2019 THRIVE Conference Registration Now Open

The THRIVE Conference showcases the impressive humanitarian work happening in Nevada. Health and human services providers, teachers, community volunteers, public service employees, and many others come together for this event. The intent is to provide a forum for education and networking while unifying this diverse group under the context of social justice as too many fail to grasp the potentially transformative nature of their work.

This year’s event will be held on September 6th from 9am-12pm in Virginia City at 175 East Carson Street.  We hope to see you there!

Conference registration and Social Justice Super Hero Nomination can be found here!

Success for the Rosanne Cash Benefit

Those of us at Community Chest would like to express our gratitude to those of you who attended the Rosanne Cash benefit.  Thank you!  It was a success with 100% of the tickets selling out prior to the show and we couldn’t have done it without you.   The funds generated from the benefit will go towards supporting Community Chest programs in Storey and Lyon counties.  Again, thank you!

Before a sold-out and enthusiastic crowd, Blockchains concluded its season-long run of donating $50 for every blocked shot over the course of the Nevada Men’s Basketball Team’s 2018-2019 season. With such a talented and athletic team, the total amount donated by Blockchains to Community Chest for all of its programs came to $6,000.

In addition to the donation, Blockchains and Community Chest were mentioned at halftime of every basketball game. With many games sold out, Nevada set an all-time attendance record with approximately 150,000 people in attendance across all games.

We are so thankful to Blockchains for its support of Community Chest. We would also specifically like to thank Jeff Berns, Blockchains’ CEO, and Sarah Johns, Blockchains’ Director of Public Relations.
