Planet Hollywood headliner Britney Spears invited children of Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation and NCCF President and CEO Jeffrey Gordon backstage Saturday night to present the foundation with a check for $120,000.
In the last year, $1 of every ticket purchased to Spears’ resident show “Britney: Piece of Me” at Axis at Planet Hollywood has been donated to NCCF as part of the award-winning singer-songwriter’s partnership with the organization.
NCCF is a local nonprofit providing services in Southern Nevada since 1993 whose goal is to improve the quality of life for critically ill children and their families.
Spears recently announced that she has extended “Britney: Piece of Me” at Axis for two more years through December 2017.
Since opening in December 2013, “Britney: Piece of Me” has received rave reviews from critics and fans, with the show being voted “Best Overall Show” and “Best Bachelorette Party” this year.

Catering to the young and modern crowd, Planet Hollywood is a one-stop shop for entertainment with its massive shopping mall, slew of restaurants, spacious casino and clubs.
The ambiance of the casino is retro-chic meets high-tech with black granite floors throughout and colorful LED lights throughout the space. The theme carries into the 100,000 square-foot casino with 250 flat screens topping off slot machines. The casino is also home to 87 tables, a sports book and a poker room.
There's also the Miracle Mile Shops, one Vegas' largest malls, with 140 stores including BCBG Max Azaria, bebe, Urban Outfitters and The Discovery Channel Store.
Following an afternoon of shopping, guests can satisfy their appetites at one of the gourmet restaurants in Planet Hollywood, like the non-traditional approach to steakhouses at Strip House or check out the exotic Far East motif at KOI restaurant and lounge. And if guests are still looking for more, they can spend the after hours at Privé, Triq or Krave nightclubs.
Perhaps one of the resorts biggest attractions came in March with the addition of "Peepshow." The naughty twist on the story of Little Bo Peep is modern-day spin on the run-of-the-mill Vegas topless review. The "Peepshow" stage has seen visiting celebs like Scary Spice Mel B, "Dancing with the Stars" Kelly Monaco and Playboy's Holly Madison.
