Year-Round Activities in the Community

Hot August Nights is busy year-round helping to support activities in the community. Our Members have helped with the Sparks Hometowne Christmas Parade, setting up Volunteer Member parties and more. The Foundation has its yearly Classics & Cocktails fundraiser dinner, Coat Drive, Christmas shopping for area children in-need and at-risk as well as activities during the school year with our education partner, Jessie Hall Elementary School. We don’t stop there, we help more than 40 other charities in our community.


Our Volunteer Members must be 18 years or older and must commit to working a minimum of 16 hours during the Event.

We have different levels of membership based on the number of hours you volunteer.
