Jaguar Land Rover Las Vegas Supports Governor’s Black-Tie Event
For more than 20 years, the incumbent Governor of Nevada has headlined the Black-Tie Invitational golf and social event dedicated to raising funds for numerous non-profit organizations that support children, teens and women in need across Las Vegas.
Even after the pandemic, the Governor’s Black Tie Event continues to be a premier fundraising event. The 19th Annual Governor’s Black-Tie Event, hosted by Olympia Companies Southern Highlands Charitable Foundation, is a massive three-day celebration and has continually raised over $1 million for local charities.
Jaguar Land Rover Las Vegas is sponsoring the event and donated $100,000.
“Jaguar Land Rover Las Vegas is proud to have participated in the Governor’s Black Tie event for several years now,” said dealership general manager Ray Dinardi. “The money raised supports local charities which have been hit hard in recent years by all the challenges of the (pandemic) closures.”
Money raised from the event supported local charities including the Boys and Girls Club of Southern Nevada, Candlelighters, Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation, Children’s Heart Foundation, Assistance League of Las Vegas, Opportunity Village, Discovery Children’s Museum and The Folded Flag Foundation.
Gary Goett is the founder of Olympia Companies Southern Highlands Charitable Foundation and CEO of Olympia Cos., developer of Skye Canyon and Southern Highlands.
Discussing this year’s event, he said, “We couldn’t do what we do without the very strong support from the community and from companies like Findlay Automotive Group and Jaguar Land Rover Las Vegas. This is exactly the type of business we are looking for when it comes to sponsorship. The support they give us helps sponsor all the different charities we work with. »
What began as a vision in 2001 has truly become a tangible effort to improve the quality of life for women and children in Southern Nevada. Goett said, “Findlay does so much to help needy women and children in our community. Findlay’s community passion makes their support all the more appreciated.
