The Gay and Lesbian Community Center of Southern Nevada is pleased to accept a generous gift of $10,000 from Cox Communications, the area’s leading provider of digital cable television and telecommunications services. Cox Communications, as part of its commitment to diversity and inclusion, is a long-standing sponsor of The Center. This cash contribution will be used to provide services and programs to advance the well-being of the LGBTQ community.
Michael Dimengo, CEO of The Center, said, “On the wall here at The Center, patrons everyday can see that Cox Communications truly ‘powers our building.’ Indeed, they do! Through the wonders of Cox’s technology, the thousands of patrons who use the David Bohnett CyberCenter (located at The Center) have access to the internet — which opens up new opportunities for them, such as job searches and training. Cox Communications is our technology partner that supports every activity of The Center.”
“We are grateful for their generosity and support, which is truly motivated by a profound respect for diversity that translates into a respect and collaboration with the LGBTQ community. We could not be more grateful for Cox’s corporate partnership.”
In August 2016, Cox Charities Las Vegas, the grant-giving arm of Cox Communications, also awarded The Center with a $5,000 grant for its arts and culture programming. At The Center’s 22nd Annual Honorarium in October 2016, Cox Communications was honored as Corporation of the Year.
