Las Vegas host committee’s community initiatives to continue beyond the Super Bowl

When senior citizens in North Las Vegas mentioned to Clark County Commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick awhile back that they wanted to know more about the Super Bowl coming to Southern Nevada, Kirkpatrick invited members of the Las Vegas Super Bowl Host Committee to speak with her constituents at one of the senior citizen luncheons she hosts quarterly.

Not only did they listen to the seniors, the members served them lunch, Kirkpatrick said.

It’s one of the many ways Kirkpatrick said the host committee, with some help from the National Football League, has committed itself to supporting the community ahead of the big game Feb. 11 at Allegiant Stadium.

“Our community is really a special community — we’re small but mighty,” Kirkpatrick said. “But what I would really like to stress is the impact is across the community and in every different group of folks, and I think that’s pretty hard to do and I think they have exceeded it.”
