Fremont Street Experience Director of Marketing, Thomas Bruny, presented the organization a check for $17,244 on Monday, March 7.
“We are thrilled that so many people came down and supported Spread the Word Nevada by flying on Slotzilla,” said Bruny. “We had an extremely successful day and ended up setting the largest weekday SlotZilla Charity Challenge record with $17,244. All of that money will go to this terrific organization that is dedicated to advancing early childhood literacy by placing books into the hands and homes of children within Southern Nevada’s at-risk, low income communities. They buy books at a dollar each, so that means 17,244 new books.”
