Las Vegas: Proceeds from museum admission to aid police foundation

Museums
Half-price admission to the Vegas Mob Museum will go to the police foundation in memory of two slain officers.

Visitors to Las Vegas' Mob Museum will be able to save some money while contributing to a worthy cause and honoring two recently slain police officers.

From 6-9 p.m. on Saturday and again on July 8, guests will be admitted to the museum with a minimum donation of $10 per person, half the regular ticket price.

All proceeds will go to the Friends of LVMPD Foundation in memory of the two Las Vegas police officers killed in a June 8 shooting.

Espousing anti-government views, Jerad and Amanda Miller shot and killed Officers Alyn Beck, 41, and Igor Soldo, 31, as the officers ate lunch at a CiCi's Pizza in eastern Las Vegas.

The Millers then went to a nearby Wal-Mart where they shot and killed Joseph Robert Wilcox, 31. Then Amanda Miller shot her husband before turning the gun on herself.

Beck, who leaves a wife and three children, had been with the force for 13 years. Soldo, who leaves a wife and a baby, joined in 2006.
