WE’RE NOT ON NASDAQ. WE’RE ON WESTWOOD & WALDMAN.

We are a family. We are friends. We are individuals. Collectively, we give our time, talents & passions to selflessly benefit one chosen charity on a single day from within our community each year. We don’t do this for the purposes of social praises or self-promotion. We do this to show others what they can do from their own backyard.

And ours.

WE’VE RAISED OVER $100K [AND COUNTING] IN LESS THAN 4 DAYS. NO LESS.

We started in 2008, and our event is only 1 day each year. Ergo, 4 days at an average of $30K + per day, and there you have it. By comparison to what some charities raise, it’s peanuts. But remember, we’re doing it out of our own backyard with people donating 100% of their time and talents so that every dollar raised goes to the charity of choice. We’re about passion, friendship, and community.

More importantly, we’re getting people involved, they’re getting their friends involved, and so on. It’s 100% grassroots, which by definition: GRASS-ROOTS (also grassroots |ˈgrasˌroōts|) – plural noun: The most basic level of an activity or organization. Ordinary people regarded as the main body of an organization's membership.

If you have money, great. If you have heart, even better.

OUR RECIPE IS AS SIMPLE AS BOILING WATER. MAYBE SIMPLER.

When we started, we just made a list of the things that we were passionate about, and then enlisted all of our friends who were passionate about those same things.

Our list: Fashion, local art, wine, family, and downtown Las Vegas.

From there, we defined what we were capable of doing. In our case, we have an old ranch house that was built in 1955, and it sits on nearly an acre in a fairly affluent (and definitely unique) part of downtown Las Vegas. We also have quite a bit of creativity running through our veins, some amazing friends who can do some amazing things, and an unrelenting altruistic belief that good people can collectively make a difference in their community.

Put it all together in an interesting way, open the doors to the whole community, and voila!
