US – MGM donates land for memorial at site of Route 91 Harvest massacre

By - 3 August 2021

MGM Resorts International will donate land for a public memorial for the Route 91 Harvest Festival mass shooting on October 1, 2017.

The two acres of land will house a memorial where the festival concert took place, close to the Mandalay Bay Hotel, resulting in a massacre where more than 860 were injured and 58 were killed.

MGM said: “Having a permanent memorial commemorating the victims and heroes of October 1 is vital to our community’s continued healing, and we are honored to donate a portion of the Village site to help bring that memorial to fruition.”

Clark County Commissioner Jim Gibson added: “It was the right thing to do, and we’re all very appreciative. And they’re a part of this community. I think that demonstrates, as much as anything does, that their heart is where it ought to be.”

1 October Memorial Advisory Committee Chairwoman Tennille Pereira added: “We will create a lasting memorial to remember, but getting the input of those affected is key to the success of this endeavor.”
