LAS VEGAS – Park Place Infiniti is doing its part to help find families for local children seeking adoption by displaying The Adoption Exchange “Heart Gallery” at its newly expanded showroom this summer.
The Heart Gallery is a collection of artful photos featuring local children who are waiting to be adopted by a safe and loving family. It will be at Park Place Infiniti, 5555 W. Sahara Ave., from June 11 through mid-July.
“As a native of Las Vegas, I feel an obligation to help the children in our community succeed, starting with the most basic necessity – a loving family,” Park Place Infiniti General Manager Joe Tortomasi said. “Park Place Infiniti has a long history of supporting children’s charities and we’re proud to continue supporting The Adoption Exchange and the good work they do.”
The Adoption Exchange, a nonprofit organization, serves as the connection between the 1,100 Nevada children who wait in foster care and families who adopt. Park Place Infiniti’s previous contributions helped 77 children waiting in foster homes to unite with their adoptive families.
“I invite families and prospective parents to visit us and to see the Heart Gallery, especially if they’re interested in adoption,” Tortomasi said.
Park Place Infiniti has been a longtime supporter of the Adoption Exchange, and remains the title sponsor of its annual fundraiser, The Monopoly® Tournament, which is planned for this fall. The Adoption Exchange’s Monopoly event will include a tribute to Las Vegas health care pioneer Dr. Anthony Marlon and the Marlon Foundation he founded. It will also feature a silent auction, cocktail reception, dinner and an entertaining one-hour Monopoly® tournament with prizes for first, second and third place.
