Proceeds from the night benefited The Shade Tree, a local organization that provides safe refuge to physically abused and homeless women, children and their pets. Friends of the Shade Tree is a local, Las Vegas, organization founded to financially support The Shade Tree Shelter. Over the past 11 years, Friends of the Shade Tree has raised more than $2,500,000 to help provide life changing services to the women and children of The Shade Tree, promoting stability, dignity and self-reliance

For 25 years The Shade Tree, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, has been dedicated to improving the lives of women, children and their pets affected by domestic violence and crisis in the Las Vegas valley. As the only organization with an animal shelter on campus, named Noah’s Animal House, The Shade Tree brings families together with their pets and connects them with assistance and services.

The Shade Tree is the largest shelter of its kind in 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 6,000 women and children safe shelter each year. To remove any barrier that might prevent a woman from accessing necessary services for her and her children, 100% of services are provided completely free of charge, regardless of the length of stay.
