LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — iHeartMedia Las Vegas and News 3 Las Vegas have announced “Stay Home For Nevada,” a broadcast to benefit UMC Foundation/University Medical Center and The Salvation Army of Southern Nevada.

The show will air across iHeartMedia Las Vegas’ four radio stations and on News 3, on Wednesday, April 29 at 6:30 p.m. (9:30 p.m. ET).

The event hopes to encourage the community to support the two organizations and to practice social distancing.

The broadcast will feature performances and appearances by Nevada-based artists and friends of the community including Shania Twain, Nick Carter, David Copperfield, Sammy Hagar, Lee Brice, Criss Angel, Jimmie Allen, Taylor Dayne, Mat Franco, Human Nature, Murray The Magician, Puddles Pity Party, players from the Vegas Golden Knights, players from the Las Vegas Raiders, and others to be added. Nevada Governor, Steve Sisolak, is set to open the benefit.

Donations to the UMC Foundation/University Medical Center will be used for their frontline workers – doctors and nurses who are fighting the COVID-19 pandemic and help ensure they have the proper equipment and supplies during these times.

As Nevada's most sophisticated hospital, UMC offers the highest level of care in Nevada. UMC continues to lead the way in COVID-19 testing and treatment while their medical experts are depended upon by local and state officials as the frontrunners in combating this virus.

Donations to The Salvation Army of Southern Nevada will stay in the Las Vegas valley to provide services for the community in need.

The Salvation Army of Southern Nevada has expanded their shelter space and hours for serving their free community meals (500-600 daily) and have recently distributed over 6,000 pandemic kits for the homeless.
