SlotZilla Partners With Spread the Word Nevada to Support Literacy

February 5, 2016

We’ll be hosting the very first SlotZilla Charity Challenge of 2016 to benefit Spread the Word Nevada, an organization devoted to increasing literacy and distributing books to at-risk kids.

On Feb. 25, 2016, all revenue from SlotZilla Zipline and Zoomline sales, between 1:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m., will be donated to Spread the Word Nevada.

Spread the Word Nevada gives books to kids in need. What’s not to love?

Since its inception, the SlotZilla Charity Challenge series has raised more than $145,368 for nonprofit organizations in Southern Nevada.

The event with Spread the Word Nevada will highlight Nevada Reading Week which begins Feb. 29.

Spread the Word Nevada is 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.

Since 2001, Spread the Word Nevada has distributed a staggering 3.4 million new and used books to about 420,000 children and their families in Southern Nevada.

“We have raised a combined total of over $145,000 at the previous SlotZilla Charity Challenges and are excited to continue this program throughout 2016,” said Thomas Bruny, Director of Marketing of Fremont Street Experience. “Spread the Word Nevada encourages childhood literacy, an important initiative in Southern Nevada. We are honored to be partnering with them in anticipation of Nevada Reading Week 2016.”
