Each year TAO Group opens the doors to millions of guests in Las Vegas and New York City. Venues including TAO Asian Bistro, Nightclub and Beach, LAVO Italian Restaurant and Nightclub, and Marquee Nightclub and Dayclub have provided customers with incredible dining and nightlife experiences. Such success has afforded the company, their employees and valued customers an opportunity to give back to those in need and inspired the creation of TAO CARES. TAO CARES, the charitable arm of TAO Group, supports local charitable organizations as well as national and international programs that benefit causes near and dear to the employees and ownership of the company.
TAO CARES will raise funds through unique offerings, as well as devote significant efforts to support selected causes. One of the first endeavors of TAO CARES will benefit the Japan Society’s Earthquake Relief Fund, a disaster relief fund to aid victims of the Tohoku-Pacific Ocean earthquake in Japan. One hundred percent of donations will go directly to Japan, contributing to the relief and recovery effort. Guests can participate in helping to raise funds by ordering special menu and drink items at the restaurants and nightclubs between April 3 and April 9. TAO Asian Bistro is featuring offerings including Water Flow Jozen Junami Ginjo Sake, a Spicy King Crab and Avocado Roll and Kobe Beef Tenderloin, while LAVO Italian Restaurant serves up the Lavolini specialty cocktail, Kobe Beef Carpaccio and King Salmon. 100 percent of sales from those items, along with a special Red Sun shot, will be contributed to the Japan Society. Two dollars from every paid guest through the doors at TAO Nightclub, TAO Beach, LAVO Nightclub and Marquee Nightclub will also be donated.

Next up for TAO CARES is the AFAN Aids Walk, taking place in Las Vegas on April 17. Employees participating in the walk and their sponsors will raise funds for Aid for AIDS of Nevada (AFAN), which provides support and advocacy for adults and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS in Southern Nevada. TAO Nightclub will also host the pre-walk party on April 16 for corporate sponsors and walk organizers. LAVO Nightclub will serve as the post party location on April 17 where all walk participants will receive complimentary entry as well as an open bar from 11 pm to midnight.
