Today the Sands Foundation, our company’s charitable arm, donated $1 million to the new DISCOVERY Children’s Museum in Las Vegas. For 22 years, the museum has been one of Nevada’s top educational destinations, featuring more than 100 interactive exhibits based on science, art and culture for children and families.

Later this year, the museum will relocate at the Donald W. Reynolds Discovery Center–in a gorgeous three-story, 58,000-square-foot building. It will offer nine new themed interactive exhibit galleries as well as a 5,000-square-foot traveling exhibition gallery.

We’re happy to play a part in supporting this fantastic new museum. Ron Reese, our company’s vice president of communications, presented the check earlier this afternoon. Here were his remarks at the ceremony, held at the museum’s new location:
