No To Abuse Golf Tournament
Glen Lerner is happy to announce his sponsorship of a team for the No To Abuse Golf Tournament on Saturday March 10th, 2018. The team is made up of Pahrump Disability Outreach Program (PDOP) Skills Club parents and one club member. Skills is a special needs club run by RNG Farms and is close to Glen Lerner’s heart. Other events that he has hosted in conjunction with RNG farms include Ride ‘em Cowboy and Trunk or Treat.
Nevada Outreach Training Organization
This is not the first time that Glen Lerner has worked with this event, sponsoring and volunteering for this incredible organization for several years. It can be traumatic to be injured, either physically or mentally, and Glen and his office completely understand just that. Collectively, we have found that working with the Nevada Outreach Training Organization (NOTO), the organizers of the No To Abuse Golf Tournament, is an incredibly humbling and rewarding experience. NOTO is composed of several different organizations, foremost of which is No To Abuse. No To Abuse is a domestic violence advocacy program serving victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, trafficking, stalking and teen dating violence. Some of the services that they provide include emergency housing and shelter. This event is to help reduce their costs for the year.
The No To Abuse Golf Tournament is being held at the Mountain Falls Golf Course in Pahrump. It is a four-man best shot (scramble). It is going to be a day full of golfing, food and fun for all ages. Lerner hopes that you will come out to cheer his team on. Registration begins at 8 am, with shotgun starting at 9 am. Lunch and prizes will be at 2pm.
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Foundation honors Lerner’s generosity at the Inaugural VIP Donor Appreciation Reception. It will be held on Thursday, March 8th at 6 pm for all of his donations.

Glen Lerner’s LVMPD Work
Not only does Glen Lerner believe in the value of working with the police, but also giving back to the community and supporting the local police.
Lerner has partnered with OCE for many years with the goal to assist them in reducing violence and crime in the highest crime-ridden areas. Events that Glen Lerner has supported and created include Back to School, as well as Thanksgiving dinners, and Christmas activities like Santa in the 106.
As a direct result of this support, and others, violent crime in the areas drops by a huge amount. The offices of Glen Lerner continue to support with new events and working with the Office of Community Engagement (OCE). Look for his continued efforts in an area near you and say hi if you see his office.

There will be over forty local business and community leaders attending. This is a tremendous honor and Glen Lerner is proud to speak to such a diverse group of individuals. This luncheon encourages Las Vegas businessmen to hold themselves accountable in their professional and personal lives.
Benefit Dinner to Assist Foster Kids in Pahrump
Each year, over 750,000 children are placed in protective custody and foster care in the United States. In Nye County, 80-100 children may be in foster care at any time. CASA, Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children, is working to support these kids so they can find safe, loving homes across the country.
That is why Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys is proud to be a co-sponsor of CASA’s Seventh Annual Crab Fest, where proceeds will benefit Pioneer Territory CASA! Our Pahrump legal team is excited to be part of this fantastic event. We’re committed to supporting our community with other local organizations, and we’re thrilled we could help raise awareness for CASA and their mission.

New Mini Homes to House Veterans in Veterans Village
Veterans Village recently broke ground on a new transitional housing project for Las Vegas veterans at 50 N. 21st Street on February 26th. The mini houses of Village #2 Container House Village will be constructed out of shipping containers. These containers provide a great low-cost, affordable housing alternative for our community’s veterans.
This organization strives to create an environment specifically for United States Veterans. This includes housing as well as a 24/7 crisis center for those suffering mental illnesses. They have created local public and private partnerships to provide supplies and services for the residents.
Various community leaders, including Mayor Carolyn Goodman, where in attendance and had the opportunity to tour a model of the future container homes.
Our Glen Lerner Gives Back team looks forward to supporting Veterans Village in their efforts to benefit the lives of local veterans throughout the upcoming year. We are also honored to consider Veterans Village one of our key partners in improving the quality of life for all Las Vegans.
The offices of Glen Lerner strive to give back to the community whenever they can. This is especially true when veterans are involved. Our vets deserve a home to call their own.
There are many ways that you can give back to this prestigious organization, whether it is through Amazon Smile, or through donation of a paver with a special message on it.
