Sponsor Star Spangled Sparks
Do you love the fireworks show at the Nugget? With event costs skyrocketing, the Nugget is looking for help from the community to cover expenses. The Nugget Casino Resort is in search of corporate sponsorships and accepting individual pledges and financial contributions to help fund the fireworks show. If each person who attended last year's event donated $2, the Nugget would reach its fundraising goal! Every dollar helps! To help, please visit NuggetCasinoResort.com.
