Las Vegas Sands Corp. (LVS) has announced the introduction of the Sands Cares Accelerator Program, a community partnership endeavor in Southern Nevada that invests in growing nonprofit organizations that have the potential to more greatly impact the local community.

The Marty Hennessy Inspiring Children Foundation has been named the first member of the Sands Cares Accelerator Program and will be the recipient of proceeds from INSPIRE, a charity event presented by Las Vegas Sands' corporate giving program Sands Cares and held annually to raise funds for Accelerator program participants.

This year's inaugural INSPIRE celebration will feature a concert performance by Grammy-nominated artist Jewel at The Palazzo in Las Vegas on May 19 in The Palazzo Theatre.

The Marty Hennessy Inspiring Children Foundation helps hundreds of children get off the street and into college by inspiring children through mentoring, education, and entrepreneurship.

Conceived 15 years ago, the foundation provides leadership and character development programs that arms youngsters with a psychology for life that prepares them mentally, emotionally and physically to live happy, driven and inspired lives.
