New Vista’s Charity Gala at Rio All-Suites and Casino, Las Vegas
New Vista held their elegant Havana themed gala at the Rio Hotel and Suites Las Vegas to kick off their Foster Care program.
As the sun set with the High Roller and Las Vegas strip in the background, guests were greeted by a red carpet that led up the stairs to twinkling lights. Along with the soulful sounds of singer Sahara Prade dressed in a custom Debbie Carroll gown, hand rolled cigars and Havana Themed cocktails al fresco.
In true Cuban style, at 7pm, the band struck up and members of New Vista were led by Dance sport exhibition champion Emily Slayter in a Comparsa into the ballroom.
Sparkling black table cloths, white flowers, and green palms set the scene for dinner, which was a whirlwind of excitement; including live music, dancing, and a live auction led by John Di Domenico and Jeffrey Manning.
The event spotlighted gala honoree, Jim Blasco, stalwart of the Southern Nevada community, champion of the Nevada IDD population, and philanthropist. The Cuban themed menu included steak, chicken, and shrimp diablo with all of the traditional accompaniments and free flowing wine.
Thank you to all who donated so generously and supported the event.
