Southern Nevada Sports Hall of Fame Finds a Permanent Home at the Dollar Loan Center

New multi-purpose venue to become the home of the Henderson Silver Knights and a variety of events and programming

The Southern Nevada Sports Hall of Fame has found a permanent home at the Dollar Loan Center in Henderson, Nev. The official announcement was made today as part of the Vegas Golden Knights’ naming rights dedication for the new facility.

A 6,000-seat multi-purpose venue located on Green Valley Parkway adjacent to The District at Green Valley Ranch, the Dollar Loan Center will serve as the home of the Henderson Silver Knights and additional events.

“Without reservation, this is one of the most exciting developments in the history of the Southern Nevada Sports Hall of Fame,” said SNSHF Chairman Dale Eeles. “Having a permanent facility to honor the contributions and maintain the legacies of our local distinguished athletes, individuals and organizations is both humbling and rewarding for our organization. We are extremely grateful and appreciative to Vegas Golden Knights Chairman and CEO Bill Foley, Kerry Bubolz and the entire organization for making this long-awaited vision a reality.”

“Southern Nevada has a rich sporting history, and we are honored to build a permanent home for the Southern Nevada Sports Hall of Fame at the Dollar Loan Center that will help recognize and showcase the incredible accomplishments of our local athletes,” said Foley.

The SNSHF Class of 2021 is a diverse group of individuals, including Larry Brown, Shawn Davis, Glen Gondrezick, Ryan Ludwick, DeMarco Murray and Amy Purdy. Including this induction class, the Hall of Fame now consists of 116 members.

First launched in 1997 to honor its first inductee – David Humm – the SNSHF Induction Ceremony and Golf Tournament has become one of Las Vegas’ most anticipated events each year. Of the 116 current members, the SNSHF has enshrined two events (National Finals Rodeo and Las Vegas Bowl), two organizations (Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority and Las Vegas Founders), four families (Cashman, Boyd, Fertitta and Herbst), seven teams (1976-77 UNLV Basketball, 1989-90 UNLV Basketball, 1983 Las Vegas Stars, 1944 Las Vegas High School Football, 1997-98 UNLV Golf, Las Vegas Thunder and the inaugural 2017-18 Vegas Golden Knights) and 101 accomplished individuals.

Proceeds from the induction ceremony and ancillary events are donated to local charitable organizations and scholarship programs that promote character development through sports.
