“We are thrilled so many people came down and supported Spread the Word Nevada by flying on Slotzilla,” said Thomas Bruny, Director of Marketing of Fremont Street Experience. “We had an extremely successful day and ended up setting the largest weekday SlotZilla Charity Challenge record with $17,244. All that money will go to this terrific organization dedicated to advancing early childhood literacy by placing books into the hands and homes of children within Southern Nevada’s at-risk, low income communities. They buy books at a dollar each, so that means 17,244 new books.”
