Eureka Casino Resort
Founded in 2012, the Eureka Community Initiative is a partnership between The Eureka Casino Resort and residents and business owners of Mesquite, Nevada and the surrounding area.
The partnership was created to unite people with a passion for their community and to develop new ideas to improve the quality of life throughout the region. To keep up to date on the Eureka Community Initiative, visit http://eurekacommunityinitiative.com/
Recent efforts include:
Mesquite Reads is Eureka Community Initiative's way of fighting illiteracy. Providing matching funds to allow the program to exist, Mesquite Reads is designed so that every child in Virgin Valley Elementary will be able to read at or above grade level by the time the child begins 4th grade.
The Eureka Community Initiative in 2013 purchased over 30 instruments to allow Charles Arthur Hughes Middle School the ability to have brand new instruments for their orchestra and band classes. This donation increased the total number of students able to participate and is hopefully fostering a love of music and the arts that will last a lifetime.
In consultation with local residents and businesses, the Eureka Community Initiative creates and implements local events that showcase the Mesquite resort community.
Our first event, the Mesquite Off-Road Weekend, took place in February 2013. Five thousand spectators watched the Nitro Circus motocross stunt team compete in a series of “Beyond Pro” Enduro-X races. The accompanying Off-Road Trail Rides program allowed visitors to explore the beauty of the Red Mesa while riding their very own ATV’s and OHV’s.
The second Mesquite Off-Road Weekend in February 2014 where an enthusiastic and engaged crowd watched the Enduro-X races, the “Beyond Pro” Enduro-X race as well as a stunt show from “Cowboy” Kenny Bartam and his Steel Rodeo and the opening of the new Awesome Adventure Park. Mud bogs were added to the program on Sunday.

The Eureka Community Initiative is a proud sponsor of the ParaLong Drive Worlds. The ParaLong Drive Worlds event features disabled golfers from around the globe competing at the world-famous Long Drive “Grid” at the Mesquite NV Sports & Event Complex. Mesquite has been home to the World Long Drive Championships since 1995 and seen by millions on ESPN and the Golf Channel. For more information, visit http://paralongdrive.org/
Each year since 2010, the Eureka Casino Resort and the Eureka Community Initiative produce one of Mesquite's most entertaining live shows. Featuring the Nevada Pops, fireworks illuminate the sky to the melodic rhythm of the live musical ensemble.
Since serving its very first plate in February 2011, the Eureka Community Pasta Garden has gathered at Eureka’s Town Square Restaurant on Thursday nights to raise money for local Mesquite groups and charities. To date, the Initiative has raised over $25,000 and donated over $25,000 to local charities.
