1 - Friends of The Shade Tree Hosts Girls Night Out
The patio at Hyde

One of Vegas’ most fun annual charity events is the Girls Night Out fundraiser (May 3), including cocktails, an auction and, this year, a performance by Zowie Bowie. For women only, the tenth annual event benefits local non-profit The Shade Tree, Vegas’ only 24-hour women’s shelter housing the homeless and victims of domestic violence, as well as their children and pets.=

Hyde at Bellagio will set the stage for the affair, and FOX news anchor Jason Feinberg will serve as emcee. With libations courtesy of Southern Wine & Spirits, the party kicks off at 6:30 PM with a live auction hosted by auctioneer Christian Kolberg. Auction items include a Camille Flawless dress, a Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week package, and designer handbags.

Not just a place to sleep, The Shade Tree provides a safe haven for physical abuse victims and homeless women in crisis, helping rebuild their lives and get on the right track with its correlating services and programs. Friends of The Shade Tree, its fundraising arm, helps to financially support the organization, with Girls Night Out being its biggest event of the year. Individual tickets are $150 per person, and tables are available at $300 per person for groups of 6, 8, 10, and 12.
