AFP's annual celebration of National Philanthropy Day, held at The Golden Nugget on November 13th, was a resounding success. Keynote Speaker Bruce Spotleson of the Greenspun Media Group and KTUD-TV expressed his heartfelt thoughts on philanthropy, community and engagement. In his words: "This year's award winners were perfect examples of the quality of volunteers, professionals and philanthropists that we have making a difference in the quality of life in Southern Nevada."

Also, I'd like to extend a huge Thank You to our NPD Sponsors this year. We are so grateful for their support and for the wonderful media coverage we received for the event as well.
