On May 30, surrounded by the beauty of The Pools at The Palazzo, Simon G. Jewelry and The Palazzo Las Vegas will present ‘SPRING BLING’ a star-studded musical evening and fashion show benefitting the Lili Claire Foundation. Fashion designer David Alexander will style the event with a presentation of his summer collection followed by special performances by Grammy-nominated artists, Sara Bareilles and Colby O’Donis. The invitation only event will welcome hosts Kris Jenner and Khloe Kardashian along with special guests Shari Belefonte, Vanessa Minnillo, DJ Chuck and American Idol alum, Chikezie and many more.
The Lili Claire Foundation has been operating their Las Vegas Family Resource Center in partnership with UNSOM for the past four years. The foundation created Nevada’s first multi-team approach for Autism, as well as the first complex condition multi-disciplinary clinic. The foundation also hosts behavioral and Autism clinics, provides a training ground for pediatric residents, and a home for the Clark County School District’s genetics clinic. Additionally, the foundation provides monthly Fetal Alcohol Syndrome clinics and social services ranging from sibling workshops, parent support groups, advocacy in schools, and resource libraries. All of the Lili Claire Foundation’s programs and services in Nevada are provided free of charge to the community.
David Alexander’s newest collection, “The Furious Phantoms,” is classic 1920s with a twist, and will incorporate David’s signature aesthetic of custom cut Swarovski crystal encrusted pieces. This collection, sponsored by Ka Wang Holdings and Domiziano Arcangeli, is inspired by the cohesion of structure and drape, together in one anthology collection and expressed through a theatrical storytelling of the ghosts of glamour’s past, reemerging for one last evening of spring fun. The ethereal partygoers dance and play furiously, until the structured Keeper of the Phantoms eventually captures them.
American Idol star, Chikezie, will honor the Lili Claire Foundation with a one-of-a-kind performance with a Lili Claire child. Grammy-nominated artist Colby O’Donis will take the stage performing hit songs “What You Got” and “Don’t Turn Back.” Sara Bareilles rounds out the musical evening with a special performance of hit songs “Love Song” and “Bottle It Up.”
Dos Caminos will serve delicious tastes of modern Mexican cuisine including Alaskan King Crab Sope, Ancho Seared Tuna Tostadita, Smoked Duck Tortas, Squash Blossom Relleno, Ceviche and Filet Mignon Alambre, along with the restaurant’s famed guacamole and a signature ‘SPRING BLING’ margarita. Additionally, the official after-party hosted by Khloe Kardashian will be in the lounge at Dos Caminos at The Palazzo. The after-party will be open to the public with a nominal cover charge with all proceeds benefitting the Lili Claire Foundation.
A raffle will be held at the event for many one-of-a-kind items including several jewelry pieces designed exclusively for Simon G. by David Alexander, a Palazzo vacation including two nights in a luxury suite, dinner for two at Dos Caminos and two tickets to Jersey Boys, and an extraordinary week in Tahiti donated by Legends Resort and Air Tahiti Nui. All proceeds from the raffle will benefit the Lili Claire Foundation.
