Down Syndrome Organization of Southern Nevada (DSOSN), the leading nonprofit organization and primary source of education, information, and support for Southern Nevada families affected by Down syndrome, announces its first-ever “I’ve Got the Music in Me” Concert in the Park on June 26 from 10 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. at Craig Ranch Regional Park (628 W Craig Rd, North Las Vegas, NV 89032).
“With the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions, we wanted to find a way to bring our members and the Las Vegas community together once again,” says Jeffrey Grassi, acting Executive Director and Board Chairman of DSOSN. “The concert in the park will allow everyone a chance to enjoy a day full of live music, dancing, bonding, and family fun while raising awareness of our organization.”
Designed to raise funds and awareness about the programs and services DSOSN offers to the Southern Nevada Down syndrome community, the concert in the park will be open to the Las Vegas community and feature live sets from local bands and musicians along with a range of food trucks for attendees to enjoy. “We are excited to have The Outside In Jazz Duo, Carlos Guerrero, The Parametrics, and Kelly and The Strays perform for everyone in attendance,” says Maureen Tinnes, event chair and Board Secretary of DSOSN. “We are also excited to have Kountry Kettle Popcorn, Snowie ParadIce, and Cactus Jack’s Outlaw Grill available on-site all day.”
Attendees are encouraged to lather on sunscreen and bring their own blankets or lawn chairs to enjoy the music comfortably. Due to the number of shaded areas at the venue, tents and umbrellas are not allowed. Outside coolers are not permitted as well. Proceeds raised from the “I’ve Got the Music in Me” Concert in the Park will remain local and allow DSOSN to continue providing programs, activities, resources and support to individuals and families with Down syndrome in Southern Nevada.
