Put on your best denim and bling—it’s time to join us for our annual gala, Denim and Diamonds, A Wags and Whiskers Affair, to celebrate the love of pets! This exciting, fun-filled, unique dinner event is on Friday, October 21 at Atlantis Casino Resort Spa and will honor the Dianda family for their selfless giving and support of homeless pets.
We’re also bringing in some very special entertainment for a wild experience. Corbin Maxey, a 27 year old nationally recognized wildlife expert and biologist known from his numerous appearances on “The Today Show,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “The Martha Stewart Show” and more. For over a decade, Corbin and his reptile friends have been visiting schools, libraries, zoos, aquariums, and private events sharing his love of animals while promoting the respect and appreciation of all nature. At our event, you’ll be meeting him, along with his numerous animal friends, up close and personal—and there is nothing like it!
Other Denim and Diamonds festivities include a VIP hosted reception, silent and live auctions, diamond raffle, dinner, and of course, adoptable pets. The VIP reception begins at 5:00pm, with the main event kicking off at 5:30pm and the program to follow at 7pm. The event takes place at Atlantis Casino Resort Spa in their Grand Ballrooms.
We’re known for hosting a variety of events every year to benefit homeless pets, from adoption events to smaller fundraisers to this, our only evening gala event. We work hard to create events that offer something for everyone, while offering the maximum benefit for our animals—because that is the bottom line. As our last big event of the year, won’t you help us make Denim and Diamonds, A Wags and Whiskers Affair, a success for the animals?
Tickets are $200 per person; Tables of 8 are $1,600; and VIP tables of 8 with a hosted cocktail reception along with a meet and greet with the Dianda Family and Corbin Maxey are $2,500. All proceeds benefit homeless pets at Nevada Humane Society. For ticket details, please visit www.nevadahumanesociety.org.
