Greater Nevada was honored to be the title sponsor of this year's Magic Gala, which helped raise over $550,000 for the young patients at Renown Children's Hospital. We were also very excited to surprise 3-year-old Howie Zink with a brand new custom bike! Howie spent his first 23 days in the Renown Children's Hospital NICU after surgery for Gastroschisis. That experience forever changed his mom, and now he can continue to live greater on his new bike thanks to care he received.
