Las Vegas Goes Dark To Support Earth Hour March 27th
It's that time again ladies and gentleman where we take an hour out of our busy lives to support Earth Hour. On March 27, 2010 at 8:30 pm, all Hotel Casinos on the Las Vegas strip will turn off their exterior lights to participate in this global event.
It's a global call to action on climate change. For the second year in a row, the city of Las Vegas will support the movement by turning off all marquees and non-essential exterior lighting for the event. Even the famous "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign will go dark for an hour.
On March 27th at 8:30pm, approximately 20 states, 65 cities and 11 countries in the united states ill dim their lights for Earth Hour 2010 and we hope that more will join the global movement as we help spread the word.
“With just a few short weeks to go until Earth Hour 2010, we are delighted to be back in Las Vegas, a city that is once again demonstrating to the world its commitment in taking action on climate change,” said Leslie Aun, Earth Hour US Managing Director. “Las Vegas is helping to turn off the lights on pollution and climate change, as we work together to build a safer, more secure future. We very much hope other cities will follow Las Vegas’ lead and join in our efforts to make Earth Hour the largest call to action of all time.”
Please help us as we spread the word! On Saturday, March 27th shut off your lights for one hour from 8:30pm - 9:30pm in support of Earth Hour 2010! Thanks in advance!
