SlotZilla Charity Challenge Means a $9,260 Donation to Shriners Hospitals

November 11, 2015

Our SlotZilla Charity Challenge on Oct. 21, 2015 has resulted in $9,260 raised for Shriners Hospitals for Children.

On SlotZilla Charity Challenge days, Fremont Street Experience donates 100% of SlotZilla ticket sales to Las Vegas nonprofits. To-date, more than $126,000 has been donated to nine charities by Fremont Street Experience and its member hotel-casinos.

Shriners Hospitals for Children is a network of non-profit medical facilities serving kids with orthopedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries, and cleft lip and palate.

The Shriners Hospitals event was held to coincide with the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open golf tournament which took place at TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas.

PGA golfers Denny McCarthy and Hunter Stewart flew on SlotZilla to kick off the SlotZilla Charity Challenge.

PGA golfers Hunter Stewart and Denny McCarthy took to the skies over downtown Vegas to support Shriners Hospitals.

Here’s a look at McCarthy and Stewart as they take off from the SlotZilla tower, 77 feet up. Incidentally, Tiger Woods has posted a score of 77 or greater 17 times in his pro career.

Flying for charity!

Later in the day, PGA Tour golfers John Merrick and Derek Ernst flew on SlotZilla as well.

This time, the golfers flew on SlotZilla’s upper Zoomline. Flyers on the upper line take-off superhero-style. Learn more about SlotZilla.

The Zoomline is 114 feet up. Sorry, we couldn’t find any golf trivia related to the number 114.

Just kidding about the trivia thing. The 144th Open Championship was held at St. Andrews in Fife, Scotland. Zach Johnson won.

SlotZilla, Fremont Street Experience and its member hotel-casinos are pleased to work with worthy charities in our community.

Next up is a SlotZilla Charity Challenge for Opportunity in conjunction with the Las Vegas Great Santa Run. The event happens Dec. 5, 2015. Last year, we donated $15,068 to Opportunity Village, and this year we’re hoping to do even more.

Look forward to more fundraising events soon!
