Reinvigorating the school system’s music program at a critical time of need; this is the single largest donation of its kind in Clark County history for a music program. “The happiest mayor in the world,” Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman, was also on hand, as the five semi-trucks left directly from the event to drop the brand new instruments at schools across Clark County.
