ANGEL AWARDS

ANGEL AWARDS

Vegas Inc’s Angel Awards, which coincide with the annual Giving Guide publication, recognize the remarkable people and businesses in Southern Nevada who make a difference in the charitable landscape of our community. On Thursday, September 17, 2020 Angel Award honorees were invited to attend a small pop-up celebration with Greenspun Media Group to celebrate the outstanding work they do. The honorees arrived at staggered times throughout the day in order to follow safety guidelines in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic. At the pop-up celebration, honorees received their awards, custom cupcakes provided by The Blooming Cupcake, and copies of the special issue of Vegas Inc’s Giving Guide, while participating in a fun photo shoot.
