Las Vegas weddings are going pink! This August, the Springs Preserve brings brides the opportunity to strut their stuff in support of the American Cancer Society. In an evening benefit entitled “Crash a Wedding for Breast Cancer Research,” local Las Vegans are invited to show up unannounced and wearing their best pink and green attire to show their support of breast cancer survivor, Linda Benitez, as she marries her groom, Richard Gilbert.

Celebrate with Linda and Richard this August!

At this event, attendees can expect to view Linda and Richard’s wedding ceremony, beginning with Linda’s entrance by horse-drawn carriage and sealing it all with a kiss. After the wedding, prepare for a silent auction and a reception of raffles, music, comedy entertainment and magic performances by Kevin Goins, wedding cupcakes, and even professional dance competitions.

Feel free to actively participate or simply soak in the celebratory atmosphere of the evening. As guests of the event, you are welcome to be involved in making memories for the happy couple while also fundraising for an excellent cause. Sign up for free to dance with a partner in the competitive Dancing for Dollars fundraiser. Commit to bring cash to cast your vote for the dancing queen and king. Purchase V.I.P. tickets to the entire evening event. Simply show your support by your attendance. This event provides options for every attendee, no matter your level of involvement.

Also, in partnership with Eco-Bridal Fair, this event will bring together local vendors with an eco-friendly focus. Throughout the evening, attendees will have the opportunity to speak with vendors and learn more about their professional services. Whether an attendee wants to learn more about wedding-worthy wigs for bride battling breast cancer or she hopes to locate an area to host a green wedding, this event is the perfect opportunity to witness an eco-friendly wedding while making plans for your own special day.

  1. I want to thank everyone of the Wedding professionals and especially Michelle Lettieri event planner for Wolfgang Puck Catering at the Springs Preserve. My wedding and charitable event were more that I could have ever dreamed it would be. My head is still spinning from every little part that everyone played at the Crash a Wedding for Breast Cancer event. I still can’t fit my head around it all. I am completely blown away. You are the most creative amazing spectacular group of wedding professionals that anyone could have. YOU ARE ALL THE WEDDING DREAM TEAM! I LOVE YOU ALL AND THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK AND TIME OVER THE PAST YEAR OF PLANNING. Also a BIG thank you from all the women who will benefit from the funds that were raised by this event.

    I have to thank all of the donors who donated things to the silent auction, the diamond earring raffle, the dance off and so much more…

    Thank You from the bottom of our hearts, it means so much more than words can say.

    Linda and Richard Gilbert
