Three Square Food Bank hosts event to benefit children in need
On Saturday, May 7, “Fashion for Three Square,” a special event underwritten by the Bennett Family Foundation, transformed Three Square’s north campus – which ordinarily houses operations, volunteering, food rescue, warehousing and distribution – into a majestic party venue. Complete with elegant décor, fashion models, entertainment and local culinary tastes, the gathering’s attendees came together to support the Bag Childhood Hunger campaign.
The event featured fashions by Libertine, presented by Neiman Marcus, along with food provided by top Las Vegas restaurants – including Blue Ribbon Sushi, Din Tai Fung, Graze Kitchen, Giada, Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar and STK – and beverages by Johnson Brothers. One of Three Square’s storage coolers was converted into an ice bar, featuring caviar from Artisanal Foods and Tito’s Handmade Vodka cocktails. Westgate Las Vegas provided an array of sweet treats. The event also welcomed entertainment from the Shaun DeGraff Band.
Contributions made to Three Square’s Bag Childhood Hunger Campaign, which continues through May 31, will be used right here in Southern Nevada and can have double the impact thanks to generous matching sponsors Nevada Gold Mines operated by Barrick and NV Energy Foundation.
The Bag Childhood Hunger campaign supports Three Square’s childhood nutrition programs, including Kids Cafe, BackPack for Kids and Meet Up and Eat Up. These programs ensure that the valley’s more than 131,000 food-insecure children receive wholesome, nutritious meals after school, over the weekends and during the summer months.
