Make homegrown support a priority in September! Despite the significant amounts raised by national cancer organizations in Las Vegas, it’s disheartening that these contributions seldom benefit our local children directly. Lending your support to the local childhood cancer center isn’t merely impactful, it’s imperative. Please spread the word to your co-workers, friends, and neighbors — help us bring the community of Las Vegas together to benefit our childhood cancer treatment center, Cure 4 The Kids Foundation. Let’s #PaintTheTownGold in September
The Independence Planned Community is unlike most other housing developments currently in the works. Independence is focused on the first-time homebuyer. Homes will be priced to start in the higher $200,000 range. The homes also include all appliances and solar panels! The first 100 homes at Independence are currently under construction and model homes should be available for public viewing in the Fall.
Many students find high school challenging enough. Now imagine you are also battling cancer or a rare disease – and your immune system does not allow you to attend class in a traditional setting. Suddenly, many aspects of your education become much more challenging.
Despite those hurdles, Cure 4 The Kids Foundation congratulated its largest ever group of high school graduates and patients.
Karl Nickoley knows something about shooting and producing shows for television, film or commercials. He worked in Los Angeles for many years and moved to Las Vegas about seven years ago.
Working on many movie sets, he knew there was an opportunity to consolidate the needs of many production departments into one LARGE truck, as opposed to 10 separate trucks. With a solid business plan and help from Bank of Nevada, Karl and his company, OnLocation Production, has brought his dream to reality.
OnLocation Production is the proud owner of a brand new 53-foot tractor-trailer truck that can provide the resources for multiple departments in ONE truck – lighting, camera, grip, makeup/hair, office, sound, power, supplies and more. The truck makes it easier for any tv/film/commercial crew to have the resources they need for production outside of a soundstage – even in the middle of the Nevada desert or wherever the project takes them —including wi-fi!
The Assistance League of Las Vegas (ALLV) is made of up volunteer members who not only run the thrift store but work their philanthropic programs which support the community. Recently, ALLV members appeared on Channel 3 to offer advice for those viewers who may be donating items as part of their Spring cleaning.
The Spring Job Fair was hosted by Clark County Commission Chairman Jim Gibson and Commissioner Tick Segerblom, in partnership with the EmployNV Business Hub.
135 employers were on-site representing a variety of industries and more than 2,800 job seekers attended the event.
Preliminary numbers with about half of the employers reporting, show more than 300 job seekers were hired on-the-spot, with an estimated 1,900 additional job offers expected in the coming weeks pending second interviews, background checks, and other employment requirements.
