Before the formal gala program begins, there will be an exclusive, one-hour meet and greet with Van Hamersveld, along with additional Nevada and national VIPs. The VIP meet-and-greet will begin at 6 p.m. followed by the main dinner program, entertainment, silent auction and honoree recognition and 7 p.m.
“We hand-selected John Van Hamersveld because of the social awareness themes captured in his art over the last five decades. His creativity aligns with our vision and we could not be more excited about the partnership,” said Tod Story, executive director.
