Shunock, who plays Lonny in the hit Rock of Ages at The Venetian, said “The support of the community and the performers here in Las Vegas has truly inspired me to take Mondays Dark to a new level each month so that we can continue to raise much needed funds for local charities.”

This month Mondays Dark partnered with recent Best of Henderson honoree Rudy Foundation, a 501©(3) nonprofit dedicated to strengthening communities by bringing people together, providing scholarship opportunities in the areas of education, sports, and the performing arts, and making a positive impact on the lives of others.

Rudy Foundation was inspired by the story of Daniel ‘Rudy’ Ruettiger, a Las Vegas local who grew up in a small town with the dream of playing football at Notre Dame University. Against all obstacles, from low grades and financial hardship to his 5’6” stature, Ruettiger’s spirit and determination persevered, allowing him to be an instrumental force in his team’s win against Georgia Tech. The story of his triumph was told in the 1993 blockbuster film, Rudy, starring Sean Astin. For more information, visit https://www.facebook.com/RudyFoundation.
