HELP of Southern Nevada will host its 20th annual Tea, Trends & Tranquility event at Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas from 1:30 – 4 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 13. Guests are invited to enjoy traditional brewed teas and lunch while honoring prominent members of the community who have exemplified outstanding philanthropic involvement and support in Las Vegas.
This year, HELP of Southern Nevada will honor three individuals who have continuously made an impact in the Southern Nevada community: President and General Manager of Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino, Cami Christensen; Senior Business Analyst at Credit One Bank® and HELP of Southern Nevada Treasurer, Lisa Cooper-Tippett; and Director of Business Development at DISCOVERY Children’s Museum, Jennifer White.
Cami Christensen was introduced to HELP of Southern Nevada at the Tea, Trends & Tranquility event in 2012. Her involvement began with a school supply donation through the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino, which then turned into donations to HELP’s Turkey-Thon Thanksgiving assistance drive. After touring the construction site that now houses Shannon West Homeless Youth Center, she has been an unwavering supporter of the organization. Due to her active involvement, HELP has been named one of the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino’s charity partners, which has awarded grant funding to the organization for the last three years.
Lisa Cooper-Tippett has served on the board of HELP of Southern Nevada for the last eight years and recently joined the executive committee as treasurer in 2017. Cooper-Tippett is diligent in donating her time at HELP’s Shannon West Homeless Youth Center and has fiercely supported the organization during every fundraising event. Due to her active involvement, HELP has been awarded thousands of dollars in funding for its programs and services through her employer, Credit One Bank.
Jennifer White was introduced to HELP of Southern Nevada through its founders, Junior League of Las Vegas. She began volunteering at HELP’s annual “Done in a Day” event in which Junior League members package over 2,500 bags of food for clients during Thanksgiving. White became the co-chair on Shannon West Homeless Youth Center’s committee, proving her steadfast commitment to the youth during the center’s construction. She has spent the majority of her volunteer hours planning executive events, life skills classes, and working to improve the youth center.
