Las Vegas, NV, October 07, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- MakeYourVegas.com announces that it will be donating 10% of proceeds for the month of October to the Las Vegas Victims' Fund.
In the days following the tragedy the Las Vegas community has suffered, we have seen a tremendous outpouring of residents and tourists trying to help the community in one way or another. The horrific act of violence that tore apart a concert Sunday night quickly served to bring the city of Las Vegas together in an unbreakable bond.
The residents of Las Vegas have been lining up outside of blood banks to help treat the over 500 wounded. Droves of vehicles continue to bring food, water and other supplies to centralized locations intended to bring comfort to the families of victims. Even more astounding Clark County Commission Chair, Steve Sisolak, started a GoFundMe page to raise money for the families of the victims and has raised over 9 million dollars in the first few days of being active.
Community leaders and prominent figures in Las Vegas have also been contributing to the fund. This morning Sheldon Adelson, CEO of the Las Vegas Sands Corp. and The Venetian Resort donated 4 million dollars to the cause. In the days prior former UFC owner, Dana White, donated 1 million dollars and Wayne Newton donated 100 thousand dollars just to name a few.
Las Vegas based company MakeYourVegas.com is donating 10% of all proceeds for the month of October along with many other Las Vegas businesses. CEO, Dominick Triola said, "the victims and their families will be needing much more than what has already been collected on their behalf". With 58 deceased victims and over 500 injured the cost of medical care, funeral expenses and the lost of income can be devastating to anyone involved in this senseless tragedy.
If you would like to donate to the cause you can do so on the GoFundMe page put together by Clark County Commission Chair, Steve Sisolak. You can be assured that the money you donate will be used wisely in this time of crisis.
