The staff and management of Land Rover Las Vegas appreciate all of their customers and the reception received when the car dealership opened in Southern Nevada. Land Rover Las Vegas gives back with special events and donations to benefit the community.
To help animals, twice a year, Land Rover Las Vegas hosts Models for Mutts to benefit the Nevada Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The front of the dealership is cleared and a 30-foot fashion runway is set up 2 feet off the floor. There is a DJ spinning the hits with smoke, lights and lasers. The fashion features beautiful models that walk the runway with adoptable dogs from the shelter. Previously, event sponsors included Whole Foods that provided the food for the models, photographers, hair and make-up artists as well as gift bags. DW Bistro served the hand-passed hors d’oeuvres, and various vendors had products on display and donated gifs that were all raffled off. All of those proceeds benefited the Nevada SPCA. The next Models for Mutts event will be held May 6.
Another spectacular event is the Land Rover Las Vegas Sunset Dine and Drive. Sales staff invites couples that are customers. The last event was located at the top of an operating gypsum mine about 4,000 feet above Las Vegas with a breathtaking 180-degree view of the city. Whole Foods donated all food, and the head chef from Del Frisco’s Steakhouse, Fernando Gurerro, along with his staff prepared their signature steaks with all the trimmings. Wonderful local acoustic guitarist Glenn Nowak provided the entertainment. Dinner was served during a dramatic sunset over the Southern Nevada skies. After dinner, guests were treated to a drive-through mine tour in a maze of dusty gypsum caverns. Del Frisco’s and Whole Foods also donated gift cards that were auctioned off, with all of the proceeds going to The Shade Tree Women’s Shelter.
Land Rover Las Vegas will host more events in 2016 as well as participate in other organized walks and races to benefit various charities throughout Southern Nevada.
