Young men from Las Vegas high schools will be dressed to impress for their high school graduations, courtesy of Project Gentlemen Las Vegas and Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino.
The charitable arm of I Am a Gentleman, Inc. (IAAG), a national organization that mentors and empowers male teens through various programs and activities, Project Gentlemen Las Vegas will present up to 100 graduating male seniors who have pre-registered and, in many cases, will be the first graduating members of their families, with graduating attire, including suits, sport coats, dress shirts, neck ties, and other accessories, and the tools to become marketable and successful.
Project Gentlemen Las Vegas will be held Saturday, May 12, 2018 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. inside the Ballroom at Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino.
“We’re excited to be able to expand Project Gentlemen to the young men in Las Vegas and appreciate the tremendous support we’ve received,” said Robin Pero Price, Board Member of IAAG. “Working with Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino, local businessmen and companies, along with supporters from across the country, we are able to provide graduation attire — suits, sport coats, dress shirts, neck ties, and other accessories to more than 80 young men to fulfill this effort. We believe the Project Gentlemen experience will provide young men with the tools they need to make them marketable and successful in today’s competitive society.”
Project Gentlemen Las Vegas, in partnership with Communities in Schools of Southern Nevada, Equipo Academy and Democracy Prep, will present the graduating male seniors with a day full of interactive activities, including discussions with Commissioner Lawrence Weekly, Dario Herrera, Co-Founder, Acento Digital Media, Geno Iafrate, President & General Manager of Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino and others. Students will participate in seminars discussing image and grooming, etiquette and how to be a gentleman. The day will culminate with a fun-filled shopping experience at the “Gentlemen Boutique,” where, with the assistance of professional stylists, each student will select at least one complete outfit. Attendees will also receive vouchers for complimentary haircuts sponsored by Masterpiece Barber School and All Starz Barber Shop.
