LUSH Cosmetics and Friends of Nevada Wilderness: working together for Gold Butte
Friends of Nevada Wilderness has teamed up with the very
generous folks at LUSH Cosmetics to work for the protection of Nevada's piece of the
Grand Canyon: Gold Butte. Saturday, August 27, we kick off our Gold Butte Campaign at the
Cosmetics Store at the Mandalay Bay Resort on the shinning Las Vegas Strip.

or letter of support. The good folks at LUSH will raffle off some of their
great natural products, and your card or letter is your entry into the
raffle. Note: it is rumored that Friends' Southern Nevada director, Kurt,
is very fond of LUSH Charity Pot Skin and Hand Cream.
LUSH also has a few surprises in store (as well as skin and foot
treatments for our hardworking volunteers). So, join us for a wild time at
the Mandalay Bay and make a difference for Gold Butte. There is a party goin'on!
