Paint the Town

Friday, January 19 at 6:00 PM
Zappos, 400 Stewart Avenue, Las Vegas

Always an evening to remember, Paint the Town is an annual one evening only “pop up” fine art exhibit where philanthropists, artists, and art lovers converge to celebrate fine art and give back to their community.

Guests are invited to bid on the artists’ curated pieces with a very generous portion of the proceeds being donated to Aid for AIDS of Nevada (AFAN). Paint the Town was founded on the idea that artists and charity alike can benefit from the creations that artists so often provide to charitable events benefitting our community. By donating the portion of the sale proceeds normally earned by a gallery to AFAN, Paint the Town creates a win-win exhibit for both artist and AFAN.

Early ticket price is $25.00.
Prices go up to $30.00 at the door.

VIP Tickets are $50.00. VIP guests enjoy the VIP reception (6:00 – 7:00); an intimate meeting and champagne toast with the artists, and first chance to “buy it now.”

All Ticket price is applied toward the purchase of art with a value over $250.

Back bar USA will be providing complimentary beer, wine, and a specialty cocktail

Chronic Tacos will be on site serving their authentic Mexican cuisine.

Party Pics – FIDF Gala

FRIENDS OF THE IDF LAS VEGAS GALA RAISES $1M TO BENEFIT ISRAELI SOLDIERS

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 7 – More than 450 members of the Las Vegas community and out-of-town guests and supporters gathered at The Venetian last week for the Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF) Las Vegas Gala and raised more than $1 million – with help from a matching gift by Sheldon and Dr. Miriam Adelson – to support well-being and educational programs for the brave soldiers of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).

Las Vegas Sheriff Joseph Lombardo attended the Nov. 1 gala, which has become one of the Las Vegas Jewish community’s largest events and honored leading defense attorney David Z. Chesnoff.

Also speaking at the gala were active-duty and former Israeli soldiers, including Staff Sgt. Reno, a Lone Soldier – one who enlists in the IDF without having any immediate family in Israel – who lived in Las Vegas and who finished his high school education during his military service, thanks to FIDF; Yaakov Daniel, who plays a counterterrorism operative in the hit Israeli Netflix series “Fauda” and whose college education was sponsored through FIDF’s IMPACT! Scholarship Program; and Staff Sgt. (Res.) Sharon, a sharpshooter in one of the world’s only coed combat infantry battalions who engaged and neutralized terrorists attempting to infiltrate Israel.

Chairing the gala were FIDF National Board Members Dana and Michael Werner. Human rights attorney, author, and award-winning filmmaker Brooke Goldstein presided as the evening’s master of ceremonies. The gala also featured a musical performance by Kol Esperanza.

Goldstein, whose documentary “The Making of a Martyr” examined the recruitment of children suicide bombers, spoke of FIDF’s critical role in helping provide humanitarian programs to those who serve in the IDF.

“By providing crucial support systems for Israeli soldiers, FIDF ensures they are treated like the real heroes that they are,” she said. “Because these young men and women are fighting for the survival not just of Israel, but for the Jewish people. For us, for everyone right here in this room and for our future!”

Other distinguished guests included boxer and celebrity Mike Tyson; Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson; Nevada Supreme Court Justice Lidia S. Stiglich; Judges Mark Bailus, Joe Bonaventure, Elissa Cadish, Douglas Herndon, Abbi Silver, and Michael Villani; FIDF National Director and CEO Maj. Gen. (Res.) Meir Klifi-Amir; Rabbi Mendel Mintz, founder and director of Chabad Jewish Community Center in Aspen; Todd Polikoff, president and CEO of Jewish Federation of Las Vegas; Joshua Abbey, director of the Las Vegas Jewish Film Festival; Dr. William Bolt, vice president for advancement at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas; Nevada Assemblyman Stephen H. Silberkraus; Nevada State Treasurer Dan Schwartz; and Brian Watson, Republican candidate for Colorado state treasurer.

The funds raised at this event will go toward FIDF well-being and educational programs for IDF soldiers. For more information or to support FIDF, please visit: www.fidf.org.

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.”
