Nightclub & Bar Convention and Trade Show will once again partner with nonprofit CORE (Children of Restaurant Employees) to raise awareness for working families in need at next year’s event, taking place March 27th-29th, 2017 in Las Vegas.

The 2017 event will feature a CORE booth on the show floor, giving attendees and vendors the opportunity to learn more about the organization and discuss partnership opportunities. The nonprofit will also receive additional exposure throughout the show.

Founded in 2004, CORE has supported over 170 children from almost 100 families across the country and the industry, raising more than 2 million dollars to support the children of food and beverage employees navigating life-altering circumstances or conditions, such as a diagnosed medical condition or death of a sibling or parent or loss of home due to natural disaster, fire, or other unexpected housing emergency. CORE provides support in a variety of ways including, but not limited to, paying medical costs and hospital expenses, providing rent and mortgage assistance, and covering childcare costs and other child needs.

“CORE makes a huge impact in the lives of families in need. It is our hope that by getting CORE in front of the world’s largest gathering of industry professionals, others will want to get involved in the nonprofit’s mission.”
– Michelle Osborne, Nightclub & Bar Media Group marketing director
