Culinary Community and Restaurant Enthusiasts Help Raise More Than $200,000 During Las Vegas Restaurant Week
Three Square Food Bank
announced today the results of the 2017 installment of Las Vegas Restaurant Week. One hundred and sixty-one restaurants participated in the culinary event raising a record-breaking total of more than $200,000 to benefit Southern Nevada’s only food bank. 

The proceeds from the campaign will help Three Square provide more than 600,000 meals to 296,000 food-insecure individuals in Southern Nevada. Since its inception in 2007, Restaurant Week has raised more than $1.4 million for the local nonprofit organization.

From June 19-30, restaurants across the valley offered prix-fixe menus at price points ranging from $20 to $80 with a fixed portion of proceeds benefitting Three Square and the fight against hunger in Southern Nevada.

Longtime champions of hunger including Spago, Table 34, STK, Estiatorio Milos, Gilley’s Bar-B-Que, Olives and Honey Salt were joined by new culinary hotspots including Libertine Social, Chica, SUGARCANE, The Black Sheep and Beauty & Essex. Mon Ami Gabi, Charlie Palmer, Mesa Grill and Buddy V’s were the top earners this year.

Las Vegas Restaurant Week began in 2007 as a way to give locals and tourists the opportunity to help out by dining out. This year marked the 11th year of Restaurant Week, which featured a variety of fine dining experiences throughout the valley. Proceeds from Restaurant Week benefit Three Square, Southern Nevada’s only food bank. For additional information visit threesquare.org or helpoutdineoutlv.org.
