of KOMP 92.3FM’s Rock n Roll Morning show, featuring two pairs of tickets to the concert of your choice at House of Blues Las Vegas, dinner for four at Crossroads Restaurant at the House of Blues Restaurant & Bar, entrance into the private House of Blues Foundation Room at Mandalay Bay, mattress set from Best Mattress and a Black Diamond Pendant from Michael E. Minden Diamond Jewelers.  Contest rules will be posted on

With ongoing double-digit unemployment numbers in Las Vegas, the need for Goodwill’s services has increased exponentially.   Thanks to the community’s support, Goodwill of Southern Nevada served more than 8,000 people and helped place more than 1,200 people into jobs in 2011.

All items donated to Goodwill of Southern Nevada as part of the Dump Your X’s Stuff donation drive must be the sole property of the donor.  Goodwill of Southern Nevada and Lotus Broadcasting are not liable for items donated that do not belong to the individual donating.
