Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hosts Charity Benefit Circus Couture to Raise Proceeds for St. Baldrick’s Foundation
Performance and Art event at The Joint concert venue on June 26, 2011
Circus Couture presents a unique and extravagant evening called “The Revolution,” a performance, fashion and art event inside The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 26. Comprised of performers and employees of shows on the Las Vegas Strip, Circus Couture will donate the proceeds from the event to benefit St. Baldrick’s Foundation.
Circus Couture’s “The Revolution” features both a silent and live art auction as well as explosive circus performances intertwined with runway fashion. Circus Couture was born when team Cirque du SoBald, fundraisers for St. Baldrick’s, envisioned a rock ‘n’ roll charity event that would be hip, spectacular and original. In 2010 Circus Couture’s efforts yielded a $105,000 grant to Children’s Specialty Center of Nevada. They are the only clinic in the state that treats kids with cancer regardless of their family’s ability to pay for services. The event was an unprecedented fundraising and experiential success.
“This is a city built on entertainment; it’s what Las Vegas does best. It is also a community with a heart that cares about its children. Circus Couture is a natural extension of both,” said Circus Couture Artistic Director, Erica Linz. “Last year we invented the Circus Couture wheel. This year we send it spinning with a bigger and bolder spectacle to benefit Las Vegas kids. Wait until you see “The Revolution” we have planned.”
Tickets for Circus Couture’s “The Revolution” may be purchased online at www.circus-couture.com. Tickets are $35 in advance and $45 at the door. VIP reservations may be made by contacting Brett Palmer at email@example.com or by calling 702.217.0429. For additional information on Circus Couture, visit http://www.circus-couture.com/.
