On Saturday, Feb. 10, the Neon Museum hosted its second-annual Boneyard Ball at Enclave Las Vegas. Rossi Ralenkotter, president and CEO, Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA), accepted the museum’s Glow Award on behalf of his organization (Pictured: Rossi Ralenkotter, president and CEO, LVCVA; Rob McCoy, president and CEO, Neon Museum; Dulcinea Rongavilla, chair of the board of trustees).
A portion of the proceeds from this year’s event were earmarked for the Hard Rock Café guitar sign restoration campaign. Monies raised will go toward transporting the sign from the Young Electric Sign Company (YESCO), installing it in the world-famous Neon Boneyard and providing an endowment for its ongoing maintenance and conservation efforts. The museum’s goal is to raise $350,000. More than $60,300 was raised by the ball’s 300 attendees and more than $134,000 has been raised during the entire campaign to date.
Founded in 1996, the Neon Museum is a non-profit organization dedicated to collecting, preserving, studying and exhibiting iconic Las Vegas signs for educational, historic, arts and cultural enrichment. Both the Neon Boneyard and the La Concha Visitors’ Center are located at 770 Las Vegas Blvd. North in Las Vegas. For tour schedules and pricing information, visit neonmuseum.org.
