ICYMI: Sands Cares Makes Donation to UNLV Dental Clinic for Veterans

On October 15th, team members from The Venetian, The Palazzo and Sands Expo presented a check for $70,000 to the Sgt. Clint Ferrin Dental Clinic for Veterans at the UNLV School of Dental Medicine. The donation aims to effectively eliminate the waiting list of low-income Las Vegas veterans who are waiting for dental services. The donation was made possible through Sands Cares, our global corporate citizenship program.

Our team members in Las Vegas have time and again shown their desire and dedication to help veterans charities in the local community. A number of said team members were on hand to watch Pete Boyd, senior vice president of operations for The Venetian, The Palazzo and Sands Expo, present the $70,000 check to Dean Karen P. West, DMD, MPH. After the presentation, our team members ceremoniously "ripped up" the waiting list that local veterans have been on for far too long.
