Save The Date! Helping Hands 5th Annual Hearts & Hands Gala

Take a trip back in time for a vintage Vegas-inspired evening at the Helping Hands of Vegas Valley's (HHOVV) fifth annual Hearts and Hands Gala on Thursday, Oct. 22 from 6 to 9 p.m at the Keep Memory Alive Event Center. Tickets are now on sale, with proceeds benefitting essential programs to assist senior citizens in the local community.

Guests will be transported to Vegas' golden era with entertainment from Marilyn Monroe and Dean Martin impressionists, music from Harbor Lights and a lavish array of creative hors d'oeuvres from Cut & Taste. Sponsored by Humana, the event's mistress of ceremonies will be 8 News Now's weather anchor, Sherry Swensk. Auction packages including unique items from Wirtz Beverage, South Point Hotel and Casino, Papillon Grand Canyon Tours, Canyon Gate Country Club, The Smith Center, Total Wines and others will be up for bid.

Serving since 2009, HHOV Executive Director Dana Serrata has made it her mission to increase public awareness surrounding senior issues. "The Hearts and Hands Gala helps our mission of bettering living conditions for senior citizens, allowing them to maintain their dignity and autonomy while improving health and daily living," said Serrata. "We hope everyone will show their support by purchasing a ticket."

Commemorating 15 years of service, Helping Hands of Vegas Valley feeds more than 500 low income seniors each month with home delivered groceries, provides more than 9,000 rides to medical appointments annually and helps more than 500 seniors remain at home with family members through the distribution of respite care vouchers.

Tickets are $150 and a portion of the ticket may be tax deductible.  Helping Hands uses funds wisely and 91 cents of every dollar supports its direct services for seniors. Purchase tickets online at hhovv.org, under the events page.
