In a visual display for the fight against hunger in Southern Nevada, representatives from Three Square Food Bank teamed up with Clark County Commissioners to light the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign orange on “Go Orange” Day, September 4.
Three Square executive team members Brian Burton, Matt Muldoon and Dan Williams were joined by Clark County Commissioners Mary Beth Scow, Lawrence Weekly and Chris Giunchigliani as they ceremoniously ‘flipped the switched’ to light the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign.
Go Orange Day is a national hunger awareness day initiated by Feeding America as a kick-off to Hunger Action Month, which takes place annually in September. Efforts are organized locally by Three Square to raise awareness of the more than 315,000 individuals in Southern Nevada who are hungry.
Additionally, hotel marquees, exterior building lights, restaurant menu items, and employee uniforms at a variety of locations were colored orange in support of the national initiative. For more information, please visit www.threesquare.org.
