Sunny 106.5 is proud to continue teaming up with Mat Franco to support The Animal Foundation! Take a look at the photos & press release below:
Magician Mat Franco visited The Animal Foundation on Tuesday, Nov. 12, when he presented the state’s largest open admission shelter with much-needed animal care supplies and PetSmart gift cards.
2019 marks the fourth year in a row that Mat has teamed up with Sunny 106.5 to collect items from The Animal Foundation’s wish list in celebration of the fourth anniversary of his award-winning show, MAT FRANCO – MAGIC REINVENTED NIGHTLY. During the month-long pet supply drive, visitors to any Las Vegas-area PetSmart location that purchased a minimum of $10 worth of items from the organization’s wish list, or a gift card of equivalent value, received one complimentary ticket voucher to see MAT FRANCO – MAGIC REINVENTED NIGHTLY in the Mat Franco Theater at The LINQ Hotel + Experience.
Since 2016, the annual campaign to collect supplies and monetary gifts has raised more than $20,000 in animal care supplies and monetary gifts for The Animal Foundation, and has helped care for hundreds of lost, unwanted and abandoned animals at the shelter -- the largest in Nevada. The America’s Got Talent winner expanded his partnership with The Animal Foundation this year to help promote shelter pet adoptions during the busy summer season. The campaign, featuring Mat in print, outdoor, radio and television advertising, strengthened Mat’s partnership with The Animal Foundation and his commitment to helping some of our city’s most vulnerable residents, and aimed to encourage valley residents to adopt and not shop when looking for a new pet.
