Snell & Wilmer Hosts Charity Mixer Attracting More Than 20 Local Philanthropic Organizations
John Delikanakis, a partner in the firm’s Las Vegas office, developed the idea for an evening devoted to discussing and developing strategies to address the challenges local charities face.
“The idea to host a reception with like-minded people who serve charities came about after a conversation with a few of my colleagues at Snell & Wilmer who serve on boards of local charitable organizations,”
Preston McMurry, a philanthropist and successful advertising executive of the Phoenix-based marketing firm, McMurry, lead the discussion and shared his insights from the perspective of a donor and of a marketing professional.
Area charities that were represented by board members and staff included: Boys and Girls Club of Las Vegas; Southern Nevada Chapter of the American Red Cross; Boys Town Nevada; SAFE House; Salvation Army; Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada; Goodwill of Southern Nevada; AFAN; HELP of Southern Nevada; Communities In Schools; CASA Foundation; Human Rights Campaign; Jump for Joy Foundation; Multiple Sclerosis Society; Quad Rugby of Southern Nevada; Rebuilding Together, Southern Nevada; The Center; College of Fine Arts Advisory Board; Foundation for Recovery; Project REAL; Nevada Entertainment Training Program; and ITN Las Vegas Valley.
