VENETIAN AND THE PALAZZO

 

BASKETBALL STAR CARMELO ANTHONY PARTICIPATES IN LOCAL YOUTH BASKETBALL CLINIC IN A PARTNERSHIP WITH SANDS CARES AND JEROME WILLIAMS’ JYD PROJECT

 

A partnership between Sands Cares™ – the corporate citizenship program of The Venetian® and The Palazzo® Las Vegas – and Jerome Williams’ JYD Project created a unique event for local youth to meet basketball star Carmelo Anthony. While Anthony was recently in Las Vegas, he stopped by the Valley View Recreation Center for the basketball clinic.

 

“For me to be able to come here and be involved with the kids and talk to the kids and answer their questions, hear what they have to say, and see their work ethic…I’m astonished by that,” said Carmelo Anthony.

 

Fifty of the local youth participated in the clinic, where they worked on basketball techniques including dribbling, shooting, and passing. Anthony stopped by each clinic station, taking time to give some tips to the participants. After the drills, Anthony fielded questions in a Q&A session where he was asked about the hard work it took to get to the professional level and playing on the 2008 Olympic basketball team. He then signed autographs and took pictures with the attendees.

We are fully cognizant of the need for services for those with intellectual disabilities and these fundraisers help achieve that,” she said.

The charity helps those up to 18 years of age on the autism spectrum and their families by addressing gaps in services. It offers diagnostic, treatment and support services, as well as quality-of-life programs that help to prepare those on the spectrum to live as independent adults and have a functioning role in our communities.

 TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY, NOV. 1

 

PANDA!, an unprecedented theatrical spectacular, will make its world premiere at The Palazzo Las Vegas this December. The first ever Chinese-produced show to take up a Las Vegas residency, PANDA! promises to dazzle the senses by combining high-flying acrobatics, kung fu mastery, music, and dance, transporting audiences to a realm of Far Eastern folklore.

PANDA! follows the heroic quest of Long Long, a warm and caring panda on a quest to rescue his beloved Peacock Princess from the malicious Demon Vulture, who has kidnapped her on their wedding day. In the face of desperation, Long Long seeks counsel from Immortal Old Kung Fu Man, who prepares him for the dangerous mission to save his true love. Confronted by hardship, danger, pain, and temptation, Long Long must overcome universal obstacles to defeat Demon Vulture and restore peace and balance.

Produced by a team whose impressive credits include the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, PANDA! will perform at The Palazzo Theater. PANDA!’s talented cast features award-winning performers from China National Acrobatic Troupe, Shaolin Monastery Kung Fu Monks Troupe, and China Star Dance Troupe.
