Hard Rock Cafes in Las Vegas to Complete 40 Charitable Acts of Kindness in 40 Days

In celebration of Hard Rock International’s 40th Anniversary, both Hard Rock Cafe locations in Las Vegas are completing 40 Charitable Acts in 40 Days starting on May 6 and ending on June 14, which coincides with Founders’ Day, the date Hard Rock was launched in 1971. This act of generosity echoes Hard Rock’s motto of “Take Time to Be Kind,” and speaks to the company’s philanthropic endeavors around the world.

“For the past 40 years Hard Rock has been deeply invested in giving back locally as well as globally,” said Hard Rock Cafe General Manager, Greg Thomas. “We have had a presence in Las Vegas for more than 20 years, and with the 40th anniversary this June 14, we thought doing something above-and-beyond for our community would really be something special for our company and our Hard Rock family.”

In addition to the 40 Charitable Acts listed below, Hard Rock Cafe is also partnering with VH1 Save the Music Foundation and the Josh Stevens Foundation during the same 40 day period. For VH1, the goal is to raise money to outfit one school in the United States with an entire music program through donations being made at either Las Vegas Hard Rock Cafe. Guests can add a donation onto each check, with the fundraising target goal of $30,000. For the Josh Stevens Foundation, Hard Rock Cafe is inviting all Las Vegas middle school teachers and principals to reward their students that are “caught” performing acts of kindness by giving them a Josh Stevens Foundation Be Kind card. Each card will include a Hard Rock Cafe gift card inside which will entitle the recipient to $10 off food or merchandise at either Las Vegas Hard Rock Cafe location.
