Las Vegas BikeFest: Nevada Cancer Charity


2011 Las Vegas Bikefest

Las Vegas BikeFest event producers have chosen Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation as the recipient of charitable donations received through events at the 2011 Las Vegas BikeFest.

The major fundraiser will be the Annual Las Vegas BikeFest Poker Tournament, to be held Saturday, Oct. 1, at 5 p.m. at the Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino.

Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation is a local organization, founded in 1993, serving over 200 new diagnoses each year in the Southern Nevada community. Along with children newly diagnosed, NCCF continues to serve over 100 more children that are in active treatment or suffer from secondary effects (or side effects) from treatments and disease causing physical and educational disabilities as well as secondary cancers.

NCCF’s biggest impact program, Camp Cartwheel, is the largest camp in the western region welcoming 135 critically ill children and their siblings along with over 160 volunteers.

Jeff Gordon (President/CEO of the Foundation) says: “We already have a relationship with many of the Las Vegas BikeFest supporters such as Hogs & Heifers and Las Vegas Events, so this is a natural tie-in. Knowing how important children’s causes are to the biker community, we are looking forward to thanking everyone for their support at the event.”

Mindi Cherry (Event Manager) says: “To be able to give back to a local charity who is so active is very important to Las Vegas BikeFest. We hope this is the beginning of a great partnership for years to come.”

More information regarding the Poker Tournament and the 2011 Las Vegas BikeFest is now available on the event’s website,

Las Vegas BikeFest 2011 will be held Sept. 29 – Oct. 2, 2011 at Cashman Center, 850 Las Vegas Blvd. North, Las Vegas, NV 89101, as well as returning its headquarters to the Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino on the world-famous and wildly popular Fremont Street Experience.
