Nevada Blind Children’s Foundation (NBCF) is proud to host the 5th Annual Ladybug Ball fundraising gala, being held this year on Saturday, May 3 at Red Rock Resort Casino Spa. This elegant affair is so important to NBCF as it helps to raise funds that support the educational programs and services offered to blind children in Las Vegas.

With 500 attendees at this year’s gala, NBCF is in need of silent auction items from community supporters. To donate an item, simply call the foundation at 702-735-6223 or download the attached form  below and fax it to 702-878-3524.

As many of our readers know, my husband and I founded NBCF after the birth of son, Connor, who was born blind. Our first fundraiser was held in my living room, so you have to imagine how overwhelmed with joy I am to have our Ladybug Ball grow to over 500 attendees this year! If you would like to contact me directly about your silent auction donation, please feel free to do so, either via email at [email protected] or phone at 702-324-1777.



As a silent auction donor, your name and your gift will be viewed by 500 guests over a cocktail reception which will be followed by a live auction, entertainment, and a multi-course dinner prepared by local and national celebrity chefs.

Nevada is one of only four states that do not have a school for the blind. As a privately-funded entity, NBCF seeks to fill the gap in educational support by providing information and services that enable families, healthcare professionals and the community to understand and meet the unique needs of infants and children who are blind or visually impaired. These are services that cannot be found anywhere else in the state of Nevada.  Your contributions to the Ladybug Ball will directly enhance the lives of these children.
