LAS VEGAS – Oct. 2, 2019 – Mondays Dark is making moves this October by upping the fun, friends and fundraising for its two scheduled events.

Tickets are still only $20 for the nights of entertainment and available at www.MondaysDark.com.
For the event on Monday, Oct. 7, Summerlin residents get to party with their pooches with an exclusive outdoor event at The Lawn at Downtown Summerlin®. A furr-tastic night, Mondays Dark goes Motown while raising money for Pawtastic Friends. This unique event is pet-friendly with leashed animals and all proceeds will be given to the animal rescue. Doors open at 7 p.m. with the show beginning at 8 p.m. Pawtastic Friends is committed to a single goal; we strive to make the world a better place for homeless animals by providing help as many homeless dogs acclimate to finding their forever home.
On Monday, Oct. 21, Mondays Dark gets strange and moves to the Music Hall at House of Blues at Mandalay Bay with a full show featuring the music of the hit Netflix show, “Stranger Things.” All attendees are invited to bust out their finest ’80s gear and party at the Sno-Ball for the night while supporting Freedom House Sober Living. Mondays Dark begins at 9 p.m. with doors at 8 p.m. Freedom House’s mission is to create an environment for those in recovery to learn to live with a quality of life they have forgotten or never experienced before, with a deep compassion and commitment for the finest services about how to achieve a first class quality of life.
