Join Rising Phoenix Charitable Foundation and celebrate the JOY OF GIVING! This lively charity gala boasts a FIRE & ICE theme, with attendees enjoying a fully catered, 3-course dinner, amid lush decorations guaranteed to engage the senses!

Our Saturday Night Gala net proceeds benefit The Shade Tree Shelter.
This special night features Marlene Richter, Executive Director of The Shade Tree. Ms. Richter’s messages often leave one feeling rejuvenated and inspired to take on the world!
Since 1990, The Shade Tree has served homeless and abused women and children, victims of domestic violence, victims of elder abuse, victims of street violence, female veterans, homeless youth and the physically disabled. Using programs offered by The Shade Tree, women can rebuild their lives. They can find employment, secure permanent housing and become a productive member of the community.
The Shade Tree is the largest shelter of its kind in the state of Nevada, and is the only 24-hour accessible shelter designed specifically to meet the needs of women and children in Southern Nevada. With 364 permanent beds, The Shade Tree provides over 100,000 nights of shelter each year. On average, 33% of its clients are children under the age of 18. Senior citizens represent the fastest growing segment of its population.
The Shade Tree is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and is a local ‘grassroots’ agency with no national affiliation or support.
To remove any barrier that might prevent a woman from accessing necessary services for herself and her children, 100% of The Shade Tree’s services are provided completely free of charge, regardless of the length of stay.
This is a formal event, starting at 7:00 p.m. PDT. Guests will enjoy a fully catered, 3-course dinner, followed by entertainment, raffles and a live auction of unique items.
$150 per plate or $1,400 for a table of ten. Again, net proceeds to benefit The Shade Tree.
