Home: Where Our Story Begins, A Virtual Fall Fundraiser
A FREE virtual fundraiser benefiting families with children receiving critical medical treatment in Las Vegas. The event website will be modeled after the House That Love Built. Each ‘page’ of the website will represent a room in the House, and will include fun videos, family stories, and interactive activities for the whole family. You’ll be able to find our video program in the House Living Room, which will highlight our House Honorees and a past House family. You’ll also have the opportunity to bid on items in our Silent Auction and donate to our Gift of Home. All donations will help provide a ‘home away from home’ for the families RMHC® serves.
Food is Art
One of best parts of our annual Food is Art Gala is the opportunity to taste all the food while knowing that you are raising money to support Nevadans with ALS. In order for our guests to participate in the event safely and still have the food experience we are known for, we have developed a DIY Gala concept that allows you to try different food creations in your home with as many or as few people you are comfortable with. You can follow along with our videos from our chefs and assemble the food yourself, or have a chef in your home experience. Packages come with food, drinks, and some have centerpieces and cheese platters, plus optional add-ons for extra wine or caviar! Tickets, sponsorship opportunities, FAQs, and more details are available at http://bidpal.net/fia2020

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED - HDA Mixer
This event has been postponed. We will advise with additional information once the event is rescheduled.
Join us for an informational HDA Mixer: An Introduction to Haas Automation, True Economic Diversification in West Henderson.
Approximately 279 acres in west Henderson was purchased by Haas Automation, who plans to build on the land in three phases. Haas Automation is the largest tool builder in the western world and is also known as part of the Stewart-Haas Racing company, a former sponsor of NASCAR driver Tony Stewart.
The phases consist of building an educational campus to help with the career paths of future engineers and factory workers with College of Southern Nevada helping in the curriculum, a site for sale or lease to Haas affiliates, and space for retail outlets and other types of businesses.
“We looked at several locations and Henderson stood out as a natural choice for Haas’ first major expansion since the company was founded in 1983,” said Haas Vice President Peter Zierhut.
Haas Automation is projecting that these plans should create 2,500 jobs within 10 years.
