Fremont Street Experience will be kicking off their first SlotZilla Charity Challenge of 2015 by partnering with the Firefighters of Southern Nevada.
They will be donating 100% of SlotZilla revenue to the Firefighters of Southern Nevada Burn Foundation on Thursday, January 15 from noon to 6 p.m. The event will feature firefighters and chiefs from each fire department: Las Vegas Fire and Rescue, Clark County Fire Department, the City of Henderson and the City of North Las Vegas, racing each other on the upper Zoomline.
“We are honored to be giving back to the firefighters of Southern Nevada, especially for all that they do for the community,” said Jeff Victor, president of Fremont Street Experience. “Everyone that comes down to fly on SlotZilla on either the Zoomline or Zipline on Thursday, January 15th will be supporting a great cause with every dollar of revenue going to the Firefighters of Southern Nevada Burn Foundation. This will be a great way for members of the community to give back to this foundation which provides assistance to burn victims and their families as well as children at risk that are identified by local fire agencies.”
