(Las Vegas) – Wet’n’Wild Las Vegas today announced the Fun in the Sun for The Shade Tree Drive, an effort which will allow guests who bring a package of new socks in children or adult sizes or a case of bottled water to the park on Sept. 19 to purchase tickets for only $19.99. All items collected will be donated to The Shade Tree, and help women and children living at the shelter.
“This is a unique opportunity for our guests to do something good and be rewarded for it. That doesn’t happen a lot in life, but this is something that we’re passionate about,” said Takuya Ohki, general manager of Wet‘n’Wild Las Vegas. “We love our guests. We love our community. We are thrilled to be able to offer guests discounted admission to our park while impacting lives for the better.”
“We are incredibly thankful to have motivated and compassionate community partners like Wet n’ Wild,” said Marlene Richter, Executive Director of The Shade Tree. “We could not help so many women and children without the generosity of the people of the Las Vegas community.”
