“It is a great pleasure to host the Links for Life Charity Golf Tournament each year,” Mixer said. “We are extremely thrilled that our event has become one of the most engaging charitable events in Las Vegas, but most importantly, we are honored to be able to help so many great children’s organizations and causes with the support of our staff and generous sponsors.”

In addition to the golf tournament, Links for Life hosts poker tournaments, wine and dine charity dinners, and clothing and school supply drives.
