LAS VEGAS, May 25, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Northern Trust presented Opportunity Village with a $20,000 donation earlier this month at the Northern Trust Golf Event, underwriting the event with all proceeds benefitting the non-profit organization.
Opportunity Village serves people in Southern Nevada with intellectual and related disabilities to help develop job skills, obtain long-term work experience, gain independence, and increase self-esteem, while broadening their community and social interactions
The event was at capacity with 100 golfers and raised additional funds through on-course activities, an opportunity drawing and sales of art work that were created by participants in the Opportunity Village Fine Art Program. The visual arts program encourages artists with intellectual and related disabilities to discover their artistic talents, refine their techniques or learn new ones through an individualized artistic process set in an open studio. Northern Trust showcases two pieces of the art in their Las Vegas office.
