Kidspace Bets on Vegas Theme Benefit Feb. 4

    The Circle of Friends is planning a “Vegas Baby!”-themed benefit on Saturday, Feb. 4, to support Kidspace Children’s Museum. The benefit will be held at a local country club where guests will be treated to dinner, dancing and a live auction.
    “This year, we are celebrating the city that never sleeps with ‘Vegas Baby!’” said Circle of Friends President Tricia Nur. “Every year we aim to celebrate Kidspace with an epic event and this year is no different. The benefit chairs, Kate Kohorst and Ellie Richardson, are working incredibly hard along with their committees to ensure everyone who walks in the door feels like a high roller. We have live and silent auction items, one-of-a-kind entertainment and incredible patron support. It will be a night to remember.”
    “It is our hope that we raise much-needed funds to support the museum in its goal to bring educational services and activities to all children in our community,” said event co-chair Kohorst.
    Committee chairs are Stacy Armillei, Helena Danni, Anna Hasbun, Amy Hasquet, Neha Jesperson, Emily Karlekar, Erica Loewe, Katy Lukes, Debbie Merryman, Gay Lynn Moore, Kathryn Olaiz, Romina Pailey and Judy Lin Young.
    Live auction items include a week stay at a ranch in Jackson Hole, Wyo., an opportunity to be a fighter pilot for a day and a three-night stay for two at Canyon Ranch in Tucson, Ariz.
