The event started out with a lavish red carpet outside the theatre as the following celebrities arrived to show their support of The PEF: Terry Fator, Frank Caliendo, Recycled Percussion, Vinny (spokesperson for New York-New York Hotel & Casino), Frank Marino, Josh Strickland, Amy Davidson, and Grandma Lee.

It was a full house inside the theatre as the crowd watched in delight as Fator performed his incredible routine. Laughing and clapping the entire way through the show, the audience could not get enough of the America’s Got Talent alum—they even gave him a long standing ovation at the conclusion of the evening’s performance! Immediately after, Fator took to the mic and thanked everyone for attending the show in support of The PEF and how he was grateful that their purchase of a ticket that evening would benefit a great cause in the community.

Fator then welcomed James up to the stage where she acknowledged and thanked Fator for his support of The PEF this year and discussed the importance of improving public education in Southern Nevada. James then presented a $350,000 check to Steele who graciously accepted the donation and thanked Fator and MGM Resorts International for their incredible support.
