Golf tournament to benefit local on Sept 13
Wildcreek Golf Course, Sparks, NV
Recently, Danny Utu, a pillar of our community, was diagnosed with congestive heart failure. Danny is only 38 years old. He has served in the Reno hospitality industry for nearly 20 years and has been an amazing ambassador for tourists and locals. His passion in serving other people, ensuring their happiness has helped this community in so many ways. He is one of those people that would give you his last dollar if you needed it, whether he had known you for an hour or decade. Now we have the opportunity to give back to him.
The goal of the tournament is to raise at least $10,000, with all the proceeds going towards Danny's medical bills.

Rush to Reno: Millionaires in the One Sound State
Wilbur D. May Museum, Reno
Forget Las Vegas -- In the 1930s Nevada's claim to fame was its taxes... or lack thereof! This summer, the Wilbur D. May Museum will highlight one of the state's first marketing campaigns in a brand new exhibit. Rush to Reno: Millionaires in the One Sound State explores the way state leaders used taxes to target millionaires to move to Nevada during the 1930s and 40s. The unconventional plan brought dozens of colorful characters to the Reno area, including Wilbur May, E. L. Cord, Max Fleischmann, and others. The new exhibit features many original artifacts on display for the first time, including One Sound State pamphlets and ephemera, photographs, music, videos, and more.
Rush to Reno opens June 18 and runs through September 14. Admission is $5.00 for adults, $3.50 for seniors and children. The exhibit is an official NV 150 event, celebrating the 150th anniversary of Nevada’s admission to the Union.
