November is here, as evidenced by the shock of cool weather we have just experienced, the deconstruction of pumpkin lawn decorations, and the wrap up of the World Series.
We have seen many of you out and about, picking apples at Gilcrease, cleaning up at Dynamo Day, on the rooftop at Drai’s, or using your good energy to assemble dental hygiene kits with us a few weeks back.
We were thrilled to see so many of you at our Community in Blue celebration on October 23. If you haven’t already, check out the photos from that day of collective impact and passion. Check out the award winners!
This time of year makes us feel a palpable surge in goodwill towards man (and earth) as folks center on family, being outside, and what is truly important.
As I said, we have seen many of our friends, volunteers, donors and staff out in the community and we will continue to do so with some exciting events coming up.
Tonight, we will see our YPS friends at TPC. Come join us for some sharing, great views and meet some members of TPC and other newcomers.
And, we will join hundreds of folks and our WLC members this tomorrow for our 7th Suit Drive, held at the NV Energy parking lot from 7a-2p. Please bring professional items and see how lives can be impacted right away.
On November 20th, we hope to see many community faces at the Annual Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast at Texas Station. This event is an inspiring gathering of community leaders and students. The annual Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast was founded more than 50 years ago after Las Vegas Mayor Oran Gragson attended a President’s Prayer Breakfast hosted by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Cities around the country continue to honor this tradition.
On November 29th, we look forward to seeing you at the Neon Bazaar Luxury Pop-Up Market at Tower of Jewels at Tower of Jewels on Sahara. Roughly 15 luxury retailers will come together for a surprising pop-up shopping experience like none other. Enjoy champagne and get your holiday shopping started!
Soon after, we are very excited to see many of you on December 2nd at our Holi “day” of Giving, a full day of holiday giving back volunteering opportunities in the areas of Education, Health and Financial Stability. Get your good on and join us at one of three various activities throughout the day.
This past week I was excited to visit United Way of Salt Lake City to see their accomplished work in the community. Focusing on family stability, this United Way has developed centers around which the community has rallied to offer struggling families complete wraparound services to bolster every dimension of the family. There are lessons to be learned here, as we share our successes with them as well. We are so appreciative to have such a strong network. United Ways around the country are doing extraordinary work in the community.
This week also marks the election. We are proud to see one of our own elected to Assemblyman! Congratulations to Nelson Araujo, we know you will continue to do great things in our community.
From all of us to you, thank you for what you do to empower our community to grow, change and improve. Happy Fall to All.
