To say that Beverly Saperstein “loves” volunteering is the understatement of the year. She enjoys it so much that it earned her the “Nevada Senior Citizen of the Year” award for 2017 from the Las Vegas Review-Journal. She has been a Neon Museum interpreter since 2014.

Beverly, who came to Las Vegas in 1991, has volunteered most of her life. In Southern Nevada, she has volunteered at more than a dozen organizations, including Catholic Charities, Clark County Social Services, Shade Tree, Las Vegas Rescue Mission, AARP, Goodwill, Safe Haven, Springs Preserve, Cleveland Clinic, Smith Center and the Liberace Museum.

“She is a tireless source of support to her neighbors and community,” said Cynthia Warso, Director of Education & Engagement. “Congratulations, Beverly, from all of us at the Neon Museum. You have a heart as big as Nevada and we are so lucky to have you on our volunteer team.”

Why does Beverly still volunteer at age 80? Simply put, “I’ve done it because people have appreciated it….I enjoy this so much.”

As senior citizen of the year honoree, the R-J published a profile on Beverly last May. Read all about her volunteer life here.
