On Tuesday, December 10, 2013, Holly Madison and the blokes from Thunder From Down Under stopped by the coolest ice bar in Las Vegas to spread good tidings and cheer for a charitable cause this holiday season.

Guests, along with Holly Madison and the men of Thunder From Down Under, donated an assortment of children’s toys and treats. Sgt. Yommalat, Sgt. Ringgold, and Cpl. Baker of the United States Marine Corps assisted in collecting donation items.

Partnering with the Toys for Tots Foundation to collect donations for its annual holiday toy collection, Minus5 Ice Bar, located inside the Monte Carlo Resort and Casino, extended the spirit of giving with its winter wonderland of hand-crafted holiday themed ice sculptures, and the opportunity for guests to donate toys to less fortunate children in Las Vegas. For each donated item, guests were given complimentary 2-for-1 entry into the ice bar.

Created in New Zealand, Minus5 Ice Bar is a unique ice-themed experience where guests can touch, feel, and explore handcrafted ice sculptures and ice architecture made from 100% pure Canadian ice, all within the beauty of a -5° Celsius (23° Fahrenheit) stunning ice environment. This icy experience begins with donning Minus5 parkas and gloves, then entering a frozen fortress, complete with walls, tables, benches and a bar made completely of ice.  Guests are surrounded by and a variety of intricate works of art, carved out of pristine ice, and created by some of the country’s foremost names in the ice sculpting business.  The experience is rounded out with a state-of-the-art sound and LED light show, providing much more than just a place to grab a cold cocktail. Upon exiting, guests can purchase permanent memories of their time spent at Minus5 Ice Bar including high-quality logged clothing, framed photographs and other cool merchandise.
