All Ticket Sales Benefit Sands Cares Accelerator Program Members: Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth, Marty Hennessy Inspiring Children Foundation
LAS VEGAS, March 18, 2019 /3BL Media/ – Las Vegas Sands (NYSE: LVS) announced today that Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum artist Kelly Clarkson will headline Sands Cares INSPIRE 2019, the signature fund-raising event for the Sands Cares Accelerator Program, on Friday, May 24, at The Venetian® Resort Las Vegas. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. PST, Friday, March 22.
Through Sands Cares, the corporate giving and community engagement program of Las Vegas Sands, the Inspiring Children Foundation (ICF) became the first beneficiary of the Accelerator Program, a community partnership that invests in local non-profit organizations that have the potential to impact the community more robustly with additional resources and support from a major corporate partner. Through the program, Las Vegas Sands developed INSPIRE, an annual charity event and concert that has featured Jewel and Jason Mraz, as its annual fundraiser for Accelerator program participants.
Symbolizing her own personal journey, Jewel’s upcoming performance at the Las Vegas Sands/Sands Cares INSPIRE event on May 19 is significant as much because of the artist’s transformative staying power over the past 20-plus years, as her message to the young people of the Marty Hennessy Inspiring Children Foundation, the first participant in the Sands Cares Accelerator Program, who will benefit from the event’s proceeds.
