Mark Shunock Announces July 21st Edition of “Mondays Dark” - to Benefit SAFE HOUSE
With Theme “Classic Vegas”
Show Features Clint Holmes, Pia Zadora & More at Vinyl Inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino
Following the success of last month’s TONY night, 100% of ticket proceeds from the July show will benefit SAFE HOUSE. Vegas performers donating their talents to benefit SAFE HOUSE include Clint Holmes, Pia Zadora, Chris Phillips, Frankie Scinta, Peter Pavone, Tony Felicetta, Travis Cloer, Dakota Horvath, Justin Schandor, Laura Shaffer, Mary Callanan, and Jennifer Romas.
“Last month’s Tony Night was a blast and this month’s Classic Vegas Themed show shouldn’t be missed,” says Shunock, who plays Lonny in the hit “Rock of Ages” at the Venetian. “The support of the community and the performers here in Las Vegas has truly inspired me to take ‘Mondays Dark’ to a new level each month so that we can continue to raise much needed funds for local charities.”
Every month Shunock gathers an eclectic cast of guests including stars from Hollywood, the Strip, musical acts, athletes and celebrity chefs for 90 minutes of chat, entertainment - and a lot of laughs.
“Mondays Dark” partners with a different Las Vegas-based charity to raise money each month for that charity, between ticket sales and silent auction items.
Safe House's motto is “Where Abuse Ends and Healing Begins”. S.A.F.E. House was established in 1994 as a grassroots effort, by a group of community leaders concerned about the needs of abused women and their children.
Today, through an undisclosed residency, support, advocacy, counseling and community education, the organization provides a comprehensive approach to working with survivors of domestic violence from all over Southern Nevada. S.A.F.E. House focuses on each individual and the unique needs of that person to support and provide tools to ensure safety and independence from an abusive and/or violent life.
Last year S.A.F.E. House provided multiple services to over 4,000 people. S.A.F.E House has a simple value: Everyone has the right to live in a safe and supportiveenvironment free from abuse and violence.
Previous charities to benefit from Mondays Dark include Opportunity Village and AFAN (AID FOR AID of NEVADA), Nevada SPCA and the St. Therese Center HIV Outreach, The Shine Family Foundation, and The Miracle League of LV.
Tickets are $20 in advance, $30 at the door, and can be purchased by visiting Mondays Dark and are limited to 300 tickets per event. For more information call 702-485-1262. Follow “Mondays Dark” on Twitter @Mondays_Dark. To donate silent auction items, call 702-485-1262.
