LAS VEGAS – Easterseals Nevada (ESN), an innovative healthcare and human services non-profit, invites the community to participate in its 9th Annual Block Party (formerly Cheers to Chocolate), showcasing food from The District at Green Valley Ranch restaurants, wine and spirits by Southern Glazers Wine & Spirits and beer by Bad Beat Brewery. Block Party tickets include unlimited food and beverage tastings.
This Fox 5 “Take 5 to Care” event will take place from 6 – 10 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 5, at The District at Green Valley Ranch. In addition to food and beverage tastings, the ticket price includes live music, caricature artists, psychics and other street performers. During the event, guests will also have the opportunity to bid on decadent silent auction items including a slot machine, helicopter tours, staycations in luxury suites at The Nomad, Aria, Park at MGM and Venetian, Jet Blue roundtrip domestic airline tickets, and many more distinctive luxury items. The evening will raise awareness and funding for ESN’s programs which provide physical, occupational, speech and nutrition/feeding therapy services to children with special needs and launch adults with physical and/or intellectual limitations into careers in the community.
“We are excited to partner with The District and Fox 5 to raise money to support ESN’s programs and services,” said Christine Zack, President and CEO of Easterseals Nevada. “Due to the significant gap between the cost of providing these services and the reimbursement rates for healthcare and human services in Nevada, fundraisers such as the Block Party ensure that everyone, regardless of their health insurance or ability to pay, has access to ESN’s services.”
Event attendees must be 21 years of age or older. Tickets are $50 per person or $80 for two and can be purchased at: https://www.eastersealsnv.org/blockparty.
