Lee Riseman has a proven business acumen given her successful twodecadelong career in Las Vegas. But Riseman truly means business when it comes to philanthropy and contributing to the betterment of her adopted hometown. She sits on the board of trustees for the Nevada Ballet Theatre; works hand-in-hand with the children’s food provision charity Three Square; is an advocate for saving the lives of our furry friends at The Animal Foundation; and supports many other treasured charitable arts and culture organizations.
“Las Vegas is my home, my town and my community. One needs to embrace all facets of our city and give back as often as possible. There is an abundance of need in a growing city, and one of my sweet spots is focusing on nurturing our underserved children through food programs and educational TV programs. Maybe I can’t change the world, but if I can make a diﬀerence in one child’s life, that’s one step closer to where our community needs to be.”
