MGM MIRAGE and Volunteer Center Host Awards

LAS VEGAS — The Volunteer Center of Southern Nevada and MGM MIRAGE are calling for nominations: outstanding individuals and groups of volunteers in Southern Nevada for the 7th Annual Community Enrichment Awards.

The Community Enrichment Awards recognize, honor and reward exceptional community service in five categories: Education, Group, Individual, Senior, and Youth. Three finalists from each category will be selected by a panel of community leaders, and the winners will be announced on April 20, 2007. The event will be hosted at the MGM Grand Conference Center.

Winners are awarded $1,000 for a qualifying nonprofit organization of their choice. The youth winner is awarded a $500 scholarship, along with $500 contribution for his or her agency. Each finalist also receives a $250 grant for the organization they serve.

All finalists will also be nominated for the Daily Point of Light Award, a program sponsored by the Points of Light Foundation, the Corporation of National and Community Service, and the Knights of Columbus. This award honors those who have made a commitment to connect Americans through service to help meet critical needs in their communities.
