Olivia is currently performing her “Summer Nights” residency at Flamingo Las Vegas, where a portion of every ticket sold is given back to the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre (ONJCWC). In 1992, Olivia was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her personal triumph against cancer led her to announce her partnership with Austin Health and the creation of the ONJCWC in her hometown of Melbourne, Australia. After nearly ten years of fundraising close to $200 million, the ONJCWC opened its doors in 2012. The ONJCWC provides a comprehensive range of services and facilities for cancer treatment, education, training and research as well as a dedicated wellness center.

Olivia also announced that the Olivia Breast Health Action Kit will be sold at the Flamingo Promenade gift shop, as well as retail shops at other Caesars Entertainment properties. The Olivia Breast Health Action Kit is a comprehensive wellness kit, which unites valuable breast health information and an interactive journal with an effective self-examination device so women have a credible yet, simple system to monthly examine their breasts; know what to look for and how to optimally prepare for their annual check-ups and screenings.

Caesars Entertainment is redefining the iconic Las Vegas skyline with The LINQ Promenade, an open-air shopping, dining and entertainment district, anchored by the world’s tallest observation wheel, the Las Vegas High Roller. Named as the “Best thing to do on the perfect weekend getaway in Las Vegas” by Condé Nast Traveler, The LINQ Promenade and High Roller features more than 30 unique retail, dining and entertainment venues and plays host to a variety of special events, festivals and more. Located at the heart of the world-famous Las Vegas Strip, the 550-foot tall High Roller, recently voted as one the top places to take a selfie by Travel + Leisure, is the focal point of the unique urban entertainment district and has proven to be a top location to spot celebrities. The wheel’s 28 glass-enclosed cabins feature an interactive experience including video and music that fade away to unveil spectacular views of the famed resort city in the 30 minutes it takes to complete one full revolution. Each cabin accommodates up to 40 people. Cabins are available for individual or group experiences. For more information, visit TheLINQ.com.
