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, the UNR March from the Arch, setting up Volunteer Member parties and more! The Foundation has its yearly Classics & Cocktails fundraiser dinner, Coat Drive, Christmas shopping for under privileged youth during the holidays, and through the Hot August Nights Foundation, we adopted a school to help year-round. 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 love for our Volunteer Members to truly get involved and commit to more hours, but we appreciate any time you can give. We have different levels of membership based on the number of hours you volunteer. To view those levels click here.
