LAS VEGAS (CelebrityAccess) — Resort operator Las Vegas Sands announced that singer Kelly Clarkson is lined up to headline Sands Cares INSPIRE 2019, a fund-raising event for the Sands Cares Accelerator Program, on Friday, May 24, at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas.
Underwritten by Las Vegas Sands, the charity concert raises funds for Sands Cares Accelerator Program members – the Marty Hennessy Inspiring Children Foundation (ICF) and Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth (NPHY).
The Sands Cares Accelerator seeks to invest a variety of resources in participating nonprofit organizations focused on addressing issues such as youth homelessness in the Greater Las Vegas Metroplex.
NPHY provides comprehensive services to stabilize the lives of homeless teens by meeting their immediate needs as well as providing a safe, supportive environment and a path to self-sufficiency. ICF actively works with at-risk youth to help them realize their potential through project-driven learning, mentoring, apprenticeships, academics and athletics.
“INSPIRE is a do-good, feel-good opportunity for the community,” said Ron Reese, senior vice president of global communications and corporate affairs at Las Vegas Sands. “The chance to see someone as powerful as Kelly Clarkson in a more personal venue like The Venetian Theatre, combined with knowing your ticket purchase is going directly to helping at-risk youth, should make for a remarkable evening.”
According to Sands, 100% of the tickets and VIP package sales will be donated to the non-profits.
