Boneyard Ball

The Neon Museum’s annual “Boneyard Ball” doubled as the opening party for Tim Burton’s long-anticipated exhibit “Lost Vegas: Tim Burton @ The Neon Museum,” presented by the Engelstad Foundation.
The gala at Encore at Wynn Las Vegas celebrated the museum’s collection as well as the acclaimed director, producer, writer and animator of movies including “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” “Beetlejuice”
and “Edward Scissorhands.”
More than 400 people attended the event, where superfans eschewed the event’s black-tie dress code in favor of dressing in elaborately designed costumes of Burton’s most memorable characters.
Guests dined on filet mignon and Jack Skellington lollipops, placed bets on silent and live auction items including an original artwork by Burton, and enjoyed live entertainment by Clint Holmes. After receiving the Glow Award, Burton announced that his favorite band, The Killers, would take the stage for a six-song set.
