Acts of Kindness: Supporting two non-profits this spring

LAS VEGAS - The community is supporting two of our prior "Acts of Kindness" recipients: how you can get involved in supporting their causes for the month of April.  

St. Patrick's Day offered the perfect weather for a dog adoption event outdoors in Boulder City. It was part of the non-profit "A Home 4 Spot's" First Annual Charity Poker Tournament. Founder Diana England says, "It was a good turn-out in Boulder City, we even had to get the first gaming license."

Five-thousand dollars was raised that day. The non-profit provides foster care and medicine for abandoned dogs. England adds, "I remember when I first started my first year, my goal was to get 50 dogs adopted out. I think we are going to do eight-hundred this year."

She received our Acts of Kindness awards in February of 2014. She and her many volunteers have saved thousands of dogs and raised more than a half million dollars for the medical treatment of animals who otherwise would have been euthanized. 

If you'd like to get involved, April 6th, Zia Records is hosting a charity dinner to benefit "A Home 4 Spot" at the Brooklyn Bowl.

One of our other recipients is the Founder of the non-profit, "Critical Care Comics." Jason Golden received our Acts of Kindness award in July of 2015. He equips his friends with comic books, they dress up as superheroes. They pass out comic books, while visiting sick kids in the hospital.

In March Village Square hosted an event to raise funds for this group and several others. On the evening of April 20th, you can take part as well. Head to Village Square off W. Sahara where you can meet superheroes as well as Jason Golden. Local comic artists will be sketching for donations at Celestial Comics. The event is free. There will be a classic car show and plenty of free kids activities as well.
