Cure 4 The Kids Foundation Debuts New Arts in Medicine Program

Cure 4 The Kids Foundation Debuts New Arts in Medicine Program

The Former Project Imagine Merging Into Cure 4 The Kids Foundation

 

Project Imagine, an Arts in Medicine program which has enhanced the lives of thousands of Southern Nevada pediatric patients, will continue its inspirational work by becoming a program of Cure 4 The Kids Foundation.

Under the mutually approved agreement, Project Imagine will disband its own 501(c)(3) designation and become a full-fledged Arts in Medicine Program within Cure 4 The Kids Foundation, also a 501(c)(3) organization. The merger will benefit the arts initiative in several ways, including the ability to strengthen and expand the program, seek additional sources of revenue through Cure 4 The Kids Foundation donors, and provide the program with a permanent location.

“I started this organization 12 years ago after cancer took the life of a little girl I knew and deeply loved,” said Diane Mifsud, Founder of Project Imagine. “The loss propelled me to look at how I could use my artistic talents to benefit other children facing similar and difficult medical journeys. Through Project Imagine, I have had the pleasure to work side-by-side with the staff at Cure 4 The Kids Foundation. I see their excellence at work and the incredible care they have for these patients. Their focus and dedication to patients are why I chose to join Cure 4 The Kids Foundation,” she said.

Mifsud will bring her artistic interventions to patients at the clinic, including before and after medical appointments and during lengthy treatments in the clinic’s infusion suite. Cure 4 The Kids patients admitted into Summerlin Hospital’s Pediatric Hematology Oncology Unit will interact with Mifsud via virtual online visits.

In the past, Mifsud utilized additional local artists in music, theater, art, and photography to provide one-on-one enrichment sessions with patients, and to help them cope with feelings of isolation that can accompany a prolonged illness. Due to pandemic health safeguards, these additional artistic experiences will remain on hold until further notice.

“I am so very proud that Diane Mifsud chose to bring this successful Arts in Medicine program into the Cure 4 The Kids Foundation family where it will continue to enhance the lives of patients, and also benefit from our shared vision to provide the best treatment and related services to patients and their families,” said Annette Logan-Parker, president & CEO, Cure 4 The Kids Foundation.

As part of the transition, Mifsud will become director of the Cure 4 The Kids Foundation Arts in Medicine program and a member of the organization’s Behavioral Health Team.

“I know the impact our artists have on these children, which is why I continue to be so passionate about art working alongside medicine,” said Mifsud. “One of our artists played guitar for a boy in isolation – at a medically approved and safe distance – and the musician was able to change the energy in that room in seconds. It makes me cry when I think about it. Everybody started dancing, and then I looked around near the nurse’s station, and they’re dancing too. It just permeates whatever space we’re in, and the effect blows me away every single time,” she said.

Last year, approximately 1,000 patients or “little people” as Mifsud calls them, were directly served by the Arts in Medicine program. Since 2010, Mifsud has worked with patients at Cure 4 The Kids Foundation, Summerlin Hospital Medical Center and Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center.

About Cure 4 The Kids Foundation

Founded in Las Vegas in 2007, Cure 4 The Kids Foundation exists to provide high-quality, research-focused medical treatment to children battling cancer and many other life-threatening conditions.

While we recognize the experience will be different than before, it is the start of bringing back fun and entertainment to people’s lives – now, during these stressful times, when they need it most. So, we are very excited to welcome guests back to the Plaza and bring back the vintage Vegas vibe that our guests deserve and have come to expect.”

The Plaza will utilize enhanced disinfecting protocols for all public touchpoints, including doors, tables, chairs, kiosks, room keys, and gaming equipment. Vending machines, including ice machines, will be turned off until all restrictions have been lifted.

During the closure, the Plaza completed a deep cleaning of the entire property and fully renovated the casino bathrooms. Physical modifications were also made including the installation of plexiglass barrier at the registration desk and numerous touchless hand sanitizer stations for use by staff and guests.

On June 4, the Plaza’s Bingo room, the only one in downtown Las Vegas will again offer six daily bingo sessions.

BLVD Coffee reopens this week and Pawn Plaza installs PURE ZONE, anantimicrobial film laminate, for better hygiene and safety at the Plaza

 

BLVD COFFEE REOPENS THIS WEEK and OFFERS FREE COFFEE TO ALL FRONTLINE WORKERS THROUGH MAY

 

PAWN PLAZA ALSO MAKES PLAZA SAFER WITH ANTIMICROBIAL LAMINATE PUREZONE AT ALL PUBLIC TOUCH ZONES 

The excitement of opening their new business, BLVD Coffee, in early March had the Carter family optimistic but the coronavirus had other plans for them.  Just two weeks later they closed for the safety of their new downtown community as well as everyone in Las Vegas.  That excitement is back as they reopen this week and return to normal hours of 8 am to 4 pm  and share their gratitude with frontline workers by offering them a free coffee through the end of the month.

