Park Place Infiniti to serve as title sponsor of benefit

Park Place Infiniti recently announced that it will be the official title sponsor of The Adoption Exchange’s biggest annual fundraising event, A Monopolizing Evening, Monopoly to Benefit The Adoption Exchange, at 5 p.m. Nov. 8 at the Culinary Academy of Las Vegas, 710 W. Lake Mead Blvd., North Las Vegas.

Park Place Infiniti was the “Park Place” title sponsor at last year’s event, where the dealership also provided gift bags to all of the Monopoly game winners and a Community Chest raffle prize.

“As a native of Las Vegas, I know that The Adoption Exchange is succeeding in changing lives and building families in Southern Nevada,” said Joe Tortomasi, general manager of Park Place Infiniti. “Park Place Infiniti and its employees are committed to supporting organizations like The Adoption Exchange that are helping our children and making a difference in our community.”

A nonprofit organization, The Adoption Exchange believes every child deserves a family and serves as the connection between children who wait in foster care and families who adopt. The Monopoly event will help the charity find forever families for children waiting to be adopted, including more than 1,100 in Nevada.

This year’s event will honor local attorney and former Nevada state assemblywoman Barbara Buckley. She will receive The Adoption Exchange Nevada office’s 2013 Wednesday Child Legacy award to commemorate her efforts on behalf of foster children in Nevada.

The Adoption Exchange’s Monopoly event will include a silent auction, cocktail reception, dinner, recognitions and a one-hour Monopoly tournament, with all proceeds benefiting the local charity. For ticket information, call 702-436-6335 or visit www.adoptex.org.

Park Place Dealerships, based in Dallas, purchased the Infiniti dealership on West Sahara Avenue last year and has become an active member of the Las Vegas community.

Movie posters might soon be based on your clicks

You may have thought you left Blockbuster behind, but the basic way we browse movies hasn’t changed all that much.
