Some people don’t know the Las Vegas Roundup is not a part of Intergroup. It is a separate 501(c)3 charitable organization. The money from the marathon meetings is given to Central Office, but the rest of the funds received are used by the committee. The Roundup has been struggling for the past few years. Volunteers and donations are needed. The Roundup Board will decide on the donation solicitations. It was noted that there are 3 regularly scheduled roundups in Southern Nevada. All are separate 501(c)3 organizations and the Las Vegas Roundup is the only one who makes an appearance and gives a report at Intergroup.
