The UNLV Community Concert & New Horizons Band performs in concert at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 9, in Artemus Ham Concert Hall. Proceeds benefit the Lower Extremity Amputation Prevention (LEAP) Alliance Task Force Against Diabetes which helps prevent low-income diabetics in Nevada from losing their limbs. Anthony LaBounty conducts.

The funds are earmarked for subsidizing diabetes amputation prevention foot care for Medicaid patients and uninsured diabetics who cannot pay for medical care by a podiatrist. Members of Nevada Lions Clubs International will work with the nonprofit LEAP Alliance and its task force to allocate funds. Podiatrists are foot and ankle physicians who provide specialized medical and surgical care.
