The Venetian|The Palazzo had the pleasure of partnering with Make-A-Wish® Southern Nevada to fulfill the wish of one local girl. From April 8th-10th, thirteen-year-old Constance “Connie” Perry, a homeschooled eighth grader who is battling lymphoid leukemia, wished for a “VIP in Vegas” experience. Courtesy of Make-A-Wish® Southern Nevada, The Venetian® Las Vegas, General Growth Properties, Grand Canal Shoppes, Guerlain, Buddy V’s Ristorante, Canyon Ranch SpaClub, Madame Tussaud’s, Human Nature and a plethora of other donors and supporters, Perry and her family lived like true VIPs. In addition, Kim and Dana Wagner from News 3 spotlighted the wish on Wake Up With the Wagners!
In addition, the Team Members of the Venetian|Palazzo hosted a star sale to assist other kids in getting their wishes granted. In total, the team raised $1,936 which was then matched by both Sands Cares as well as The Disney Corporation as part of their annual Be The Force for Change initiative. A total of $7,852 was donated to Make-A-Wish® Southern Nevada!
The weekend was incredibly special and the team hopes to host more Wish Kids in the future!
