Hello Harvard Club of Nevada Alumni and Friends!
We have enjoyed a terrific response to the October 3rd Downtown Project Tour & Evening with Tony Hsieh event, and we look forward to your joining us for this wonderful social, educational, and networking event.
Location/Parking: The event will be held the El Cortez Hotel at Fremont & 6th Streets [600 E. Fremont, LV 89101]. Please valet park at the El Cortez Hotel; additional valet parkers have been added to accommodate attendees. Valet parking is located at the main entrance on 6th Street. After parking, you will be directed to the Lobby of the Ogden building where the Downtown Project Tours will begin.
Arrival:Please arrive between 5:15-5:30pm if possible. The Downtown Project tours will begin promptly at 5:30pm. We expect to have three groups of attendees taking the tour that evening. Food and drinks will begin at 6:00pm.
Reception/Networking: The Tour(s) will end near Jackie Gaughan Plaza (located right across the street from the main entrance to the El Cortez Hotel), where we are creating a street festival atmosphere for the presentation and reception. There will be a DJ, gourmet food trucks, and a cash bar. Please bring a little cash or credit card to enjoy the food and beverages.
Food: One truck serves gourmet sausage sandwiches and hand-cut fresh fries. The second truck, a featured concession at the recent Vegas Uncorked Event and truck #1 on the red carpet at the Bellagio, serves a variety of southern comfort options. Most food offerings cost under $10 and will be served both following the tours and Tony Hsieh’s presentation. The El Cortez is also providing fruit and cheese platters for your enjoyment. Plenty of outdoor seating will be available. Please dress comfortably and casually for the event.
Presentation: Mr. Hsieh’s presentation will begin promptly at 7:00pm, again in an outdoor area.
Book signing: Tony has generously agreed to sign your copy of Delivering Happiness, with your contribution of $50+ to the Harvard Club of Nevada Scholarship Fund. Please make your check payable to: Harvard Club of Nevada and hand it in at the check-in table when you arrive. Remember to bring your book! A limited number of books will be available at the check-in table on Wednesday.
If your schedule does not permit you to take a Downtown tour during this event on Wednesday, you may contact Krissee Danger at email@example.com and she will arrange a private tour for you on another date. If you do contact Ms. Danger, please mention that you are part of the Harvard Club event.
In the event of excessive wind and/or rain [not expected], the presentation, food and fun will move into the Founders Room at the El Cortez Hotel. Weather will not affect the Downtown Project Tours.
We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday, October 3rd!
