Inaugural Vampire Gala Brings a World of Fantasy and Mystique to Life to Benefit Local Non-Profit


A recently-established, Reno-based nonprofit – Our Hearts, Our Families, Our Community – will raise money to help locals affected by aggressive disease at their inaugural Vampire Gala fundraising event on Friday, October 20, 2012 at the Reno Ballroom on 401 North Center Street.

Set amidst a vampire-inspired fantasy land, guests will revel in an evening of dining, libations, live music, dancing, local artistry and much more. V.I.P. ticket holders will be welcomed beginning at 6:00 p.m. for a three-course meal paired with Ferrari-Carano wines, private butler service, personalized photographs and an array of entertainment.

At 8:00 p.m., doors will open for all Gala guests to enjoy samplings of food, wine and brews, then dance the night away in their vampire attire. Silent and live auctions, plus an awards ceremony for the best dressed will add to the evening’s revelry through
the “witching hour” of midnight.

Gala tickets are available for $50 per person, with V.I.P. tickets available for $200 at www.EventBrite.com, or at the following Reno locations: Lulu’s Chic Boutique, L’uva Bella Wine Gallery, Sierra Nevada Chocolate Company, Labels Consignment Boutique, and the Silver Legacy Resort. Formal and vampire attire encouraged.
