Weekdays 3:00pm - 8:00pm

The Vegas Golden Knights and Allegiant Air are teaming up with the Make-a-Wish Foundation to grant the wish of a young fan.

According to an article written by Stephanie Overton on 8NewsNow.com, this 8-year-old girl, Annabelle Hanson, suffers from cystic fibrosis. A quick Google search on cystic fibrosis (CF) will tell you that about 35,000 people in the U.S. suffer from this genetic disorder, which causes problems with breathing and digestion. Thick, sticky mucus blocks airways, traps germs, and causes frequent lung infections such as bronchitis and pneumonia.

Even with all of these health problems, Annabelle Hanson of Janesville, California, loves playing hockey in her small town on the eastern slopes of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. She hopes one day to play forward in the big leagues.

Annabelle is also an avid fan of the Vegas Golden Knights. Per Overton’s article, the team is going to host the Hanson family for a weekend of fun, thanks to Make-a-Wish Southern Nevada. Her special weekend will include “having lunch with the team, pulling the siren at the game, attending the game as a special guest and getting to meet her favorite player, Mark Stone.

Incidentally, Annabelle and her family will fly to and from Las Vegas on Allegiant Air, with corporate offices right here in Summerlin. This will mark the 2,000th wish granted by the local airline. Quoting from Overton’s article: “The airline has provided free air travel to wish kids and their families from around the country and made sure they make it to their wish destinations.”

Congratulations, and thank you!

Vegas Golden Knights 'Ice Cream Brand' Hits Vegas Stores

The Vegas Golden Knights, just released four new ice cream flavors to the public that are sweeping over the Las Vegas Valley. And no, you don’t have to attend a game at the T-Mobile Arena to try them!

Secret Creamery, the official VGK ice cream partner and also a Las Vegas based ice cream shop teamed up with the professional hockey team to create a sweet treat many could enjoy. Secret Creamery started in 2019 with a passion to make “the most popular desserts in the world.” If you haven’t tried their ice cream, today may be the day.

The four Vegas Golden Knights ice cream flavors include:

  • Vegas Born Brownie: Golden vanilla ice cream with brownie chunks and cookie pieces
  • Fortress Fudge: Chocolate ice cream with dark chocolate fudge flakes and chocolate cookies
  • Victory Flamingo: A refreshing strawberry lemonade ice cream
  • Chance Tracks: Chopped peanut butter cups with fudge brownie chunks, swirled in delicious vanilla ice

Vegas Born Brownie seems to be the most popular choice! The brownie-cookie combination seems to be unmatched. We are curious if the Victory Flamingo is super tart due to the lemonade.

The ice cream comes in a one pint container that costs $9.99 without tax. The flashy containers are sparkly and golden with bold fonts to catch your eye. Each of the ice cream containers highlight a Vegas centric theme that shows hometown pride.

Whether your a huge hockey fan or an ice cream connoisseur you can purchase the four new flavors at your local Green Valley Grocery locations. Customers can also purchase the Vegas Golden Knights ice cream flavors at Secret Creamery located at 3449 Sammy Davis Jr. Dr. which is right behind the Fashion Show Mall.

You may also purchase the ice cream online on SecretCreamery.com. They ship to over 60 different locations in and around the U.S. 

We are in support of the Knights and can’t wait to see which ice cream flavor they come out with next.
