The 13th Annual Keep Memory Alive's Power of Love Charity Gala features Siegfried & Roys final Performance
















We have spoken about stars in the past and those are normally Michelin Stars awarded to the world's best restaurants but in this case we are talking about stars and legends of entertainment.



The 13th Annual Keep Memory Alive Foundation charity gala to benefit the Cleveland Clinic's Lou Ruvo Center for Brain health was held at the Bellagio Resort and Casino. The Gala featured the legendary Siegfried and Roy as they returned to the stage for the last time to benefit the Foundation.


Stars such as Actress Teri Hatcher , Hilary Duff ,
and actor Steve Schirripa as well hair products Mogul John Paul Mitchell were all walking the red carpet for the event. Culinary Stars Wolfgang Puck , Jean-Philippe Maury , Todd English and Martin Heierling all represented the culinary world at it's best.







Even Vegas new comers the Ladies of PEEPSHOW were present to support Keep
Memory Alive and to watch Siegfried & Roy take their final bow.













In addition to featuring a world class dinner and seeing the final performance of Siegfried & Roy guests also participated in a live auction featuring items such a Lake Tahoe getaway with Robin
Williams , Andre Agassi , Stefanie Graf and Emeril Lagasse in addition to a 5 day trip to Monaco and an opportunity to test drive some of the worlds finest cars as well as many more fine items.


The Cleveland Clinic 's Lou Ruvo Brain Center was enlisted by Larry Ruvo, whose father suffered from Alzheimer's and died in 1994. Ruvo said it took 18 months and a California doctor to diagnose the disease after his father was misdiagnosed in Las Vegas. Since then, Ruvo has raised about $60 million for the facility, which will open July 1 in a striking building designed by famed architect Frank Gehry.














This event brought out the best of Print, Film, TV and the Culinary world to support this great cause and has been doing so for 13 years.













We have had the opportunity and honor to see Siegfried And Roy on a few occasions and they will be missed. To honor them we here at VINO LAS VEGAS say, Good Luck and God Speed and of course , SARMOTI !

Simply, SARMOTI is an acronym for "Siegfried And Roy, Masters Of The Impossible."
