LAS VEGAS – For a third consecutive year, Nevada State Bank will sponsor Swish for a Wish, a partnership with the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels men’s basketball team to raise awareness and money for Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada.
Starting with the first official home game on November 2 and throughout the 2018-2019 season, the bank will donate $20 for every free throw made by a Rebel, up to $10,000. Last season, Nevada State Bank’s sponsorship made a wish come true for Wish Kid Marlee, who wished for a trip to Walt Disney World Resort with her family.
“Along with the support of UNLV Athletics, we are looking forward to raising funds and awareness for Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada,” said Terry Shirey, president and CEO of Nevada State Bank. “The Rebels will help us by having a great season, making free throws and helping us raise funds to grant wishes for these courageous children.”
