PHILANTHROPY

The Movement is dedicated to giving back to the community in some form or fashion while we continue to provide entertainment and an experience that is “Not Just Your Ordinary Night” to everyone who supports us.  All of us within The Movement have been blessed and continue to be blessed in our lives.  As such, we want to share our blessings with others, whenever possible, by periodically performing some type of community service or making some type of charitable contribution.  Occasionally, we may ask those of you who support us to join us in our charitable endeavors.

While it is not possible for us to meet the need of every cause within our community, we want to make sure we do our part.  Each member of The Movement has specific causes or community interests they support as an individual; we will band together as brothers to support those interests collectively through future events, donations, and community activities.  We understand and believe in the concept of using collaborations to mobilize and maximize the effectiveness of limited resources, so we welcome the opportunity to work with other individuals and/or groups to support worthy causes.  Please contact one of us at The Movement and we will respond to your request at our earliest convenience.  Thank you in advance for your support of The Movement and its philanthropic efforts!

'TOY DRIVE (Dec. 19, 2008) We would like to thank everyone for their donations of toys during our Christmas Gala "A Soulful Christmas Party".  The toy drive was a huge success we were able to donate a truck load of gifts to the children of Child Haven.  It is this type of support which shows us that our supporters are behind us and really care as we do.  We appreciate you all and more importantly the smiles on the faces of the children showed that all of our efforts really matter.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

The Movement is proud to recognize one our managing partners, Kenneth C. Evans:

Kenneth C. Evans, a lieutenant colonel in the Air Force Reserve, introduced Sen. Harry Reid at Tuesday’s, May 26, 2009, tribute concert, featuring special guest President Barack Obama.

Evans, who owns a small development company in North Las Vegas, was stationed at Kirkuk Regional Air Base in Northern Iraq, where he commanded 188 people and oversaw $38 million in construction. He was also in charge of Kirkuk’s fire department and bomb squad. He has a Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from the U.S. Air Force Academy and an MBA from the University of Phoenix.

Evans said introducing Sen. Reid is an honor because the senator has been a strong advocate for veterans, ensuring they receive the benefits they deserve when they return from serving their country.
