LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
Volunteers in Medicine of Southern Nevada will be dancing into the Palazzo this Saturday. The nonprofit organization is hosting its fourth annual Medicine Ball to honor top volunteers, innovators, and charitable doctors who have helped in the effort to provide accessible health care to the Southern Nevada community.
The evening starts with a cocktail party and silent auction at 6 p.m. in the Palazzo ballroom. Dinner, dancing and a live auction will follow at 7:30 p.m.
The star-studded event will be emceed by Mr. Las Vegas himself, Wayne Newton, and will include performances by Golden Globe winning actress, Pia Zadora, and Elvis Presley impersonator, James Lowery.
Dr. Florence Jameson President and co-founder of VMSN says the event is just one way of celebrating the volunteers who give back to the community.
"Over the years, this event has become a ‘who's who' of the dedicated volunteers and medical practitioners that give their time and energy to Southern Nevadans," she says. "It is a time to not only have fun, but to recognize the wonderful people who are doing remarkable things in our community."
All proceeds will help support the organization's operations in Southern Nevada, which already provides more than $4 million in health care every year, using less than $1-million in donations.
