MGM Resorts donates $3 million to aid Las Vegas shooting victims

4 October 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- MGM Resorts International, the global entertainment organization, announced today that it will provide donations through the MGM Resorts Foundation in the amount of $3 million to fund humanitarian assistance to victims of the Las Vegas shooting, along with organizations who provide support to those who are first on the scene to assist in traumatic events.

"There are simply no words to express our grief and outrage over this senseless and horrific attack on our community," said Jim Murren, Chairman and CEO of MGM Resorts. "Yet in this devastating time, we are inspired. From the heroic stories of victims on the ground who placed the safety of strangers and loved ones before themselves, to the incredible bravery of first responders who rushed in when others were rushing out and who surely lessened the damage, to the knowledge of so many good and incomplete works done by those we lost — we are collectively drawing strength and faith to meet the difficult days ahead. With this donation, we hope to make a difference to those who were harmed and those who are left behind.

"We also wish to recognize the awesome contributions of first responders, not just here in Las Vegas but around the U.S., who give so completely of themselves when disaster strikes. On behalf of our Las Vegas community, I wish to say thank you to our global community who remind us from moment to moment that we are not alone."

This donation is in addition to ongoing efforts MGM Resorts is providing to victims, their families and first responders, including lodging, meals, air and ground transportation, and grief counseling.
