“Viva Las Vegas – The Sky’s the Limit!” Welcome Reception

Las Vegas has a rich cultural history, and was first named by a Mexican trading party stopping there for water on the Old Spanish Trail. Later, the dazzling city we see today, grew like a sparkling mirage in a dry, flat desert inspired only by the dreams of those whose imaginations knew no limitation. This evening, we’ll take from this inspiration and open our minds to what we can dream and meet others whom we can build those dreams with.  Join us for great food, drinks, conversation starters where you’ll form color teams to create an energizing District “meet and greet” to make new friends and see what’s next for old ones. Dress casual for a fun, rousing event.
