Encino, CA (October 19, 2017) –  ACM Lifting Lives® announced today a donation of $250,000 to three key organizations in support of those affected by the recent Las Vegas tragedy.

A $200,000 donation will be made to MGM Resorts Foundation “Victim Relief & First Responders’ Fund,” which has been established to help the Las Vegas community heal and recover by providing humanitarian aid for victims, their families and organizations that serve first responders.

The National Compassion Fund will receive a donation of $25,000, with 100% of the funds to be distributed directly to the Las Vegas victims. Additionally, Friends of Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Foundation will receive $25,000 for providing counseling and support for the first responders, victims and the families, as they cope with the aftermath.

“This money will go a long way in aid­ing the healing and recovery of people who so desperately need it,” said ACM CEO Pete Fisher. “Our sizable contribu­tion to the MGM Resorts Foundation not only will aid victims, but will send a very special sentiment to our long-time part­ners in Vegas.”
