Young Electric Sign Company, owners of the sign, was established in 1920 and is a well respected company with a number of offices located in 7 western states. To insure you of the lights authenticity YESCO will track and document the day and time of removal as well as the lights placement on the sign. Removal time is set between 5 a.m. and 10 a.m. allowing flexibility with respect to their business practices. Official Las Vegas Light will pick up the lights from YESCO and transport them to our warehouse where they will be packaged with a certificate of authenticity complete with date, serial number and time of removal. The #1 light comes from the #1 slot, the #2 light from the second slot and so on. This is guaranteed!
WHO WE ARE
Incorporated in 2006 “Lights For Locals” d.b.a. “Official Las Vegas Light” is a locally owned and operated company. It is our wish to give back to the community in a unique way using the sale of original lights from the historic “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Nevada” sign as a commemorative gift for any occasion. This is an original souvenir that is truly unique and is not mass produced solely for profit. It is our belief that these lights will become the #1 souvenir of Las Vegas!
It is our philosophy to support the needs of Las Vegas with donations benefiting the locals and thereby creating a sense of community. Our company’s name reflects this outlook; these Lights are for Locals. We also hope to protect and preserve the history of Las Vegas.
We believe that community benefits are needed year round. Lights for Locals donates celebrity signed lights for local charity silent auctions. We will also challenge all celebrities who perform here, to sign a light for charity.
ABOUT THE OWNERS
Russell B. Millar - President
I was born and raised in Las Vegas as was my father before me. My grandfather was drawn to the area for employment on the construction of Hoover Dam during the great depression. My family has supported and worked in the hospitality industry for over a half a century and I am very grateful for all that Las Vegas has offered in the way of economic stability and growth of the city.
However; because of Las Vegas’ rapid growth, many historic sites have been raised to make way for the new mega resorts. Most of the properties that made Las Vegas famous are now gone forever. The “WELCOME TO FABULOUS LAS VEGAS NEVADA” sign is one of the last reminders of a bygone era that we will fight to protect. It has become the logo of the city and is iconic in its image.
Community support is very important to me. I wish to help as many organizations as possible. I want to give back to the community by supporting not one but several key outlets that I feel will directly help the children and safety of our city. I am proud to be from Las Vegas and will do everything in my power to promote the city, its events and the people in need who now call Las Vegas home.
