Local Business Owners Donate Services to Henry’s Place for Youth Camp

November 20, 2009 by  

Henry’s Place, the non-profit organization and future youth camp formed in honor of Las Vegas Metro Sgt. Henry Prendes who was killed in the line of duty in 2006, is pleased to announce not one, but two substantial donations received recently. Both donations will significantly assist with the preparation and construction phases for the camp in Cedar City, UT.

Longtime Valley resident Trent Keenan, Principal of Diamondback Land Surveying (, contacted Henry’s Place after hearing Henry’s widow, Dawn Prendes, interviewed on a local radio station. Keenan’s company will conduct a complete survey and inspection of the 14-acre property and map out the campsite in preparation for construction; services valued at more than $4,500.

“I heard Dawn talking about their plans for the youth camp and the recently acquired land in Cedar City,” said Keenan. “Sgt. Prendes gave his life protecting our community. I felt conducting the land survey for a children’s camp facility in his honor was the least I could do.”

Another donation came from Joe Gilbilterra, a mortgage broker and owner of Tri-State Construction. Gilbilterra is donating approximately $25,000 worth of lumber and materials to Henry’s Place once construction begins.

“Being from Cedar City and having lived in Las Vegas, I wanted to get involved in this amazing project and help out any way I can,” said Gilbilterra. “A camp like Henry’s Place will directly and positively affect the kids in the Las Vegas Valley, and it’s all about helping the kids.”

“Through Trent and Joe’s generous donations, we’re that much closer to fulfilling Henry’s dream of creating a camp for our Valley’s children, “ said Dawn Prendes. “I am eternally grateful for the overwhelming support and can’t wait to get started.”
