A fundraising event for the Spring Mountains Volunteer Association (SMVA), on Saturday, Aug. 6, 2011 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Event attendees are asked to donate $3 per person or $5 per family. The festivities include food, live music, arts and crafts stations, and booths featuring outdoor recreation and educational groups, local non-profits and other local organizations. Smokey Bear, the United States Forest Service mascot, will also make a special appearance.
Individual donors will each receive one raffle ticket for a chance to win prizes; family donors will receive six tickets. LVSSR will also be offering scenic chairlift rides for the day, priced at $8 per adult and $5 per child.
“LVSSR strives to help everyone realize just how beautiful and exciting Nevada’s mountains are,” says Kevin Stickelman, president and general manager at LVSSR. “SMVA deeply shares that same mission. We are honored to work with them and host this event together.”
The SMVA is a non-profit volunteer organization in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service (Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest). SMVA is dedicated to enhancing the natural, cultural, historical and recreational resources of the SMNRA, a range of mountains stretching approximately 55 miles along the west side of the Las Vegas Valley, which includes Mt. Charleston.
