To all my Christian friends…Happy Easter!
As a man of faith, I admire and respect all religions. Catholicism, Judaism, Latter Day Saints, Islam, Buddhists. We all worship one God. And on Sunday April 8, HE IS RISEN!
Central Christian – The Las Vegas based evangelical church (sixth largest in the nation) will host services Friday at 6:30 PM, Saturday at 2:30 PM, 4:00 PM, 5:30 PM and 7:00 PM, then Sunday at 9:00 AM, 10:20 AM, 11:45 AM and 1:15 PM. I will personally be at the Friday night service. Check out their Good Friday video at http://vimeo.com/39463474.
Live Local, Give Local, Buy Local – I’m a huge believer in “giving back to the community where you get your newspaper.” Although I donate to several national charities, my focus is on local Las Vegas charities like Opportunity Village and Olive Crest. If you are a CEO in Las Vegas that does not support your local charities and community, I urge you to reconsider and help us put Las Vegas back on top again.
Tickets are still available for Be The Change, a benefit for Olive Crest (foster kids) May 18 at the LVH. The Godfather is hosting and Clint Holmes is performing. You can pay $75 to see him at the Smith Center from the back of the room, or donate $100 and meet him live and in person. We have sold 200 sponsorships and tickets, which only leaves 50 to go! Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for all the details.
The Godfather will be speaking June 13 at the Gaming Technology Summit (www.gametechsummit.com) and November 6 at TribalNet (www.tribalnetonline.com). The topic is The Godfather’s Career Guide.
Kentucky Derby Wide Open – Derby favorite Union Rags went up in flames in the Florida Derby at prohibitive 2-5 odds, then heavy favorite Mark Valeski got beat the next day in the Louisiana Derby by a 110-1 shot. I guess that is why they run them! If Union Rags goes off at 4-1 or more in the Kentucky Derby, might be a good play.
