Flightlinez and the Fremont Street Experience will donate all their revenues from zipline rides on Wednesday, Sept. 28 to create a minimum $5,000 scholarship at Arbor View High School in Alyssa Otremba’s name to keep her memory alive and will donate the remainder of the day’s proceeds to The Rape Crisis Center (Photo credit: Craig Tanaka).
“We had already been working with The Rape Crisis Center to have our September funds benefit their worthwhile efforts and when we heard about Alyssa’s untimely passing we were also very committed to keeping her memory alive. All involved were happy to work together to make the fundraising efforts on this day benefit both causes and create an awareness of the needs in our Las Vegas community,” said Joey Vanas of Flightlinez.
Flightlinez is committed to serving the Las Vegas community by hosting charitable fundraisers throughout the year. In June, Flightlinez and Fremont Street Experience donated nearly $18,000 to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Las Vegas and have donated more than $100,000 to local charities and community groups since launching the new charitable initiative in February.
