Las Vegas’ resident ray of sunshine, and the loser of “America’s Got Talent,” is spreading holiday cheer with the return of Piff’s Piffmas Piff-Tacular. With a sleigh of new tricks and a special guest appearance from Mr. Piffles the Red Nose Chihuahua, Piff’s Piffmas Piff-Tacular will run Monday, December 5, 2016 through Wednesday, January 4, 2016 inside the Bugsy’s Cabaret at Flamingo Las Vegas.
“When Mr. Piffles first suggested this idea I thought it was just one of his get-fat-quick schemes, but having seen the great work Three Square is doing, we’re really excited to be involved,” said Piff the Magic Dragon. “Whether it’s biscuits for dogs, tinned food for cats or fresh steak for all those pet magic dragons, bring it down to the Flamingo and we’ll make sure it gets to the right place. Just don't forget the magic dragons. Steak. Preferably medium rare.”
In addition to providing holiday cheer for all of Las Vegas, Piff, who will be appearing on “America’s Got Talent Holiday Spectacular” on NBC, December 19, will make the season a bit more enjoyable for some of Las Vegas’ furry friends, with the inaugural Piff for Pets Holiday Pet Food Drive with Three Square Food Bank. Guests who bring an unopened bag of pet food to Bugsy’s Cabaret at Flamingo Las Vegas during the special holiday run of Piff’s Piffmas Piff-Tacular, will receive a free poster of Piff the Magic Dragon.
Guests feeling extra charitable are encouraged to donate money to Three Square’s Virtual (pet)Food Drive at threesquare.org/PiffForPets. As a food bank, Three Square has unequaled purchasing power and is able to buy food for pets (as well as people) at far below retail prices—sometimes even below wholesale prices. The distribution of pet food can be maximized through one of Three Square’s community partners providing animal services, such as The Animal Foundation, Nevada SPCA and Catholic Charities’ Meals on Wheels Program.
“We appreciate the kindness of Piff - and the vision of Mr. Piffles – in putting together this important program that will help raise food, funds and awareness to help hungry pets in our community this holiday season,” said Brian Burton, President and CEO of Three Square Food Bank. “Pets in need are fortunate to have a voice in this talented and caring duo speaking up for their needs, and we look forward to working with them to make Piff for Pets Holiday Pet Food Drive a tremendous success.”
Piff’s Piffmas Piff-Tacular will be performed Monday, December 5, 2016 through Wednesday, January 4, 2017 at the Bugsy’s Theater inside Flamingo Las Vegas, where guest can enjoy the performance from no more than 30 feet from the Piff’ing stage. The show is dark Thursday, December 15, 2016 through Sunday, December 18, 2016.
