The First-ever Traveling Donor Wall in Las Vegas to Shine Light on the Special Needs Community
LAS VEGAS, NV (Mar. 21, 2019) –Tivoli Village along with community partner, Sunshine Nevada Organization, is excited to unveil its traveling donor wall Friday, Apr. 5 in honor of Autism Awareness Month. The donor wall and custom mural will be brought to life by two local artists, Clarice Tara Cuda and Charlie Corrales and will display a portable art installation, reflecting the sunshine that permeates the lives of those touched by the Sunshine Nevada organization’s programs, events, and services.
“This is Sunshine Nevada’s way of shining the light on all our phenomenal contributors who help fund our programs and services for the special needs community,” stated Kari Tillman, Founder of Sunshine Nevada. “We are delighted and grateful to launch the first-ever traveling donor wall in Las Vegas and commend Tivoli Village for hosting the unique and artful display.”
Sunshine Nevada strives to combat social isolation within the special needs community and develop a sense of belonging for children and young adults with Autism. The eye-catching, multi-media installation will also highlight donors in full color, and encourages the public to donate to this cause and further volunteerism.
“We are honored to be welcoming the Sunshine Nevada donor wall to serve as an artistic expression of this organization’s societal contributions,” said Andrea Schubert, Assistant General Manager of the lifestyle center. “We believe it will be a powerful showpiece for all of our visitors and be a beacon of light to cultivate social inclusiveness and belonging.”
The event is free and open to the public. From 5:30 p.m. until 7 00 p.m., attendees will be provided with light bites, cocktails, and live music. The donor wall will be proudly featured in Tivoli Village’s Piazza through the month of July for viewing and photographs. Interested sponsors and donors may contact Melanie Bash at Melanie@SunshineNevada.org for additional information.
