Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) September 16, 2013
Mix art, cocktails and charity in a unique resort setting and good things are on the horizon.
That’s the goal of the New Vista fundraiser being held from 5-9 p.m. Oct. 5, 2013, at the JW Marriot Las Vegas Resort & Spa. Cocktails & Canvas is a live collaborative art experience featuring local artists finalizing works over a period of three hours. At the end of the evening, guests will bid on pieces during a silent auction. All proceeds will benefit New Vista. Catering is courtesy of more than 12 local restaurants including Rubio’s Coastal Grill, The Melting Pot, Garfield’s Restaurant, Rocky Mountain Chocolate, Spiedini, Grimaldi’s Pizzeria, 221, The Carmel Room, Ceres, Shizen, JC Wooloughans and Tommy Bahama. Those attending will enjoy cocktails and wine provided by Southern Wine & Spirits in Nevada. Guests also will enjoy live music throughout the event.
New Vista is a charity dedicated to providing resources to the intellectually disabled. The philanthropy broke ground December 2013 on senior assisted living homes for individuals with intellectual challenges and has also begun construction on a medical clinic with the same unique focus. Funds raised during Cocktails & Canvas will go toward furthering those aims.
“We are delighted to host this event and proud that New Vista saw our event accommodations on the Lawn at the Lodge, Ceres Restaurant and outdoor patios as a perfect fit for Cocktails & Canvas,” said JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa General Manager Mike Gaughan. “We’re looking forward to accommodating their guests. It’s sure to be a fun time for everyone involved.”
The Las Vegas luxury resort boasts more than 100,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting space capable of comfortably accommodating up to 1,400 guests. Complimentary valet parking helps take some of the hassle out of planning logistics. The hotel is located in the upscale golf community Summerlin at the foothills of the beautiful Springs Mountains and the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. Just 15 miles off the Las Vegas Strip, the hotel’s attractive surroundings on 54 acres of professionally manicured landscaping make it an ideal location for successful large events.
After the night of Cocktails & Canvas winds down, revelers are encouraged to make the most of the Las Vegas charity event with a stay in any of JW Marriott’s 469 rooms or 79 suites and sleep on soft, Marriott Revive signature cotton bedding. Guest can snuggle beneath down comforters covered in stylish custom duvets and rest their heads atop soft, fluffy down, feather or foam pillows. Guests will love roomy walk-in closets where they can hang their best suits and dresses after the art affair. For added convenience, rooms come equipped with luxurious plush robes, easy-to-use coffeemakers and personal safes. Luxury suites feature separate living areas, and terrace rooms boast balconies with scenic mountain, golf course or Las Vegas Strip views.
After a sound night’s sleep knowing they’ve helped New Vista, guests can enjoy fresh fruit, pastries, eggs benedict, made-to-order omelets and more American-style breakfast options at the hotel’s popular Ceres restaurant. Guests will fall in love with their surroundings in this scenic restaurant escape. Ceres is encircled by lush gardens and serene waterfalls, making mornings spent over coffee a true delight.
