Nathan Adelson Hospice, Southern Nevada’s largest non-profit hospice, today announced an exclusive $100,000 sponsorship donation from William T. and Susan Walters for this year’s “Serenades of Life – Doctors in Concert” fundraiser. The annual event, being held Oct. 20 at The Smith Center, will feature various musical performances, including from those in the local medical community. The fundraiser raises both awareness and monies for the Bonnie Schreck Memorial Complementary Therapies Program at Nathan Adelson Hospice.

In 1988, William or Billy T. Walters founded The Walters Group, a Las Vegas-based holding company. He was named one of In Business Las Vegas’ “20 Most Influential Men” and was a 2013 inductee of the Las Vegas Golf Hall of Fame. His donation will help fund the Serenades of Life event, which supports the hospice’s Bonnie Schreck Memorial Complementary Therapies program. This program improves the quality of life for the hospice’s patients and loved ones, and eases emotional and physical discomfort. Patients and their loved ones may request various therapies such as Pet Therapy, Reiki Energy Work, Massage Therapy, Art Therapy, Reflexology, and Aromatherapy.

“We rely on generous donations, like this one from The Walters Group, to keep our organization’s programs strong,” said Carole Fisher, president and CEO of Nathan Adelson Hospice. “We are thrilled to have them as our presenting sponsor for this year’s Serenades of Life – Doctors in Concert event.”
