The glamorous world of Las Vegas is a place for decadence, but also for giving. Every year The Las Vegas Food & Wine Festival, hosted by the celebrated “Shah of Beverly Hills” Alan Semsar, donates of all proceeds to one or two worthy causes. Semsar feels its important to give back, “I think it’s an inspiring way to live to always pay it forward, While most businesses worry about their debt to equity ratio, I focus on our social contribution to responsibility ratio.” In the past, the events have benefitted James Beard Foundation, St Baldrick’s Foundation, St Jude, Children’s Tumor Foundation, Children’s Hospital LA and the events have been attended by the likes of John Paul DeJoria, Robin Leach, Heidi Liddell, Joe Pesci, Katherine Heigl,… along with celebrity chefs Joel Robuchon, Francois Payard, Paul Bartolotta, Jose Andres. This year the magical experience will be set against the luxury backdrop of the exclusive Red Rock Casino and Resort & features fare from some of the best kitchens in the world. Proceeds will benefit the American Cancer Society & the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Purchase your tickets here.
