WOUNDED VETERANS HONORED WITH HOLIDAY VACATION 

AT THE VENETIAN® AND THE PALAZZO® LAS VEGAS

WOUNDED VETERANS

To celebrate the season of giving, The Venetian and The Palazzo Las Vegas, Southwest Airlines®, and Omaha Steaks® have partnered with the Armed Forces Foundation for the ninth “Salute Our Troops,” giving back to our nation’s wounded veterans with an all-expense paid holiday vacation on the Las Vegas Strip. From Dec. 3-6, the troops will be treated to an array of world-class holiday festivities, entertainment, dining, and relaxation.

Southwest Airlines® flew 80 veterans and their guests from military hospitals in Washington, DC, and San Antonio, Texas, to Las Vegas.

Upon arriving to The Venetian by police motorcade escort, the veterans were greeted by Mr. Sheldon G. Adelson, chairman and CEO of Las Vegas Sands and his wife Dr. Miriam Adelson. Hundreds of team members from The Venetian and The Palazzo lined the red carpet cheering and waving American flags. With tears in their eyes, team members applauded and shook hands with the soldiers as they passed by.

To kick off the welcome ceremony in The Venetian’s Grand Colonnade, the Nellis Air Force Base Honor Guard presented the Colors while students from the Adelson Educational Campus led the audience in the Pledge of Allegiance. Members of the American Bombshells Patriotic Service, ambassadors of America’s gratitude to our nation’s heroes, then performed the national anthem.

Philanthropists Dr. Miriam and Sheldon G. Adelson, chairman and CEO of Las Vegas Sands, Patricia Driscoll, president of the Armed Forces Foundation, and Laura Hoagland, Southwest Airlines’ senior specialist of community outreach addressed the veterans, expressing gratitude for their courage and sacrifice. And to close out the event, Human Nature, headliners from The Sands Showroom at The Venetian, sang God Bless America.

“To walk in and see that group of people all just cheering us on like that was absolutely overwhelming,” said retired Marine corporal Ryan Lamke. “To have Dr. and Mr. Adelson host us here at The Palazzo and The Venetian, have Southwest fly us out here, and have the Armed Forces Foundation coordinate all of this has just been absolutely amazing, and even just having this opportunity is incredibly special.”

During their stay, the veterans will enjoy luxurious accommodations at The Venetian, spa treatments at Canyon Ranch SpaClub, tours of the Las Vegas Strip, tickets to the party musical Rock of Ages, poker tournaments, and a gourmet cookout hosted by Omaha Steaks®. They will also have the opportunity to enjoy the ultimate sports fan restaurant and bar, Lagasse’s Stadium; Madame Tussauds; and the hands-on experience Da Vinci The Exhibition.

PALAZZO

 

A HOLIDAY ROUND UP:

 

THE VENETIAN® AND THE PALAZZO® ‘DECK THE HALLS’ FOR A CHRISTMAS IN LAS VEGAS

 ‘Tis the Season for Holiday Revelry on the Vegas Strip

 

 

 Guests looking for yuletide revelry will find plenty of activity at The Venetian and The Palazzo Las Vegas this holiday season.

 

DECKING THE HALLS

The festive 65-foot-tall Venetian-inspired Christmas Tree is the centerpiece of Doge’s Palace plaza during the holidays.  The tree is lit with 50,000 programmable LED lights, which bring an ever-changing rainbow of color to the popular gathering spot.  The tree is adorned with more than 5,000 ornaments and weighs more than 12,000 lbs. It takes approximately 12 people nearly three days to install.

Inside, the Waterfall Atrium & Gardens at The Palazzo will be transformed into an elaborate show-stopping winter display, a creation of The Palazzo’s award-winning horticulture team.   The winter gardens will feature white poinsettias accented with champagne, gold and green.  Ice branches and 20-foot frosted birch, pine and glittering trees will complement the picturesque scene, including the waterfall and crystal “ice” ponds.  Majestic hand-crafted white and pearl peacock statues will overlook guests.

 

ON STAGE: ‘CHRISTMAS MOTOWN AND MORE’

Vocal sensations and Vegas headliners Human Nature will perform a brand new show Christmas, Motown and More” for twelve dates at The Venetian Las Vegas this holiday season, Dec. 12-24.

With an 11-piece band and special guest performances from Robin Meade, country music artist and host of HLN Network’s “Morning Express”, the acclaimed group will perform holiday hits from their new chart-topping Christmas album.

Voted Las Vegas’ #1 vocal group, the wildly popular Australian pop group will feature “Please Come Home For Christmas,” “Sleigh Ride,” “Silent Night – O Holy Night” and “Winter Wonderland.” In addition to the holiday standards, they will also perform the Motown classics they have become famous for, including “My Girl” and “Reach Out I’ll Be There.” The blending of holiday cheer with Human Nature’s signature Motown sound makes “Christmas, Motown and More” the ultimate family Christmas show on The Strip.
