Fashion Show Luncheon

Thursday, November 16
Wolfgang Puck’s Spago, Caesars Forum Shops, 3500 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas

Each year, the most fashion-forward women in Las Vegas join our Wish Kids and committee chair, Linda Richardson, for a day filled with fashion and philanthropy. Located at Wolfgang Puck’s Spago, the intimate setting allows guests to feel like they are having lunch with their girlfriends, all the while helping grant wishes of children who are critically ill.

Since 2001, Fashion Show Luncheon has raised over $2 million and featured designers such as Valentino, Emilio Pucci, and Oscar de la Renta. Last year, we auctioned off a one-of-a-kind art piece created by Wish Kid Kaila. This work of art sold for over $3,000, allowing Kaila to Wish It Forward by helping other eligible children receive their one true wish. Now, that is fashion forward!

Casino Night at Ronald McDonald House

Friday, March 10 from 6:30 to 10:30 pm
1 Wall Street Court

We would like to invite you to a most memorable evening with Children’s Happy Faces Foundation at our signature Casino Night. Location will again be at our fine host Peter Vulai’s classic first-rate establishment Fino Wall Street Ristorante.

This year’s fun includes a professional casino set-up with the return of a “Goldman Special” Texas Hold’em Tournament, Blackjack tables, Roulette Wheel plus a Craps table with the chance to win great prizes, raffles, silent and live auctions. The event opens at 6:30pm with fine Fino Italian pass-around feast, a LIVE Jazz Quartet, chair massages provided by Oasis Day Spa, and Fur Show by “Not Just Mink.”

Our previous events held at Fino’s continue to be the talk around town and why wouldn’t they be, especially when one can do good even while we enjoy a casino atmosphere, feast on scrumptious Italian food on Wall St., drink fine wine while listening to Live Jazz and just enjoying the overall scenery. We therefore return with a vengeance and the desire to yet again please our guests while we make money for the House.

Please do not miss out on the fun!!! We have limited space and do expect an early sell-out, so we encourage you to act timely and reserve your tickets. Corporate sponsorships are always welcomed with creative exposure opportunities available.

Party Pics – Dressed to Kilt

Returning from a two-year hiatus, Dressed to Kilt came back with a bang to kick off New York Fashion Week 2017, January 27, 2017. Considered the largest and most prestigious Scottish Fashion Event in the world, Dressed to Kilt once again lured celebrities and world-class athletes from both sides of the Atlantic including Real Housewives of New York cast members Luann D’Agostino, Dorinda Medley, Sonja Morgan, Carole Radziwill and Ramona Singer. Other celeb guests included Miss Scotland, Lucy Kerr; Mr. Scotland, Tristan Cameron-Harper; Model and America’s Next Top Model Alum, Renee Bhagwandeen; NFL Superbowl Champion, Brandon Marshall of the Denver Broncos; former Navy Seal and star of CBS’ The Hunted, Andy Stumpf; Former Bachelor Contestant Olivia Caridi; Real Housewives of New Jersey Star, Delores Catania.

After the show guests were treated to whiskey tastings from Usquaebach Scotch Whisky, delectable bites and more Scottish and contemporary dancing in the High Line Hotel’s gorgeous old-world setting complete with stags and a Scottish bagpiper.

The evening was a celebration of the “Special Relationship” that has existed between the USA and the UK for over 100 years and raised funds for the Navy Seal Foundation. Cisco Co-founder Sandy Lerner sought to shed light on an additional cause by auctioning off an antique Scottish Wildcat Pin to raise money for the Scottish Wildcat Foundation aimed at helping to save the feline creatures, of which only 35 are left. Dressed to Kilt has raised significant funds for wounded Veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan over the past decade, and this year’s proceeds will benefit the Navy SEAL Foundation. The Foundation is committed to America’s elite warriors, supporting U.S. Navy SEALS, their community and providing critical support to their families.
