I like to think that the members of Lotta Living were pivotal in helping to make this museum happen. Adriene Biondo and Chris Nichols from Modcom, Eric Lynxwiler from MONA, Christine Madrid French from Recent Past Network, Lynn Zook from Classic Las Vegas, myself and many others all worked together towards preservation of the La Concha Lobby before the Neon Museum took it to completion. Chris Green of Modcom designed a great Save La Concha logo that was passed out on many flyers and Lotta Living hosted the savelaconcha.com website where we solicited donations to be sent directly to the Neon Museum. I let the domain go once the building was on the road to rescue, but you can still see the website here:

So the snowball to save La Concha started right here on Lotta Living!
Together we can all make a difference!

I'm gonna keep on the run... I'm gonna have me some fun if it costs me my very last dime.
If I wind up broke up, well, I'll always remember that I had a swingin' time

And let's not forget Allen Sandquist, from Roadside Pictures on Flicker for sharing all of his great vintage images and update photos to keep us inspired and informed as to what was going on.
