Three Square’s headquarters became a party venue May 5.
About 300 people attended the nonprofit’s seventh annual “Fashion for Three Square,” underwritten by the Bennett Family Foundation. Guests savored food provided by Blue Ribbon, STK, Buddy V’s Ristorante, La Strega, Libertine Social and Carnevino, and satisfied their sweet tooth with desserts by MGM Resorts International.
Dishes were prepared by the food bank’s executive chef, John Hilton, in the demonstration kitchen and atrium, and one of the storage coolers became an ice bar featuring Artisanal Foods and Tito’s Handmade Vodka. Neiman Marcus presented the fashion show with models on the runway showcasing designs by Etro.
The Australian Bee Gees, singer Jessica Manalo and students from the Las Vegas Academy of the Arts provided the entertainment. The fundraiser was part of the food bank’s Bag Childhood Hunger Campaign. Three Square reached its goal of raising $2 million for the campaign, which ran from April 1 to May 31.
The funds support the nonprofit’s childhood nutrition programs including Kids Cafe, BackPack for Kids and Meet Up and Eat Up.
