Two months after the tragic shooting, the Las Vegas community continues to find itself in pivotal civic engagement moments since. Latterly, the Vegas Strong Benefit Concert.


Complete sadness, anger, worry, frustration, and confusion haunted the city of Las Vegas on Sunday, Oct. 1 when attendees at the country festival Route 91 were senselessly shot by a gunman staying at a penthouse suite at The Mandalay Bay.

But on December 2, the largest benefit concert in Nevada’s history took place at the T-Mobile Arena. It honored those very same lives lost and affected. Celebrities gathered to raise money benefiting the Las Vegas Victims Fund created by Steve Sisolak, chairman of the Clark County Commission.

The 12,000 attendees, who sold out the show, were introduced to the evening’s performers and special guests by Carrot Top who commenced the evening. The comedian later introduced messages from Vegas Golden Knights players who shared their Las Vegas pride and support.
