Donation Will Support Under-Resourced Music Program For Mississippi Middle School

Recently, MGM Resorts International presented a $20K check on behalf of its meetings and conventions clients to Save The Music Foundation, a nonprofit organization committed to helping students, schools and communities reach their full potential through the power of making music. The presentation took place at the Jonathan Club in Santa Monica during the Candlelight Concert Series , an exclusive event for MGM Resorts' clientele.

Over the past three months, MGM Resorts hosted meetings and conventions clients in key markets throughout the United States at Candlelight Concert Series events, presented by leading live-entertainment discovery platform, Fever . Demonstrating MGM Resorts' commitment to creating unparalleled entertainment experiences and serving and uplifting communities, these invite-only events entertained attendees with contemporary music presented in intimate, candlelit settings. 

"It's been a privilege to work with Save The Music and contribute to the incredible work they do," said Stephanie Glanzer, Senior Vice President and Chief Sales Officer for MGM Resorts. "The Candlelight Concert Series beautifully balanced MGM Resorts' passion for entertaining customers with our unwavering commitment to making a positive impact in our communities and we were delighted to share it with our customers around the country."

For 25 years, Save The Music has invested in public schools across the nation to ensure communities receive equitable access to music education resources. The proceeds of MGM Resorts' donation will directly support an under-resourced music program for a Mississippi-based middle school.  

Charitable giving is part of MGM Resorts' larger commitment to its platform: Focused on What Matters, Embracing Humanity and Protecting the Planet. Through giving and volunteerism, the company and its employees aim to invest in and grow strong communities with special emphasis on workforce development, hunger relief and access to quality education.
