Police, fire and rescue, military, and others will enjoy free food and beverages inside the Public Safety Appreciation Station, previously reserved for corporate guests. The tournament and Shift4 are working with local safety agencies in Las Vegas, Henderson, Boulder City and North Las Vegas to present the venue and say thank you to these courageous men and women.
"We are thrilled to extend the Public Safety Appreciation Station this year to all public service officials," said Dave Oder, founder and CEO of Las Vegas-based Shift4, North America's largest independent payment gateway. "Providing funding for the venue is our way of showing our appreciation to the men and women of all public safety agencies and their diligent efforts to keep our communities safe every day."
