**RECAP** Breakfast at Piffany’s Raises $4,490 for Launch Weekend at Rose. Rabbit. Lie.

rose.rabbit.lie

 

cosmopolitan

 

 

This past weekend, Rose. Rabbit. Lie. at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas debuted a new chapter of amusement with the launch of Breakfast at Piffany’s.

 

The inaugural evening kicked off on Wednesday, April 30.  As midnight approached, an intimate crowd converged inside the Study at Rose. Rabbit. Lie. where attendees were greeted by the hosts of this late night affair – Piff the Magic Dragon and his Chihuahua sidekick Mr. Piffles.

As the night’s emcee, Piff thrusts his guests into a mystical world of hilarious trivia and tableside magic topped with an expert sleight of hand.  The duo both dazzled and harmlessly harassed guests with astounding illusions and competitions for points and prizes. Everyone is encouraged to participate and dine on the special late night dragon fare.  Concluding this evening of mayhem is a boisterous live auction that unfolds as guests bid for a delectable croissant, with all proceeds benefitting Communities In Schools of Nevada (www.cisnevada.org), which ended up being sold for $1,300.  All those who win the mouth-watering flaky treat join the exclusive Croissant Consortium, with the highest all-time bidder having their photo framed and placed on the shelves of the Study.

 

In all, a total of $4,490 was raised from nightly auctions for the croissant during the grand opening weekend of Breakfast at Piffany’s.  On Friday, May 2 comedian Brad Garrett along with a second guest split the coveted pastry with a combined winning bid of $1,400, but not until a man from Garrett’s team and a dainty woman with deceptively dexterous digits from another team attempted a thumb war for the top spot.  The following evening, Las Vegas Sun and Vegas Deluxe columnist / television personality Robin Leach, Communities In Schools of Nevada Board President Susie Lee, CEO of Palms Casino Resort Dan Lee, and Ellis and Yvette Landau all split the prize with a combined bid of $1,750 – the highest raised thus far.

Breakfast at Piffany’s is a complimentary experience taking place every Wednesday – Saturday from midnight until 1 a.m. in the Study at Rose. Rabbit. Lie., and is available by reservation only.  Delicacies such as Piff’s Special Biscuits, Princess Bait, The Chalice of Chocolate Milk and other edibles and refreshments are available for purchase.  All proceeds raised during each night’s croissant auction will be donated to Communities In Schools of Nevada.

To reserve a spot at Las Vegas’ most unique late night breakfast experience, e-mail RSVPiff@RoseRabbitLie.com.

Non-profit Partners Activate “Charity Lane” at Life is Beautiful Festival

Life is Beautiful Festival

Non-profit Partners Activate “Charity Lane” at Life is Beautiful Festival 

Six charity partners to set up immersive goodwill experience, Oct. 26 & 27

 

On October 26 and 27, 2013, a portion of the Life is Beautiful Festival grounds will transform into a beacon of goodwill, with the launch of Charity Lane. Six worthy causes – charity: water, Three Square Food Bank, Communities In Schools of Nevada, To Write Love On Her Arms, Love Hope Strength and Mama Hope (Stop the Pity), – will execute creative and engaging activations for festival-goers who want to give back. Additionally, the festival will fundraise for said charities and make history as the first event of its kind to employ a location-based mobile donation site via Modern Giver.

As the festival’s exclusive donation medium, Modern Giver will offer fast, remote, and instant contributions to participating nonprofits (no cash, app or download needed).  To contribute, individuals can simply visit ModernGiver.com on their smartphone, choose one of the Life is Beautiful partner charities, and donate using their credit or debit card. Life is Beautiful is the first ever festival to leverage location-based mobile donations via Modern Giver to benefit partnering charities.

Within the festival itself, attendees can interact with the six chosen nonprofits in a portion of the grounds, called Charity Lane. Charity Lane will offer educational and interactive demonstrations from participating charities with far-reaching causes, benefitting local, national and international communities:

charity: water: charity: water is a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries. Festival goers will be able to partake in the organization’s “water walk” which gives them a hands-on feel for what people without fresh, clean water go through.

Three Square Food Bank: Established in 2007, Three Square Food Bank helps offer wholesome, nutritious food to nearly 100,000 Southern Nevadans each month. Three Square will be hosting a “backpack packing” session where festival goers can fill a bag full of food. The bags will support Three Square’s “BackPack for Kids” program which assists more than 275 schools with up to 5,000 children receiving supplemental weekend meals each week.

Communities in Schools of Nevada: Communities In Schools of Nevada supports nearly 33,000 students at 43 schools throughout the state, surrounding low-income, high-risk students with a community of support and the resources they need to succeed. They will be showcasing thought provoking imagery and items, including worn and tattered shoes, shining a light on the struggles underprivileged Nevadan school children face every day.

To Write Love On Her Arms: To Write Love On Her Arms (TWLOHA) is a non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and help for those struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide. TWLOHA invite attendees to share their biggest fears and greatest dreams via provided cards. The cards are posted all over the booth for everyone to see.

Love Hope Strength:  Love Hope Strength turns concerts into lifesaving events, through their GET ON THE LIST campaign, in which they register marrow donors from concerts around the world. Love Hope Strength will be activating their now famous GET ON THE LIST “Marrow Drive” at Life is Beautiful.  Festival attendees can register to be marrow donors via a simple free cheek swab and registration form that may help save the life of someone around the globe with cancer.

Mama Hope (Stop The Pity): Stop The Pity is a movement that tells a new story about poverty, focusing on potential, not pity. Mama Hope will be giving life to their Stop The Pity campaign by setting up a video booth and asking people “How do you make life beautiful?”. The answers will be compiled and shared with the African villages the Stop The Pity movement supports.
