For the month of November youth ambassadors and family members from the local JDRF chapter are celebrating a month long fountain fundraiser in support of type 1 diabetes at the front of the Miracle Mile Shops’. As a part of its Caring, Giving, Changing community campaign, Miracle Mile Shops’ fountain displays a bold blue hue in between regularly-scheduled shows now through Saturday, Nov. 30. All change tossed into the popular water feature as well as the center’s indoor rainstorm will be donated to the local JDRF chapter.
Additionally, throughout the month, Pampas Churrascaria Brazilian Grille is offering guests who make a $5 donation to JDRF a two-for-one dining special valid through the end of the month. Miracle Mile Shops’ partnership with the Nevada Chapter of JDRF is part of the center’s Caring, Giving, Changing campaign, celebrating a year of change in 2013.
In addition to monthly fountain fundraisers, the Caring, Giving, Changing campaign also raises funds for other programs and organizations through community sponsorships, additional partnerships and a number of cash and in-kind donations. JDRF is the leading global organization focused on type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Driven by passionate, grassroots volunteers connected to children, adolescents, and adults with this disease, JDRF is now the largest charitable supporter of T1D research.
Since its founding in 1970, JDRF has awarded more than $1.6 billion to diabetes research. Past JDRF efforts have helped to significantly advance the care of people with this disease, and have expanded the critical scientific understanding of T1D. JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered. More than 80 percent of JDRF's expenditures directly support research and research-related education.
Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino is a 1.2 mile retail/entertainment complex at the heart of the famed Las Vegas Strip featuring 170 specialty stores, 15 restaurants and live entertainment venues. The center is home to PBR Rock Bar & Grill, boasting a Strip-side location with excellent food, drinks and bull riding as well as a multi-million dollar fountain show.
