Downtown Cares is a collaborative day of philanthropy and service founded and led by The Moonridge Foundation and the El Cortez Hotel and Casino in 2011, in conjunction with an array of downtown Las Vegas businesses and organizations. The sole purpose is to give back to the local community by lending a helping hand. Past recipients include Casa de Luz, Veteran's Village, 18b Arts District, The Shade Tree/Noah's Animal House, Catholic Charities, The Las Vegas Rescue Mission and Boys and Girls Club.
