Heritage Pointe, well-known for its unparalleled residential community providing Independent, Assisted Living, and Memory Care services for Seniors, has announced exciting plans for its not-to-be-missed 29th Annual Luncheon and Shopping Boutique.
Scheduled for Wednesday, May 15, 2019, this highly – anticipated event, for both men and women within our community, is being Co-chaired by Heritage Pointe supporters and sisters, Elana Samson and Rochelle Volpert.
“Guests will certainly enjoy this year’s headliner, comedienne Rita Rudner, lauded for holding the record as the longest running solo comedy show in Las Vegas and for her multiple consecutive ‘Comedian of the Year” wins,” stated Beth Slavin, Director of Philanthropy at Heritage Pointe.
The exclusive Shopping Boutique will commence at 9:30 a.m., followed by the Luncheon at 11:45 a.m. Tickets are priced at $ 118 per person, with Patron Levels at $ 236, $ 360, $ 500, and $1,000. Tables of ten can also be purchased for $1,800.
“It is a tremendous honor and opportunity to be a part of Heritage Pointe’s legacy of this highly successful Annual Spring Luncheon,” stated Event Co-chair Elana Samson. Samson’s fellow Co-chair Rochelle Volpert concurred, adding, “We feel like this year is a chance to springboard the event to a new level. Past events have set a high standard, and we are confident this year the community is going to provide even more engagement and support,” she continued.
Once again, the exclusive Shopping Boutique will boast over 25 vendors showcasing wares ranging from clothing to handbags, jewelry to “kitschy” gift ideas, and much more. And, just as in years past, a percentage of all boutique sales are earmarked for donation to the Heritage Fund, previously named the Resident Assistance Fund. The Heritage Fund is set aside solely for the purpose of assisting seniors in financial need for residence expenses at Heritage Pointe, where they are surrounded by community, comfort, and caring attention.
Mike Silverman, CEO of Heritage Pointe, explains the importance of this Annual Spring Luncheon by saying, “The high profile involvement of someone of the caliber of Rita Rudner serves to generate even more interest in Heritage Pointe, and even greater community support for our work.” In addition to the monies generated through boutique sales, Silverman goes on to mention the effect of multiple fundraising efforts. “Heritage Pointe is just now commencing the work on the Allan and Sandy Fainbarg Family Pavilion, which includes a beautiful Great Room and surrounding gardens. Coinciding with this construction project is a new Rabbi’s office and renovation of the Café, Gift Shop, and three new elevators,” Silverman continued.
In addition to being recognized as one of hottest tickets in a town full of outstanding headline acts, Rita Rudner has been named the Nevada Ballet’s “Woman of the Year,” has been nominated for her first solo HBO special, Rita Rudner’s One Night Stand, has sold out Carnegie Hall in New York three times, and the Universal Amphitheatre in Los Angeles twice. She has written five books, has produced multiple films and stage plays, has performed for a Presidential fundraiser, and has been a regular guest on both Late Night with David Letterman and The Tonight Show.
“Heritage Pointe is incredibly fortunate to be able to partner with Rita Rudner for this year’s Luncheon,” stated Pamela Davis, Director of Special Events for Heritage Pointe. She explains, “While we know we are famous in our own little portion of the world, we also know we can be doing more to expand our visibility. Having Rita Rudner participate in this annual Luncheon event will help us develop that visibility even stronger. She is truly an icon in the entertainment world,” she continued.
