North Las Vegas Chamber Foundation Raises $53k

NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. — Golfers from around the nation participated in the North Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce Foundation golf tournament, held May 21 at TPC Summerlin. The event exceeded its $45,000 fundraising goal, bringing in nearly $54,000 in net proceeds.

The foundation's mission is to provide educational opportunities through programs, funding and mentorships that will improve the quality of education in our schools, along with providing professional development opportunities to the local business community.

To date, the foundation has distributed thousands of dollars in support of North Las Vegas elementary and middle school libraries, teacher mini-grants, academic scholarships and business education programs.

We think this is an excellent example of the business community helping to support education, particularly in areas that are currently underfunded, such as school libraries.
