Support a Great Cause : VT Posse Member to Ride from SF to LA for AIDS Health Care

VegasTrippers, we're proud to serve up 5 million pages of Vegasy goodness to over a million unique VegasTrippers a year - for free. Unlike other Vegas internet destinations where tips can be found for a fee, we don't charge you a penny to glean whatever entertainment and information you can from VT. We've never asked our great readers for anything, until now.

One of the friends of VT, Ismail Elshareef, helps us strategize and implement an astonishing array of technical features on the VT website. He's given hours and hours and hours of his expertise because he knows how important it is to couple kick ass content with speedy bug free programming that has all of the latest bells and whistles.

Continuing with his selfless attitude of giving, Ismail will be joining thousands of others as they embark on a 400-mile-long bike trek from San Francisco to Los Angeles, to raise badly needed funds that will provide care for people stricken with AIDS. His fundraising goal is $5,000 - that's a lot of cheddar

We humbly request that VT readers please join us in supporting Ismail's heroic ride to fight a disease that affects EVERYONE regardless of race or sexual orientation.

A little perspective about what he's doing:
San Francisco -> Los Angeles distance is roughly equivalent to:
New York -> Cleveland
Los Angeles -> Las Vegas + 50 miles
Salt Lake City -> Denver
Kansas City -> Minneapolis
Cincinnati -> Atlanta
Tunica MS -> Houston
Chicago -> Memphis
New York City -> Montreal

A little perspective about what a little donation is equivalent to in Las Vegas terms:

$300 = One night at Paris Las Vegas
$250 = Dinner for two at SW Steakhouse/Wynn Las Vegas
$100 = 4 hands of $25 blackjack (approx 6 minutes)
$75 = 25 spins at $1 Wheel of Fortune (approx 3 minutes)
$50 = Pass line and max odds on a point of '5' at your average $10 craps table
$40 = 9 hands of $1 video poker at max credits (approx 4 minutes)
$25 = Two drinks at PURE Nightclub
$15 = 3:2 blackjack payout at a $10 table

If you could find it somewhere within your budget to set aside a small portion of your gambling wad to help others, we will promise to keep VegasTripping free of membership fees... forever.

Please Donate!

Thank you so much for helping.
