LAS VEGAS – Project 150, a local nonprofit that helps homeless, displaced and disadvantaged high school students, is teaming up with EoS Fitness for the second year in a row to raise funds for Project 150’s scholarship program.
From April 1 to June 1, EoS Fitness members and guests that donate to the campaign for Project 150 receive a miniature-sized paper graduation cap/tassel that will be displayed throughout all 14 EoS locations across the valley in recognition of their support of the scholarship fund.
“The kids we’re helping send to college are our future and we want them to know that EoS is here to support them,” said Eric McCauley, senior regional vice president of sales and operations for EoS Fitness. “Our partnership with Project 150 gives us an incredible opportunity to support youth in our community, youth who might otherwise not have had the chance to earn a higher education.”
EoS Fitness is also committed to matching donations made by its members up to an additional $25,000 for a total fundraising goal of over $50,000. Last year, EoS exceeded its fundraising goal by donating nearly $53,000, raising $27,803 through donations in its gyms and then by matching those funds with an additional $25,000 company donation.
“As students finally reach that goal of graduating high school, we want them to know the journey has just begun,” said Kelli Kristo, Project 150’s executive director. “We hope the scholarship opportunity helps them pursue higher or vocational education that opens a path to a successful future.”
Project 150 will hold a celebratory scholarship awards luncheon on June 21 at the Santa Fe Station Hotel and Casino.

About Project 150
Project 150 is a 501(c)3 nonprofit charitable organization, founded in December 2011 by local businessmen Don Purdue and Patrick Spargur. The two heard about 150 homeless high school students at Rancho High School in Las Vegas who were in need of support over the Christmas break. Since that time, Project 150 has expanded and now serves more than 6,800 registered and non-registered homeless, displaced and disadvantaged high school students in more than 75 schools in Nevada. Project 150 provides these students with free food, clothing, school supplies, sports equipment, shoes, college scholarships, workforce readiness, and other needs so they can focus on school, graduate and be successful in life. For information, visit www.Project150.org, or call (702) 721-7150. Follow Project 150 on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn.
