Caesars Entertainment and Red Mercury Entertainment Support the Inaugural “ROCK THE NIGHT FOR THE SHADE TREE” at BRITNEY: “PIECE OF ME”

CAESARS ENTERTAINMENT AND RED MERCURY ENTERTAINMENT SUPPORT THE INAUGURAL “ROCK THE NIGHT FOR THE SHADE TREE” AT BRITNEY: “PIECE OF ME”

 Caesars Entertainment, Darin Feinstein of Red Mercury Entertainment and BRITNEY: PIECE OF ME Executive Producer Larry Rudolph partnered to provide concert tickets, dinner at Fatburger on the Las Vegas Strip and private transportation for more than 300 residents, staff, board members, and close friends and family of the local Las Vegas shelter for women, children and their pets

 

Caesars Entertainment, Darin Feinstein, venture capitalist, and owner of Las Vegas-based Red Mercury Entertainment alongside Executive Producer Larry Rudolph in the award-winning Las Vegas residency for Britney Spears, “Britney: Piece of Me” at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, launched “Rock the Night for The Shade Tree” this past Wednesday, April 5. After months of careful planning and collaboration of all three powerhouse entertainment entities, an impactful partnership was formed to offer an evening of unforgettable support and inspiration for one of the Las Vegas charities closest to their hearts, The Shade Tree. “Rock the Night for The Shade Tree,” a special night devoted to the many residents of The Shade Tree, will join the already successful annual event produced by Feinstein and Red Mercury “Annual Holiday Give Back” which celebrates its fifth year this December as a reoccurring summer event produced for the local shelter providing much needed support and safe refuge for women, children and their pets.

“Having a close family member that suffered years of abuse, makes it all the more meaningful to be able to produce events like this,” said Feinstein. “This night will not cure the problems these women and children suffered at the hands of abusive people, but will hopefully brighten their day while they are dealing with the tragic circumstances they have been forced into.”

“We are so very honored and proud to have been a part of something as special as Rock the Night for The Shade Tree,” said Rudolph, “It was a great night with a lot of smiles.”

“Caesars Entertainment Corporation and Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino have always had a strong commitment to the communities where we live and work, including our hometown of Las Vegas,” said Richard Broome, executive vice president of public affairs and communication for Caesars Entertainment. “We are pleased to have been a part of Rock the Night for The Shade Tree.”
The inaugural “Rock the Night for The Shade Tree” took place Wednesday, April 5th and welcomed more than 350 residents, staff, board members, friends and family of The Shade Tree to an all-expense paid night on the town complete with private bus charters that transported the large group to and from the Downtown Las Vegas shelter allowing them an exciting stress-free Las Vegas entertainment experience. The Shade Tree group was then treated to dinner at Fatburger on the Las Vegas Strip, owned by Feinstein, and tickets for the entire group to experience a live Las Vegas performance of “Britney: Piece of Me” at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.

“The women at the shelter had a fabulous night out filled with great food and music. Britney’s performance was empowering and inspirational; just what the ladies need,” said Marlene Richter, executive director The Shade Tree. “We all feel honored to have been a part of the first Rock the Night. We are grateful to Darin, Larry, Caesars and Britney.”

The “Rock the Night for The Shade Tree” hopes to grow with each year offering new and different events and performances revolving around inspirational entertainment. Plans for 2018 dates and performances are already being discussed in an effort to tie together Las Vegas tour stops for visiting shows and additional Las Vegas celebrity headliners.

THE SHADE TREE SHELTER CELEBRATES NATIONAL VOLUNTEER WEEK, APRIL 6-13

Individual and Corporate Volunteers Give Back to the Community through Volunteerism and Leadership

 

The Shade Tree, Southern Nevada’s only 24-hour shelter designed specifically to meet the needs of women and children in crisis, announced today plans to celebrate National Volunteer Week taking place April 6-13, 2014. National Volunteer Week is a time to take action and encourage individuals in their respective communities to be at the center of social change – discovering and demonstrating their collective power to make a difference.

To celebrate locally, The Shade Tree is collaborating with numerous businesses and organizations including Walgreens, Devine Designs Hair and Nails Salon, Women of Summerlin, Coveralls, The Pit and several local Boys and Girl Scout Troops. Throughout the week, the volunteer groups will provide makeovers for the women, catered lunches and dinners, the opportunity to participate in a job fair and the remodeling of several areas within the Shelter. All activities will take place on site at the Shade Tree shelter, located at 1 West Owens.

“The impact that these groups and activities will have on the women and children is immeasurable,” says Marlene Richter, Shade Tree’s Executive Director. “Volunteers are critical to the Shade Tree achieving its mission to provide safe shelter to homeless and abused women and children in crisis. We are grateful to all volunteers who help us serve the 6,000+ women and children who enter our shelter doors each year. Without their support, we would not be able to provide access to services and resources such as employment opportunities, healthcare, education and much more.”

In 2013, over 1,100 volunteers donated their time and talents in support of The Shade Tree. Volunteers can assist with special events such as monthly birthday parties for the children, preparing and serving meals, tutoring children in the Children’s Activity Center, or leading a Life Skills class. For those who are interested in learning more about available volunteer opportunities, or to sign up to volunteer, please visit http://www.theshadetree.org/volunteer.html.

National Volunteer Week, a program of Points of Light, was established in 1974 and has grown exponentially each year, with thousands of volunteer projects and special events scheduled throughout the week. This year also marks the 40th anniversary of the celebration, demonstrating the enduring importance of recognizing our country’s volunteers. With the fifth anniversary of the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act, the creation of the Volunteer Generation Fund and President Obama’s resonant call to serve, this year will be even more inspiring.

Easter Seals Nevada will kick off the month-long fountain fundraiser by hosting “Art at the Fountain” on Wednesday, April 3 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. At the event, children who receive services at Easter Seals Nevada will move their regularly scheduled playgroup to the fountain inside Miracle Mile Shops where they will showcase their artwork.

Every year, more than five million children under the age of five in the U.S. are at risk for development delays and disabilities. Since 1950, Easter Seals Nevada has been creating solutions that help people with disabilities become self-sufficient through education, community partnerships and direct services.

Miracle Mile Shops’ partnership with Easter Seals Nevada is part of the center’s Caring, Giving, Changing campaign, celebrating a year of change in 2013. In addition to monthly fountain fundraisers, the Caring, Giving, Changing campaign also raises funds for other programs and organizations through community sponsorships, additional partnerships and a number of cash and in-kind donations. In previous months, Miracle Mile Shops teamed up with The Shade Tree (January), Goodie Two Shoes Foundation (February) and March of Dimes (March). Other organizations receiving fountain fundraisers as part of the community outreach campaign include: Dress for Success Southern Nevada (May), WestCare Nevada (June), Nellis Air Force Base (July), Communities In Schools of Nevada (August), Nevada PEP (September), United Way of Southern Nevada’s Women’s Leadership Council (October), the Nevada Chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (November) and Boys & Girls Clubs of Henderson (December).
