Nevada Builders Foundation raises over $9,000 for scholarships

Submitted

The Nevada Builders Alliance and its philanthropic arm, the Nevada Builders Foundation, in partnership with Battle Born Beer and Red’s Old 395 Grill, raised $3,870 at the Nevada Day parade, setting its yearly total at nearly $9,500.

The foundation began its Nevada Day celebration by hosting its 20th annual pre-parade breakfast buffet, selling a record 774 breakfasts at Red’s Old 395 Grill. During the parade, the foundation partnered with Battle Born Beer, serving beer to over 150 parade attendees while collecting donations for the scholarship fund. Through the addition of funds raised from the parade, the foundation has raised nearly $9,500 in 2019. Each scholarship is worth $500, currently allowing the organization to fund scholarships for 18 semesters or for nine individuals during a full year.

The foundation will hold its last fundraiser at its Nevada vs. UNLV tailgate party on Nov. 30 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Foundation members will be selling raffle tickets for a Nevada basket, which will include four tickets to the Nevada vs. UNLV rivalry game later that day. During the tailgate party, the foundation will be pouring mimosas and bloody marys for tips and donations. Raffle tickets are $20 for five tickets and can be purchased by visiting http://www.nevadabuilders.org/events.
