Bank of Nevada President Rachelle Crupi is among eight philanthropic women in Southern Nevada who will be honored during the Vegas GIVES event on Thursday, November 2, 2017, at the Ridges in Summerlin (Photo credit: Eric Ita).
Vegas GIVES allows each of the eight honorees to raise money for their designated charity by selling tickets to the fundraising event. One hundred percent of the sales price for tickets sold in honor of Rachelle Crupi will benefit the Las Vegas Philharmonic. Crupi and her husband, Steve, are longtime supporters of the Philharmonic. Rachelle is also a member of the Philharmonic’s Board of Trustees.
Vegas GIVES is challenging all eight honorees to exceed last year’s fundraising total of $101,000, which was a record amount. Those attending the event will enjoy lite bites, signature cocktails and also have the opportunity to purchase additional drawing tickets for many one-of-a-kind items.
In addition to outstanding symphony orchestra performances throughout the year, the Las Vegas Philharmonic also works to educate and enrich the lives of school-age children. The Philharmonic’s Annual Youth Concert Series offers fourth grade students the opportunity to attend a live symphonic performance in the concert hall. For more than 18 years, this free classical music experience has reached nearly 245,000 children, approximately 70 percent of whom attend a Title 1 or at-risk elementary school. Through grant funding, the organization has also worked directly with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada to provide music education and help many young children learn to play the violin.
Crupi, a native Las Vegan and accomplished banker with three decades of experience in Southern Nevada, joined Bank of Nevada in 2003 as a Regional President. She was promoted to President on January 1, 2017.
The Vegas GIVES event is planned for Thursday, November 2, 2017, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Silver Ridge, by William Lyon Homes in The Ridges.
Tickets in support of Rachelle Crupi range from $50 to $100 dollars. The $50 ticket includes entry to the event and two drawing tickets, while the $100 ticket includes entry and five drawing tickets.
