Ferraro’s Italian Restaurant and Wine Bar is sponsoring “InVision presents… Art n’ Sole,” an artistic silent auction to benefit Goodie Two Shoes Foundation in Las Vegas on May 8.
Known as a premier Las Vegas staple in dining, Ferraro’s has been a part of the Las Vegas community for more than 25 years. Having opened the new location on Paradise Road in December of 2009, Ferraro’s continues to give back to the community with charity fundraising events such as Art n’ Sole, an event that brings local artists together with Goodie Two Shoes Foundation to raise awareness and funds for disadvantaged children. InVision, a local coaching firm has teamed together with Las Vegas artists who have painted pairs of shoes to be auctioned off for charity on May 8.
“The Ferraro Family wants to continue to show appreciation to the local community. Sponsoring events such as Art n’ Sole gives the family and the restaurant the opportunity to not only promote talented local artists, but to help raise funds to assist local children that need it the most,” stated Gino Ferraro, founder of Ferraro’s.
“Our goal is to support and bring our arts and cultural community together,” added RaShelle Roberts, owner and founder of InVision. “We showcase local artists and companies willing to donate their time, effort and energy while raising awareness and resources for children in need. This event is another great example of doing just that.”
