This is an event for the whole city to come out and get a red carpet experience dressed in their finest formal to semi-formal threads with their sneakers on to complete the look. Here we will enjoy entertainment, eats, beverages and a champagne toast all from the talent in our community to benefit a local organization that takes great strides to be a place of shelter and comfort for children from our community going through the toughest of times.
The Child Haven shelter is a licensed facility, staffed by employees who provide safe, nurturing temporary care for children who cannot safely remain with their families. County staff provides direct care, daily supervision, and life skills development to children in this temporary placement.
“It’s very tough for children who are removed from their homes,” said County Commissioner Lawrence Weekly, whose district includes Child Haven. “When they come to us they are very apprehensive, so we want to do whatever we can to make that transition easier.[exc].”1

Child Haven is a safe and nurturing child-care center for neglected and abused children in the local areathat has gone under the radar for the majority of our community until crisis strikes. They are there for our children through impossible circumstances, so this is a beautiful opportunity for the Las Vegas community to come together and show our appreciation for their continued support and hard work through giving what we can and showing up to the first Annual Sneaker Gala.2
Funds raised from the Sneaker Gala 2019 will be used to further support Child Haven to continue to provide change in the lives of Las Vegas youth.3