 

The new Pawn Plaza tenant joins Good Pie, Rick’s Rollin Smoke BBQ & Tavern, Chumlee’s Candy on the Blvd., Chapels at the Pawn, Highway Radio, Pawn Plaza Visitors Center, Master Barbering Galo Shop and Elite Motorsports to round out the dining and shopping opportunities across the parking lot from the World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop.

 

The reopened BLVD Coffee will now specialize on to go orders aimed at offices in the area.  “We felt like with all the businesses around our downtown location these offerings might be better suited to their needs and appetites and we know that adjusting to the current times will be instrumental to our success moving forward,” said Tim Carter.

 

The Carter family are Vegas basketball tradition and have called Las Vegas home for over a quarter century.  Dad “Big Mike” coaches at Bishop Gorman and has for more than two decades.  Younger son Ben is a professional basketball player overseas and mom Hadar, a former Israeli Army Lieutenant, is the heart of the family and the coffee operation.  Oldest son Tim will oversee operations after playing collegiate basketball.  The family has always bonded over coffee and thus BLVD Coffee was born.  “BLVD Coffee will support local businesses and to that end our coffee will come from Boulder City’s Colorado River Coffee Roasters,” said Tim Carter.

 

In addition to celebrating the reopening of BLVD Coffee, Pawn Plaza installed last week an antimicrobial film laminate, PURE ZONE, to make the location even safer for visitors, tenants and employees.  This innovative technology which is being installed by local company Purple Flare will have laminates at all touch zones at Pawn Plaza.  The biofilm used keeps germs from collecting on surfaces and lasts for several years.  The reduction in germs is 99.99% over surfaces not laminated by the product.  Purple Flare can be reached at purpleflareagency.com or 702 677 4200 for more information on the PURE ZONE product.

 

Pawn Plaza is located at 725 Las Vegas Boulevard South, just south of the World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop, home to HISTORY’s “Pawn Stars.” For the latest news and information on Pawn Plaza, visit pawnplaza.com or Like Pawn Plaza on Facebook.

Paitin is known for its old-vine parcel of Sori Paitin within the Serraboella cru; Serraboella represents one of the more structured crus in Barbaresco, like Montestefano or Albeisa.

As always, Ferraro’s award-winning chef will prepare imaginative dishes to accompany each wine. The full menu follows:

Guerrieri Rizzardi, Soave Classico, 2018
Calamaro
Giant squid, spring vegetables, tomato relish

Paitin Nebbiolo Ca Veja, 2016
Bagna Cauda
Traditional garlic-anchovy dip, polenta, rice chips, vegetables

Paitin Barbaresco Serra, 2016
Raviolini Al Gorgonzola
Small pocket Gorgonzola cheese ravioli, mushroom ragout

Paitin Barbaresco “Sori Paitin” Serraboella, 2015
Quaglia
Roasted quail, artichokes, pistachio, foie gras sauce

 University Gateway, the pioneering mixed-use residential, retail and office project on Maryland Parkway adjacent to UNLV and developed by G2 Capital Development, announces the reopening of the original location of Roberto’s Taco Shop. The eatery, which first opened in 1990 at 1220 E. Harmon Ave. near UNLV, shuttered in January 2020 when its strip mall became slated for redevelopment by G2. Its new home, on the ground floor of the high-rise University Gateway building at 4700 S. Maryland Pkwy., is open 8 a.m. to midnight.

“We’re proud Roberto’s is now open at University Gateway,” said Frank J Marretti III, founder, G2 Capital Development. “Their iconic taco shop has been a fixture in the neighborhood for 30 years and makes a welcome addition to our mix of eclectic eateries and other amenities. I’m sure it will be a frequent destination for everyone who lives and works around the UNLV corridor.”

University Gateway’s first floor retail also houses Peet’s Coffee, eateries such as Crumbl Cookies and Ike’s Love & Sandwiches, the convenience of a branch of America First Credit Union and the soon-to-open Pizza Forte, Sushi Joes and the Brew Tea Bar, plus more retail shops to come.

For more information about University Gateway, visit theyouliving.com. Media may schedule a preview tour and interview by emailing Vanessa Thill with The Vox Agency at vanessa@thevoxagency.com.

ABOUT ROBERTO’S TACO SHOP
Roberto Robledo and his wife Dolores began their career in the food industry providing tortillas to stores and restaurants when they successfully opened their own tortilla factory in San Ysidro, California in the summer of 1964. Soon after opening the tortilla factory, they expanded the venture and open a traditional style taco shop. In 1964, Roberto Robledo began operating San Diego’s first taco shop and, in 1990, Roberto’s Taco Shop opened its first Nevada location. The eatery now has more than 60 locations—57 of which are in Nevada—and remains synonymous with fresh, authentic Mexican food served at modest prices and reasonable portions. All along, Roberto’s has kept the Robledo family’s commitment to quality, service and uncompromising fidelity to family recipes. For more information, visit www.robertostacoshop.com.
