“For better or for worse, this year has showed what a strong sense of community Las Vegans have,” said John Bentham, CEO of Ivory Star Productions and co-producer of Glittering Lights. “We present Santa in a special way every year and nothing could be more special than paying tribute to our amazing first responders.”
