MISSION STATEMENT
“The Governor’s Black-Tie Invitational annual golf and social event,
supported and endorsed by the Governor of Nevada, is dedicated to
raising millions of dollars for other non-profit organizations supporting
children, teens and women in need throughout the Las Vegas community.”
Difference
The Southern Highlands Charitable Foundation established the annual
Governor’s Black-Tie Invitational as a special golf and social event that contributes
millions of dollars within the Las Vegas Community.
Started in 2003, the prestigious Governor’s Philanthropist of the Year Award is given
out at the event to promote and recognize local philanthropy. This award is presented
annually to local philanthropists for their exceptional generosity to the community and
the state of Nevada.

Selected Charities
The new Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada is a merger of the Boys & Girls Clubs
of Henderson and Boys & Girls Clubs of Las Vegas. The new nonprofit organization operates 14
facilities and three summer outreach programs in Southern Nevada, and serves more than 30,000
youth in Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Henderson, Southern Highlands and Summerlin. Boys & Girls
Clubs of Southern Nevada provides every child with the essential tools needed for a successful and
bright future through a variety of daily creative, fun, and educational programs. Annual membership
is as little as $10 per child. We would like to thank the Southern Nevada community for the amazing
support and allowing us to effect the lives of over 30,000 youth a year.
Children’s Heart Foundation is committed to making a difference in the lives of children with
heart conditions. We are BIG hearts helping LITTLE hearts! It’s important for all children to laugh
and play, especially those born with lifelong medical conditions. We at Children’s Heart Foundation
are committed to the well-being of our Nevada children. Heart problems in children are surprisingly
common. They are, in fact, the most common type of birth defect and the number one cause of
death during the first year of life. In Nevada alone, more than 350 children are born each year
with significant heart disease requiring either intensive medications or surgery. An additional 150 to
250 of Nevada’s children and newborns may develop a heart problem due to infections, Kawasaki
disease or Rheumatic fever. Hundreds more will exhibit problems with heartbeat irregularities
requiring medications or specialized procedures. We are here for them as a hand in need; to walk
with them along their journey. Whether they attend Camp Mend-a-Heart, receive a Smart Heart
Scholarship, a backpack from our Backpack Program, or financial assistance – we believe that if
their scars and worries vanish, even for just a few days, we are doing our job. Thank you, Southern
Highlands Charitable Foundation, for your very BIG heart!
With over 40 programs and services, one of our largest is Camp Cartwheel, which welcomes
over 200 critically ill children diagnosed with cancer, HIV/AIDS, sickle cell, hemophilia, renal and
immunologic diseases. This is our oldest program and remains the largest medically supervised
camp in the western United States for critically ill children and their siblings. Camp Cartwheel is a
supportive community made up of volunteers, medical professional and survivors who influence the
lives of young, childhood cancer patients and those with life-threatening illnesses. Campers, ages
5 to 17, become an intimate group of caring friends who understand each other’s needs, hopes,
and fears. Similar circumstances help these special children to be courageous during their daily
fight against and know that there is hope for the future. Thank you for supporting the Nevada
Childhood Cancer Foundation in celebrating our 18th anniversary of the magic of Camp
Cartwheel.
Assistance League® Las Vegas is extremely grateful to the committee and sponsors of the
Governor’s Black-Tie Invitational for your generous help with Operation School Bell®. At a cost
of about $75 per child, Southern Highland’s contributions this past year made it possible for
665 children to have badly needed, appropriate school clothing. For these children, having
school clothing encourages attendance, high self-esteem, and success with their education.
Each child receives new fashionable clothing including 2 pairs of pants, 3 shirts, a hooded
sweatshirt, underwear, shoes, socks, school supplies, and personal grooming products. Last
year, an astounding 8,314 children received school clothing from Operation School Bell. We
hope to serve at least as many children again this year. This would not be possible without the
support from caring organizations such as yours.
Selected Charities
The Governor’s Black-Tie Invitational and its support of Opportunity Village enables people with
intellectual disabilities to receive vocational training, find community-based jobs, discover creative
talents and develop long-lasting friendships. In short, the Invitational continues to help those with
disabilities live better lives. This partnership served as the foundation for the Chris Smith Social
Recreation program benefitting thousands of people and played a starring role in the development of
the Fine and Performing Arts division of Opportunity Village that includes theater, music, dance and
fine art programs for children and adults. Today, more than 1,700 individuals and their families are
served every day at Opportunity Village. Its programs and services are considered to be models for
other communities to follow both nationally and internationally. Proceeds from the 2014 Governor’s
Black Tie Invitational will be directed to Opportunity Village’s fundraising campaign to build “The
Village”, a unique neighborhood-style living environment for people with disabilities.
Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada is the first and oldest non-profit
organization in Nevada serving families coping with childhood cancer. Candlelighters’ mission
is to provide support, education, hope and advocacy through programs and services for children
and adolescents with cancer, their families and the professionals who care for them. We assist
families, who are affected by childhood cancer, who request help with financial assistance, patient
advocacy, and programs addressing the families’ mental and emotional health needs. We are proud
to have helped thousands of families since our founding nearly 35 years ago. We are eternally
grateful to the Southern Highlands Charitable Foundation, for their support and commitment to
our organization. On behalf of the Candlelighters Board of Directors, the staff, and especially our
families, we would like to thank everyone involved with the Governor’s Black-Tie for your continued
support and for believing in our organization.
One day at the new DISCOVERY Children’s Museum can stay with a child for a lifetime, sparking
curiosity and inspiring exploration in Nevada’s premier informal education resource. DISCOVERY
Children’s Museum at the Donald W. Reynolds Discovery Center located in Downtown Las Vegas is
a world-class destination. Three stories tall and 58,000 square feet, the all-new museum features
nine galleries of state-of-the-art interactive exhibits rivaling the top children’s museums in the nation.
Thank you Southern Highlands Charitable Foundation for believing in our mission of igniting the
love of lifelong learning.
Witnessing first hand the lack of consumer education that contributed to our economic crisis in
Southern Nevada, Andson was incorporated with a compelling goal. We want to remedy the
disparity amongst our youth with regards to both personal finance and education. Our goal is to
spark social mobility and behavioral changes within this generation, thereby equipping them for a
brighter future. The core programs of Andson include Financial Literacy, Academic Programming and
Mentoring. Through partnerships with several Valley Elementary and High Schools, and numerous
organizations such as the Boys and Girls Clubs; St. Judes Ranch for Children; Nevada State
College; Communities in Schools and HopeLink, we tutor and mentor hundreds of students through
Andson Academics each day in Southern Nevada. Additionally, our financial literacy curriculum,
Andson Money, will reach nearly 4,000 youth during the 2013-2014 school year. After school
academic support is provided at 11 locations Monday thru Thursday while financial literacy workshops
are conducted both during and after-school. Our thanks to the Southern Highlands Charitable
Foundation for recognizing our works, and supporting us as one of their charitable causes.
