Our Charitable Work

LVHA has been a strong community supporter of charities such as Three Square, Salvation Army, Catholic Charities, Olive Crest, Golden Rainbow, Shade Tree, Toys for Tots, Child Haven and more. LVHA has also established its own programs by adopting a school during the holidays through the “Fill a Bag with Cheer” campaign to make sure every child receives shoes, coats, toys, etc.

The Las Vegas Hospitality Association encompasses a broad spectrum of companies supporting the tourism, convention and hospitality fields in Southern Nevada. We are proud that our members and industry are committed to the goals of our organization. Their support and donations have established our scholarship and endowment programs and implemented our charity donations.

Fill-A-Bag with Cheer

2019 Fill A Bag With Cheer: It’s that time again!

There are over 700 kids that need our help this year during the holidays. LVHA has chosen C C Ronnow Elementary School for our annual “Fill a Bag with Cheer” Holiday program. Members have the opportunity to sponsor a child by donating items including coats, socks, blanket, gloves, hats, books, toys, and clothes. If you can help put a smile on a child this holiday by bringing a bag of cheer to a child in need, please fill out the form below and choose the number of children you wish to help this year. Special thanks to the LVHA members who have already adopted children, to Shepard Exposition Services for logistics (start to finish), Brady Linen for the fantastic reusable canvas bags, Zappos for their generous donation and the Tropicana Las Vegas for stepping up to sponsor 100 children. Together we all make this program possible! Deadline for signup: December 3, 2019.
