Big Dog's supports the Patrick Kelley Youth Foundation - today, on Thursday nights, and at the Peace, Love & Hoppy-ness Festival on 4/30!
Big Dog's Supports the Patrick Kelley Youth Foundation and its PK Bike Day
Please support a local charity that makes a difference in the lives of Las Vegas children
Big Dog's is proud to support the great work of the Patrick Kelley Youth Foundation, one of the really great local charities that are making a difference in Las Vegas. As part of our "Three Cheers for Charity" program, Big Dog's donates a portion of every Big Dog's Brews sold on Thursdays to local charities. Each month, we feature three great charities and we give you the power to direct where you want your donation to go. We empower you to choose by giving you a wooden nickel with each Thursday Big Dog's Brew purchase and then asking you to "vote" for which of the featured charities you wish us to support. Over the course of this program, we have donated over $20,000 to local and worthwhile charities.
One of our featured charities for April is the Patrick Kelley Youth Foundation. Also, the PKYF is also our featured charity for the upcoming Peace, Love & Hoppy-ness Festival on Saturday, April 30th.
We are also excited to support the activities of the foundation as well. TODAY, Sunday, April 3, 2016, the Patrick Kelley Youth Foundation will be hosting its 15th annual "PK Bike Day" celebration. The event will be held from 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm at Piero's Italian Cuisine, located at 355 Convention Center Drive. Last year over 300 new bicycles were donated to underprivileged children in the Las Vegas Valley. In addition, the annual recipients of the Patrick Kelley Youth Foundation college scholarships are announced.
Every penny raised by the Patrick Kelley Youth Foundation goes directly to work to benefit youths in our community by providing bicycles for Bike Day and the funding for the Foundation's next Scholarship recipient. Information on the Patrick Kelley Youth Foundation and its work can be found at the website www.pkyf.org. To donate online please go to https://www.pkyf.org/get-involved/donate/. Or come in on Thursdays, buy Big Dog's Brews, and vote your nickel towards the Patrick Kelley Youth Foundation!
If your schedule permits, we welcome you and your family to join us on Bike Day to enjoy the celebration and see your donations at work. Should you elect to bring a bicycle with you rather than donate funds, please bear in mind that we are in need of bicycles 20" and higher, for both boys and girls, with a size appropriate helmet.
