The Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada ~ Lions & Wine Oh My Recap

Thursday, March 13  – The Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada (BGCSNV) held the first ever Lions & Wine Oh My!   50 beautiful lions roared, played and interacted in front of the 400 guests that came to support BGCSNV. Guests had the opportunity to tour the Lion Habitat Ranch while listening to the evening’s entertainment, musical guest, Peter Love.  Attendees viewed the lions while learning about BGCSNV via fact boards that were posted throughout the facility. During the event, guests enjoyed beverages provided by Wirtz Beverage Nevada and Coca-Cola, as well as appetizers prepared and served by Three Square.

Funds were raised through a prize drawing and general donation. The prize drawing included five wine packages that were paired with various donated show tickets and paintings. The event raised more than $7,000 to help defray costs for BGCSNV’s upcoming gala, Sneaker Ball, to be held on May 2nd at the M Resort.

BGCSNV would like to thank Wirtz Beverage Nevada and Coca-Cola for their generous donations to the event. As well as everybody who made it out to this complimentary event .
