Olympia Companies SH Charitable Foundation hosted a celebratory breakfast event at the Southern Highlands to present eight local charities $1.6 million in donations that were raised at this year’s 22nd annual Governor’s Black-Tie event.
The eight local charities are: Assistance League of Nevada, Boys and Girls Club of Southern Nevada, Candlelighters, Children’s Heart Foundation, Discovery Children’s Museum, Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation, Andson, and Opportunity Village.
Founder of Olympia Companies SH Charitable Foundation and CEO of Olympia Companies, Gary Goett, along with Executive Director Angela Rock, presented each of the eight charities with checks ranging in amounts from $100,000 - $300,000. Nearly 160 attendees attended the celebration event.
Since 2000, Olympia Companies Southern Highlands Charitable Foundation, (formerly Southern Highlands Charitable Foundation,) founded by Garry Goett and Guy Inzalaco has led the charge to improve the quality of life for women and children in Southern Nevada by donating more than $25 million dollars from its various fundraising events and numerous philanthropic endeavors.
“This is one of our favorite days of the year, when get to present each charity with a donation that we know will directly improve the lives of the women, children and families they serve right here in our community,” said Goett. “For example, we know this donation will help Assistance League provide clothing and supplies for 1,000 children. Now, that’s impact. We hope that other successful companies will be inspired to get more involved in supporting these worthy organizations.”
