Special Performance of Le Rêve – The Dream
To Benefit The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Foundation
LAS VEGAS (November 4, 2019) – Wynn Las Vegas furthers its commitment to supporting the non-profit community in Las Vegas with the introduction of Giving Week. Taking place December 1 – 7, the new volunteerism and fundraising initiative organized by the Wynn Employee Foundation will mobilize more than 12,000 Wynn employees with a week of activities supporting local charities. Headlining Giving Week is a special benefit performance of Wynn's signature aquatic production show, Le Rêve – The Dream, with proceeds donated to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Foundation (LVMPD).
"Wynn employees are deeply committed to community service in Las Vegas, a city that we are all so proud to call home," said Marilyn Spiegel, president of Wynn Las Vegas. "Giving Week is a new and impactful way for Wynn to provide food, supplies, and funds to vital charities in need during the holidays."
The LVMPD Foundation is a non-profit established in 1999 dedicated to supporting programs that help keep Las Vegas a safe place to live, work, and visit. Donations are directed to initiatives including advanced officer training, support for the families of fallen officers, higher education scholarships for children of officers, and community safety and engagement programs.
The benefit performance of Le Rêve – The Dream will take place on Monday, December 2, at 7 p.m. Tickets start at $100, with premier seating at $150, VIP seating at $250, and premium Sheriff's Circle seating at $350. An exclusive cocktail reception will take place prior to the performance for VIP-level and above ticket holders featuring gourmet food and drinks as well as a meet and greet with Le Rêve – The Dream cast members.
Giving Week is inspired by Giving Tuesday, the international day of philanthropy that takes place the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. Extending this concept to seven days, Wynn employees will participate in daily fundraising activities that benefit a variety of local charities. On Giving Tuesday itself, December 3, Wynn Las Vegas and Encore Boston Harbor will unite in support of The Pack Shack, a national non-profit that distributes food and necessities to those in need through local community partners. Employees of both resorts will pack a total of 300,000 meals for families facing hunger issues and food insecurities in both communities.
In 2018, Wynn Resorts employees donated more than 46,000 hours of time to charitable causes, and more than $600,000 in funds including a corporate match. At the corporate level, Wynn Resorts donated more than $17 million globally to dozens of charitable causes.
