“It’s an honor for the Southern Nevada Ford Stores to partner with Vet Tix and offer a night out at The Smith Center,” said Gary Ackerman, Vice Chairman of the Southern Nevada Ford Stores. “Rarely do we find a philanthropic partner whose core values so closely match our own. We are excited to do what we can to assist our Las Vegas military community and their families and to provide positive experiences through Vet Tix.”
