This Valentine’s, show some love for your community!

Valentine’s Day is all about love, and this year, why not share that love with your local community? United Way of the New River Valley will hold their seventh annual formal fundraiser, Valentine's in Vegas, on Saturday, February 10th, 2018 at the German Club Manor in Blacksburg from 6:00 P.M. to 10:30 P.M.

Guests at this romantic fundraiser are sure to enjoy live music by a local jazz band, dancing, an elegant dinner buffet, cash bars, and a Magic Mirror photo booth. The casino games offered will include old favorites like Black Jack, Texas Hold’em, Seven Card Stud, a Craps table, Slot Machines and Roulette!

We've received a number of fantastic prizes for this year’s raffle and silent auction. How about taking your family of four to Walt Disney World? Or for the adventurous, a day at Anakeesta in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Love the outdoors? Come win a new, 12 ft. stand-up paddle board, or bid on a 14.5ft kayak donated by Backcountry.com! If you plan on bidding on the larger items, please come prepared with a large vehicle or truck. We also have an Amazon Echo and Echo Dot, tickets to Floyd Fest, restaurant gift cards, health and fitness certificates, wine offerings, Carolina Panthers merchandise signed by Christian McCaffrey, and much more! There is truly something for everyone!

All proceeds from this event will benefit the local human and health building efforts of United Way and the 25 local charities they support. Limited tickets are available, so visit the United Way website, www.unitedwaynrv.org/valentine today to make your reservation. Tickets are $70 per person or $125 per couple.
