Making #VegasStronger With Community Healing Garden

To honor those who lost their lives during the Route 91 Festival last year, volunteers from Brownstein’s Las Vegas office helped prepare the Las Vegas Community Healing Garden. The garden was revealed Oct. 1 as a living memorial for the anniversary of the shooting.

Approximately 25 employees and their family and friends painted rocks on Sept. 27 to put in the garden bed using “Vegas Strong” as inspiration. Brownstein volunteers placed the painted rocks throughout the garden on Sept. 29 and helped Get Outdoors Nevada with the overall beautification project.

The Las Vegas Community Healing Garden, located in downtown Las Vegas, was built over three days by members of the community and local businesses. It features a Remembrance Wall, a grove of 58 trees and flowers and shrubs encircling an oak tree donated by Siegfried and Roy. The 58 trees were planted to honor the 58 lives lost on Oct. 1, 2017. Along with the painted rocks, flowers, photos and other mementos were placed by community members before the garden’s reveal.

Get Outdoors Nevada is the designated nonprofit partner for the Las Vegas Community Healing Garden and is home to the committee overseeing it. For more information about the garden and Get Outdoors Nevada, click here.

Throughout the year, Brownstein organizes Karma volunteer projects so employees and clients as well as their family and friends can give back to the communities in which they live and work. For the firm’s 50th anniversary, Brownstein plans to complete 50 Karma Projects in 2018.
