Presented by Keep Memory Alive and Cleveland Clinic, the annual charity Power of Love gala was an evening of shimmer and sophistication conceived by Classic Party Rentals and held at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena on April 13. The gala honored entertainers Quincy Jones and Sir Michael Caine and benefited Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health's programs.

“Being able to partner with King Dahl and his exceptional team from MGM Resorts was an amazing honor,” says Christy Carr, Classic National Sales Consultant. “This event and their team is a dream come true for Classic.”

Classic Party Rentals enters the lives of its clients to create special moments and honor milestones. It is an honor that is not taken lightly, and some relationships such as Classic Party Rentals and Keep Memory Alive foundation highlight the possibilities and personal meanings like no other. The two teamed up with the foundation’s annual gala Power of Love at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on April 13.

Keep Memory Alive, a 501c3 nonprofit organization founded by board members Larry and Camille Ruvo, supports Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, which serves patients battling brain disorders and is based in Las Vegas. The foundation’s Power of Love gala has spent years raising money for this righteous cause through a star-studded evening featuring today’s greatest entertainers. The evening was all the more glamorous when supported by today’s premier event rental company.

This year’s event honored music legend Quincy Jones and acting legend Sir Michael Caine. The entertainers are known as celestial twins, born just minutes apart on March 13, 1933, on two different continents. The gala also celebrated the men’s 80th birthdays. A who’s who of today’s entertainers appeared to salute them, among them Amy Poehler, Bono, Carlos Santana, Chaka Khan, Chris Tucker, Jennifer Hudson, Jordin Sparks, Larry King, Snoop Dogg (aka Snoop Lion), Stevie Wonder and Whoopi Goldberg.

“Larry and Camille Ruvo are very special people with a passionate desire to improve the lives of others,” says King Dahl, executive director of event design for MGM Resorts Events. “MGM Resorts Events has had the honor to design the annual Power of Love Gala for more than 10 years.”

MGM partnered with Diversified Productions Services to produce scenic elements to augment a spectacular show, which has long been the standard bearer for fundraising events. The show, which included performances by Bono, Jennifer Hudson, Jordin Sparks, Herbie Hancock, Carlos Santana, Stevie Wonder, BeBe Winans, Patti Austin, and many more, was bookended by a progressive environmental transformation of the MGM Grand Garden Arena for a pre-function/silent auction into an event “after-glow.” The gala’s cherished guests and donors were seated in Classic’s signature Black Croc, Black Suede and Silver Chloe Chameleon Chairs. “They were the perfect enhancement to the sparkling linens and beautiful tablescapes,” says King.

“Being able to partner with King Dahl and his exceptional team from MGM Resorts was an amazing honor,” says Christy Carr, Classic National Sales Consultant. “This event and their team is a dream come true for Classic.”
