Las Vegas Sands Corp. (LVS) and the Adelson Family Foundation is establishing a $4 million relief fund in memory of the people who lost their lives in the Las Vegas mass shooting, in addition to honoring the victims, and acknowledging festival-goers, first responders and medical professionals who joined together to save lives.

Sands Cares, the global corporate giving program of Las Vegas Sands, and the Adelson Family Foundation, the charitable giving entity of Dr. Miriam Adelson and Las Vegas Sands Chairman and Founder Sheldon G. Adelson, will each contribute $2 million to organizations providing aid to victims and their families, as well as to support and reinforce Las Vegas-area resources to respond to crisis and disaster situations.

"No amount of financial resources will erase this terrible tragedy or bring back those who lost their lives because of it," the Adelsons said.  "To honor the memories of those lost, we must help rebuild the lives of people impacted and provide much-needed support to the organizations helping in that effort.”
