LAS VEGAS (KTNV)  — The life and legacy of television personality and Las Vegas enthusiast Robin Leach was celebrated Friday afternoon.

Keep Memory Alive, a fundraising entity for the Cleveland Clinic Nevada, and the city of Las Vegas held a ceremony for a street dedication in Leach's memory.

A portion of Clark Avenue that includes the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health was officially renamed to Robin Leach Lane to honor of the longtime supporter of Keep Memory Alive.
