KTNV Channel 13 to Host Second Annual Telethon to Benefit Opportunity Village

LAS VEGAS — KTNV Channel 13 will host the Second Annual Building Opportunity Telethon to benefit the men and women of Opportunity Village from 6 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 18. The telethon will raise the much needed funds to help build the third Opportunity Village campus, The Ralph & Betty Engelstad Campus. Lack of space prohibits Opportunity Village from meeting the needs of hundreds of Las Vegas residents with intellectual disabilities who require the many programs and services Opportunity Village provides.

Festivities will also take place at Opportunity Village’s main campus on June 18 located at 6300 W. Oakey Blvd. including a catered meal from Memphis Championship Barbecue for anyone who stops by to pledge at least $30 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5 to 7 p.m. Opportunity Village’s antique carousel will be running for all ages to enjoy as well as the Forest Express Train, which runs through the Magical Forest.

Opportunity Village representatives will be available to give tours of the Oakey campus and accept donations. Channel 13 will also be on hand to capture surprise check presentations from community corporations. For more information, to schedule a check presentation or issue a corporate challenge for matching funds, please contact Sheria Spleen at (702) 880-4038. To make a pledge on June 18, supporters can call the pledge hotline at (702) 368-2255 or stop by any of the Memphis Championship Barbecue locations to donate.

Opportunity Village is a not-for-profit organization that has been improving the lives of disabled adults in our community since 1954. Through vocational training, community job placement, advocacy and social recreation programs these extraordinary men and women are able to live their lives with a sense of independence.

Opportunity Village is one of the most visible and successful non-profit organizations in Southern Nevada. It provides invaluable services to disabled adults, helping them live independently and be productive and important members of the community.
