August 15, 2017 – Diamond Resorts InternationalĀ®, a global leader in the hospitality and vacation ownership industries, is proudly hosting a barbecue fundraiser on Saturday, Aug. 5, 2017, in Las Vegas, Nevada, to benefit the Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth.

Diamond Resorts has partnered with the local nonprofit organization, which aims to combat youth homelessness in Southern Nevada, throughout the year. In May, a group of Diamond Resorts National Marketing team members put together 500 hygiene kits, which were distributed to homeless youth, and in June, the marketing team members presented the organization with a $3,500 donation.

ā€œLas Vegas is home to many Diamond Resorts team members, and it is an honor to continue partnering with the Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth to help better the lives of our youth in the city where we work and live,ā€ said Michael Flaskey, Chief Executive Officer of Diamond Resorts InternationalĀ®. ā€œI am proud of our team members for their continued volunteering efforts, and it has been incredible to see the great impact we have when we work together to support our communities.ā€

Clark County, Nevada, has one of the highest homeless youth populations in the country, according to the nonprofit organization, and during the 2015-2016 school year, more than 14,000 homeless students enrolled in Clark County schools.

The barbecue fundraiser, aimed at raising awareness of the organizationā€™s mission, will feature lunch donated by Virgilā€™s Real BBQ and will be held at the Drop-In Center at 4981 Shirley Street, Las Vegas. Diamond Resorts team members will present the organization with new basketballs for the children to play with, along with items collected during a recent clothing and backpack drive to ensure they have new items for the upcoming school year.
