Lexicon Bank Kicks Off Monthly Community Spotlight Initiative with The B.E. A S.H.E.R.O. Foundation

Local Bank partners with non-profit organization to help eliminate the trafficking of minors in Las Vegas, the #1 ranked city for trafficking in the nation.

LAS VEGAS, January 3, 2023--- Lexicon Bank is proud to announce The B.E. A S.H.E.R.O. Foundation as its January Community Spotlight in recognition of National Human Trafficking Day on January 11th.

Lexicon is supporting the organization through advocacy and raising awareness for its initiatives to eradicate sex trafficking in Las Vegas. Members of the Bank will be attending their largest fundraiser, the B.E. A S.H.E.R.O. Awareness Gala, on February 25th at the Palms Resort & Casino and are urging the community to join in supporting this important cause.

Human trafficking is the world’s fastest growing crime each year. Las Vegas currently ranks #1 in the nation for the trafficking of minors.

Founded in 2015, SHERO partners with like-minded organizations and collective resources to provide financial and physical resources and connections to bring a brighter future for girls in vulnerable situations and victims of abuse and neglect. The organization's ultimate goal is to contribute to a future that is free of sex trafficking, exploitation, and homelessness.

B.E. A S.H.E.R.O. turns survivors into thrivers through community volunteerism and donations supporting their initiatives. Important initiatives kicking off the year include:

  • B.E. A S.H.E.R.O. Awareness Gala: The 8th annual event is being held on February 25th at the Palms Resort & Casino. Tickets can be purchased at sherogala2023.givesmart.com

  • Hygiene Kits/Feminine Products Donations: Help support women in need by donating money toward a kit or assembling a kit yourself. See the full list here or donate at sherofoundation.org/donors

Lexicon Bank’s support is part of the Lexicon Bank Community Spotlight program, a monthly initiative that highlights local non-profit organizations that are making a difference in the Southern Nevada community.

 “We are proud to be spotlighting an initiative as important as the Shero Foundation this month,” said Stacy Watkins, Lexicon Bank President, and CEO. “There is no doubt that this is an organization that everyone should know about. Empowering women is a cause close to my heart and building hope for these women is imperative to the initiative of getting rid of trafficking in Las Vegas.”
