The Circle of Friends Vegas Baby! themed Benefit on February 4, 2017 was held at Annandale Country Club where guests were treated to dinner, dancing and a live auction.
Guests were met with Martini’s and Cosmopolitans and arrived dressed as showgirls, brides and grooms, Elvis and many other Las Vegas-themed costumes. A cocktail hour included passed appetizers and an extensive silent auction where attendees could bid on various items from movie tickets, wine, sports and entertainment packages.
Live auction items included a week stay at a one-of-a-kind Ranch in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, an opportunity to be a fighter pilot for a day, and a 3-night stay for two at the Luxurious Canyon Ranch in Tucson, Arizona. The bidding was lively and funds raised went to helping Kidspace with their programs.
Raffle tickets were sold for two chances to win either Pave diamond earrings by Sigal Diamonds, or a 1-night stay for two at the Langham Hotel complete with Breakfast, dinner at the Royce, and a $500 Gift Certificate to Place Vendome.
The Circle of Friends is a volunteer organization dedicated to raising funds for Kidspace. Since 1991, the Circle of Friends has donated more than $4 million to Kidspace, providing critical financial resources for the operation of the museum.
