Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Several local businesses are offering discounted coupons this weekend, with the proceeds benefiting the "Shine A Light for Mia."
"Shine a Light for Mia" aims to raise money to install enhanced pedestrian warning signs on area streets. The event is being held in honor of Mia Decker, who was killed in October 2011 by a driver while she was crossing the street.
Businesses in the complex at Desert Inn and Durango have agreed to offer special pricing "coupons" that can be purchased between Friday the 10th and Monday the 13th. The coupons can be redeemed during the month of February, except for the pizza coupon, which is good through March. Anywhere from $2 to $5 will be donated to the fund for every coupon sold.
In addition to great deals, families can get their cars washed by Command Mobile Detail on Saturday and grab a GiGi's gourmet cupcake while they check out the pedestrian safety course, ride the seat belt "convincer" or race in the "Fatal Vision Olympics." Also, if you have children under seven you can get your child safety seat checked.
Frank Marino of Divas Las Vegas will be on hand Saturday, bringing 100 tickets to his show; participants can buy a chance to win a set all weekend.
The event is being organized by UNLV's Safe Commnity Partnership.
Businesses participating so far in the event include:
- Villa Pizza Durango - Large Cheese Pizza for $9.95 ($3.50 off)
