The Junior League of Las Vegas (JLLV) will host its 21st Annual Paint The Town Red event on Saturday, April 13, 2024 at 6 pm at Encore Las Vegas. This event is JLLV’s largest annual fundraiser honoring individuals who have made outstanding contributions to volunteerism and developing the potential of women in our local community. This year’s theme is a “Casino Royale.”
ABOUT OUR HONOREES
We have two amazing honorees this year. We are honoring Sandra Douglass Morgan with our Florence Lee Jones Humanitarian Award, and Wendy Kalb will receive our Lifetime Community Achievement Award.
The Florence Lee Jones Humanitarian Award was established to recognize Southern Nevadans who have made significant, enduring contributions to humanity in keeping with the ideals of JLLV. These contributions include promoting the welfare of humankind, with an emphasis on education and other services benefiting Southern Nevada’s women and children. We are excited to present Sandra Douglass Morgan with the award this year! Sandra’s work in increasing opportunities for Nevada businesses, education, and local organizations and her focus on serving the Las Vegas community through the Raiders Foundation aligns with the mission of JLLV.
The Lifetime Achievement Award honors a sustaining member of JLLV for her dedication to volunteerism and commitment to making a difference in our community. We are excited to present the award to Wendy Kalb this year! Wendy’s public service ethic exemplifies the purpose and mission of JLLV, including our mission of developing the potential of women and improving communities through the leadership of trained volunteers. Wendy has been a pivotal member of JLLV for forty years. Since joining in 1984, she has chaired and served on a number of committees. Notably, Wendy was one of the first leaders of the Christmas Project, later called the Adopt a Bear Project. She has made it a family affair, involving her children and grandchildren in shopping for and packing gifts for children sponsored by Adopt a Bear. In 1999 and 2002, she was named JLLV Sustainer of the Year.
The Junior League of Las Vegas is a 501c(3) Nevada non-profit organization whose mission is to advance women’s leadership for meaningful community change through volunteer action, collaboration, and training. Contributions may be tax-deductible.
