Opportunity Village seeking additional support to reach fundraising goal

Posted at 12:57 PM, Dec 08, 2020

In a year unlike any other, Opportunity Village has relied on community support more than ever to navigate the challenges arising from COVID-19.

The non-profit is seeking one final investment from the Southern Nevada community in 2020 to help raise critical funds for adults with disabilities and offset the financial loss of not being able to host the beloved Magical Forest for the first time in 30 years.

As an added bonus: All gifts made through the end of the year will be matched, up to $1 million dollars, by philanthropists Bill and Susan Walters, who announced their three-month commitment in October.

Opportunity Village has already received tremendous support from local partners this year, including the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation, Baird Foundation, Cashman Equipment, Casinos Care, Cox Communications, Fair, Anderson & Langerman, Las Vegas Raiders, MJ Christensen Diamonds, Morrissey Insurance Services, OS Construction Services, PGA TOUR Superstores, Resorts World Las Vegas, The Siegel Group Nevada, Wahoo's Fish Tacos and Walker Furniture, and will be using the next four weeks to try and reach their fundraising mark.
