THE STORY:

Our Event is Oct 24th. Did you know that October is National Bullying Prevention Month? This is a cause that is very close to my heart. This school year my 10 year old granddaughter has been a victim of bullying. She was pushed and pinched, called names, her hair was pulled and finally there was an altercation in class. The girl started a fight and my granddaughter was lucky enough to get out of it with just a scratch. The other girl was trying to stab her with a mechanical pencil. Not all that are bullied can walk away and some think there’s no way out – remember the number of children who have committed suicide because the bullying got so bad and they didn’t know how to stop it? You remember those kids – right? It’s gotten worse today; kids are being desensitized to crime and see bullying through TV, games, movies and even songs on the radio. We are having an event to help everyone see that there are alternatives to bullying and to help those who may be bullied find resources to help them. The more support we have the more education we can provide. That is why I am excited to represent the local 501-C3 educational non-profit www.michaeldarbyandsmile.org. This specific anti-bullying non-profit has been and continues to be a catalyst for safe learning environments in our community. The matriarch of this organization, Michael Darby, is a Heavyweight Greco Roman Olympic Training Center Wrestling Athlete who also resides on the Clark County School District Anti-Bullying and Anti-Cyber Bullying Committee. Last year he teamed up with Nevada's Governor Brian Sandoval and Las Vegas School Superintendent Pat Skorkowsky to kick off CCSD's anti-bullying "WEEK OF RESPECT!" He is a Harvard Kennedy School student and was Nominated for a Grammy for his work with Christina Aguilera and Ricky Martin. Quite an interesting fellow, if you ask me! We have named our event Bully Busters, Step Up and Stop It. On Oct 24, we will kick off the largest anti-bullying festival in Las Vegas's history. The Fire Department, Police Department, Politicians and Celebrities will all be present. We will have a myriad of activities including Kids Carnival Games, Face Painting, Bouncy House's, Clown Acts, Food Trucks, Craft/Vendors, Cartoon Characters and of course Live entertainment. We will also have a 2k Fun Walk! But, our festival won't be possible without donations and sponsors. It is only through partnerships that we are able to provide a high-quality event and entertainment for families and quality information handouts. In return, we will add your name to our page of donators. To see what we're doing, please visit bullybusters.ireli.com Thank you so very much. :)
