Las Vegas Marching Arts, Sin City Chamber To Benefit Positively Kids Clients

| |

Las Vegas Marching Arts, the Sin City Chamber of Commerce of Las Vegas and The Foundation for Positively Kids, are partnering to provide the ride of a lifetime to some local children who are terminally ill and medically fragile. The children will ride atop a 1971 International Harvester Fire Truck in the annual Helldorado Parade in April 2010 along with two firehouse Dalmatians. The children chosen to ride are clients of the Positively Kids organization.

The event will be partially sponsored by Swink Photography. Other sponsors for additional such events are needed and anyone interested in helping this cause is asked to contact Randy Warner at Las Vegas Marching Arts, 928-767-4895. To promote awareness, volunteers from Las Vegas Marching Arts will have the fire truck and the Dalmatians at the 6th Annual Sin City Chamber’s Holiday Party at the BMW Motorcycle Showroom on 6675 S. Tenaya Way, Saturday, December 5th at 6:00 p.m.

The entrance fee into the 6th Annual Sin City Chamber Holiday Party is an unwrapped toy. The toys are donated to member non-profit organizations.
