Local Leaders in Philanthropy Honored for their Contributions
Once again, the Las Vegas community shows their generous spirit

LAS VEGAS – Las Vegas’ most philanthropic-minded volunteers, community leaders and development professionals will Celebrate and Elevate Philanthropy as the Las Vegas chapter of Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP Las Vegas) honors the winners of the 2017 National Philanthropy Day® Awards, Tuesday, Nov. 14, Grand Ballroom, Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino, 3000 Paradise Road. Individual tickets are $70 and a table of 10 is $600.

According to Association of Fundraising Professionals, National Philanthropy Day® is both an official day and a grassroots movement. Every year, since 1986 when President Ronald Reagan first proclaimed November 15th as National Philanthropy Day®, communities across the globe have celebrated by hosting events to recognize contributions of donors, volunteers, foundations, leaders, corporations, and others engaged in philanthropy.

Winners are selected by the AFP Las Vegas Philanthropy Day awards committee who vetted several hundred nominations for seven categories including Outstanding Philanthropist, Outstanding Youth Philanthropist, Outstanding Corporation, Lifetime Achievement, Outstanding Development Professional, Outstanding Volunteer Fundraiser, and Outstanding Foundation.

“This year it was difficult to select the winners as we had so many outstanding nominations,” said Sylvia Wolf, chair for National Philanthropy Day® Las Vegas. “We’re truly humbled by the impact these winners have made in our community.”
