Last Saturday, November 14th, GEMS had the honor of assisting The Red Shoe Society Las Vegas in their inaugural “Pulling Together” charity event with the proceeds benefiting the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Las Vegas. GEMS was able to assist in the raising of over $11,00o. That’s $11,000 to support families and their sick children!
We donated the use of our emergency vehicles for this event where teams then raced to pull them across the finish lines. Team “Never Too Old’ came out ahead at 13.08 seconds. Congratulations team!
We’re happy to be able to support the Ronald McDonald House in their mission towards achieving a world where all children have access to medical care and their families are supported and actively involved in their children’s care. Great job to everyone who put together the event and all the participating teams and sponsors.
Below you can check out the great video our CEO Sam Scheller put together at the event and you’ll see just how many people it takes to pull an emergency vehicle.
