Music at the Nugget and fundraisers abound

The public shouldn’t have any problem finding something to do this weekend. The calendar is full.

Music is back on stage at the Pahrump Nugget, the kids can have breakfast with Santa and the Bounty Hunter is raising cash and collecting toys for Oasis Outreach.

Nathan Adelson is holding its Festival of Trees Gala and horse enthusiasts are riding and raising money for Freedom Reins Ranch.

The fundraiser party for Oasis Outreach is a big deal. Red Pillman started Oasis Outreach years ago. He is also a member of Tribe MC, a motorcycle club with chapters here and in Las Vegas, among other places. Those chapters, too, are out raising money and collecting toys for the Christmas Toy Run.

The Vegas chapter is working to help Pahrump and it’s quite a sight to see over 200 motorcycles followed by truckloads of toys and food roll through town distributing the goodies to over 300 families.

The Bounty Hunter, located at 680 East Street, is holding a “Saturday Night Fever” party to help the bike club raise funds and collect toys. The party will begin at 7 p.m., Dec. 6 and feature a dress-up contest, a dance contest, food, drink specials and karaoke.

Every donation gets a free Jell-O shot.The toy run is set for 10 a.m., Dec. 14. Anyone who wants to ride is welcome.

The annual Breakfast with Santa is set for Saturday morning from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Pahrump Valley Auto Plaza. The funds raised will support the Lions Club Letters to Santa program.

“Sounds of the Fortunes” will be in the Pahrump Nugget Stagebar Lounge beginning at 7 p.m., tonight and Saturday night.

Another big fundraiser will benefit Nathan Adelson Hospice services in Pahrump, Amargosa Valley and Crystal.

The annual Festival of Trees Gala is set for Dec. 5. Cocktail hour begins at 6 p.m. in the Mountain Falls Banquet Room. Tickets are $75 per person for dinner and the sponsored and decorated Christmas trees and wreaths will be up for auction. There will be entertainment, raffles and fun. This year, a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Rotary Club.

Saddlebag Santa is hitting the trail at 4 p.m., Dec. 6 for its first ride. The group will meet at Freedom Reins Ranch on Traci Road off of the south end of Homestead Road. The event features an evening ride and a return to the ranch for brisket and all the trimmings, a campfire and music.

Tickets are $20 per rider. Others can join the after-ride festivities for $10.

Freedom Reins Ranch works with mentally and physically challenged children and adults and is the beneficiary of the trail rides which are scheduled every Saturday. The rides culminate on Dec. 19 with an “Inspirations” ride. The riders decorate their horses and themselves and ride for the senior residents at Inspirations Senior Living. Details are forthcoming.
