Vegas’ Night to Give Back

Created in 2013 by Cheryl Daro & Mark Shunock, Mondays Dark is Vegas’ premiere variety show for a cause. Twice a month, Mondays Dark gathers an eclectic cast of guests—including musical acts and stars from Hollywood and The Strip—for 90 minutes of chat, entertainment and a lot of laughs.

The mission of Mondays Dark is to raise $10K in 90 minutes. The $20 variety show has become one of the hottest tickets in town and the list of charities waiting to partner with Mondays Dark continues to grow. Partnering with over 180 local organizations, Mondays Dark has raised over 1.8 million dollars and every penny has stayed here in Las Vegas.

Mondays Dark has been named “Best of the City” and “Best of Vegas” numerous times over its existence. In addition, Shunock received the Angel Award for Cultural Advocate/Entertainer of the Year Award from Vegas Inc., Best Philanthropist Award from LV Review Journal, as well as The Impact Award from the Association of Fundraising Professionals Las Vegas Chapter.
