Las Vegas, NV Aug.4th 2014, – Mark Shunock is proud to announce that the September edition of “Mondays Dark” will take place on Monday, September 15th, 2014 at 8:30 p.m. at Vinyl inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Following the success of last month’s Soul Fundafied night, 100 percent of the ticket proceeds from the September show will benefit the Douglas J. Green Memorial Foundation and will feature Country Star Andy Ross, ROA and former Glee cast member Jon Hall, Travis Cloer of Jersey Boys, Ben Hale and Felice Garcia of Million Dollar Quartet, the magic of Jason Andrews, Lori Legacy and others to be announced with the evening titled “GONE COUNTRY”.
“Last month’s SOUL/FUNK night was a huge success and this month’s COUNTRY Themed show shouldn’t be missed,” says Shunock, who plays Lonny in the hit “Rock of Ages” at the Venetian. “The support of the community and the performers here in Las Vegas has truly inspired me to take ‘Mondays Dark’ to a new level each month so that we can continue to raise much needed funds for local charities.”
Every month Shunock gathers an eclectic cast of guests including stars from Hollywood, the Strip, musical acts, athletes and celebrity chefs for 90 minutes of chat, entertainment – and a lot of laughs. “Mondays Dark” partners with a different Las Vegas-based charity to raise money each month for that charity, between ticket sales and silent auction items. Previous charities to benefit from Mondays Dark include Opportunity Village and AFAN (AID FOR AID of NEVADA), Nevada SPCA and the St. Therese Center HIV Outreach, The Shine Family Foundation, and The Miracle League of LV.
