Blind Date 2018

An enthusiastic crowd joined us May 23rd at the Vdara for the 7th annual Blind Date "dining in the dark" experience. We had a wonderful silent auction that resulted in spirited bidding and a raffle that included Golden Knights tickets and a staycation at the Vdara. As you can imagine, tickets sold like "hotcakes" for that package. Thanks to Kevin Janison of KNNV-TV for emceeing. We want to thank all of volunteers, board members and especially our guests for making this a wonderful evening!
