Future residents of Betty’s Village will sleep easy on brand new, donated beds.
LAS VEGAS – Best Mattress and Sealy teamed together to provide the future residents of Betty’s Village a complete bed set. The donation includes 89 Sealy mattresses with coordinating box springs and Knickerbocker bed frames, and is valued at over $50,000.
“This donation is wonderful for Betty’s Village and we couldn’t be more appreciative of David Mizrahi, owner of Best Mattress, and Tempur-Sealy International for their generous contributions,” said Bob Brown, Opportunity Village President and CEO. “For many of the future residents, Betty’s Village is their first time living independently and away from their families. A brand new, comfy bed will certainly help ease that transition and provide a good night’s sleep.”
Betty’s Village, an inclusive independent and semi-independent living community, will feature 63 one-bedroom residences including 37 ground floor units, 16 townhome-style units, and 10 second floor units; 5 two-bedroom ground floor residences; and 2 four-bedroom single story residences. Opportunity Village is the property owner of Betty’s Village.
“We are honored to support the new living community, Betty’s Village and hope that a good night’s sleep on a quality mattress will contribute to the enhancement of the future residents,” said David Mizrahi, Owner of Best Mattress.
“At Sealy, we are passionate about both helping everyone get their best rest and about supporting our communities. We value our partnership with Best Mattress and are honored to support their work with Betty’s Village. Together, we can ensure more people are getting the rest they need,” said Steve Rusing, Tempur Sealy President of U.S. Sales.
The Betty’s Village Grand Opening will take place in early June 2021, with residents scheduled to move in beginning mid-June 2021. All residences will have a covered front patio to promote socialization, a full- size washer and dryer, and kitchen appliances.

About Opportunity Village
Mission: Opportunity Village is a not-for-profit organization that serves people throughout our community with intellectual disabilities, to enhance their lives and the lives of the families who love them.
Seven families who were determined to give their children with disabilities the best lives possible founded Opportunity Village in 1954. Now, more than six decades later, Opportunity Village is one of the most recognized and respected organizations of its type in the United States.
Nevada’s largest employer of people with disabilities, Opportunity Village serves over 3,000 individuals annually, providing vocational training, employment, habilitation and social recreation programs and services that improve their lives.
People supported in Opportunity Village’s Prevocational Training Programs and in jobs provided by the organization throughout the community, have collectively earned wages amounting to more than $3.7 million in 2020. They are hardworking and diligent, proudly paying taxes and happily leading fulfilling lives.
Primarily a self-funded organization, Opportunity Village generates the majority of its operational funding through its employment contracts, multiple business lines, fundraising efforts such as the Magical Forest and Great Santa Run, and grants on the federal and state level, saving Nevada taxpayers more than $37 million annually.
