LAS VEGAS – Project 150, a local nonprofit that helps homeless, displaced and disadvantaged high students, is partnering with EoS Fitness to raise funds for Project 150’s scholarship program.
From April 15 to June 22, EoS Members and guests can donate to Project 150 and earn a miniature-sized paper graduation cap/tassel that will be featured in recognition of their supporting the scholarship fund. The sponsored graduation caps will be displayed throughout all 14 EōS locations in Southern Nevada.
“One of the main reasons we got involved with Project 150 is to support the youth in this community,” said Eric McCauley, senior regional vice president of sales and operations for EoS Fitness. “They are our future and everyone should get a chance at earning a higher education, regardless of their status or income. Project 150 does an amazing job of making sure these kids know they have a place to go if they need help. Being born and raised in Vegas, it is important to see our future leaders get a fair shot at life.”
EoS Fitness is also committed to matching donations made by its members up to an additional $25,000 for a total fundraising goal of $50,000. Scholarship award levels range from $1,000 to $4,000 per student. Local high school, college and trade students (such as cosmetology, medical or dental, HVAC or electrical) are encouraged to apply if they meet the requirements.
“As students finally reach that goal of graduating high school, we want them to know the journey has just begun,” said Kelli Kristo, Project 150’s executive director. “We hope the scholarship opportunity helps them pursue higher or vocational education that opens a path to a successful future.”
Project 150 will hold a celebratory scholarship awards luncheon on June 22 at the Palace Station Hotel and Casino.

About Project 150
Project 150 is a 501(c)3 nonprofit charitable organization, founded in December 2011 by local businessmen Don Purdue and Patrick Spargur. The two had heard about 150 homeless high school students at Rancho High School in Las Vegas who were in need of support over the Christmas break. Since that time, Project 150 has expanded and now serves more than 6,000 registered and non-registered homeless, displaced and disadvantaged high school students in more than 75 schools throughout Nevada. Project 150 provides these students with food, clothing, school supplies, sports equipment, shoes, college and workforce readiness and other needs so they have what they need to continue school and be successful in life.
