SafeNest teams with Harvest Festival

Donations will get you discounts at the 46th Annual Las Vegas Harvest Festival Sept. 7-9, courtesy of SafeNest. By providing unexpired, nonperishable canned food, paper goods and baby items, patrons at the festival at the World Market Center (Pavilion 2) will get $2 off the admission price.

Proceeds will also be donated to SafeNest — Nevada’s largest charity devoted to domestic violence issues — when patrons purchase a $1 bag for their belongings and use the bag-check area during the event.

“The Harvest Festival is one of our most successful supply drives,” said a statement from Liz Ortenburger, chief executive officer of SafeNest, which provides advocacy, counseling, shelter, hotline services and therapy to abuse victims and their families. “The generosity of our community helps the shelter’s pantry stay full for almost a year.”

Featuring more than 250 exhibitors of handmade arts and crafts, as well as family-friendly entertainment, the weekend-long Harvest Festival will be open from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on Sept. 7 and 9, and until 6 p.m. on Sept. 8. Tickets, available at the door, are $9 for adults; $7 for seniors 62 and older, as well as active and retired military service members or veterans with military ID; $4 for 13-to-17-year-olds; and free for children 12 and younger.
