LAS VEGAS (KXNT) - It may sound like fun, but it's actually a fundraiser to help a very sensitive subject.

“A Night Out” benefiting The Rape Crisis Center. The public is invited to participate in a fun night out Thursday, Dec. 6 at The Opium Room inside TAO Nightclub at The Venetian. Long-standing community partners of The Rape Crisis Center, Tao Group, generously host the annual event, now in its sixth year. Admission is only $65 in advance or at the door and includes hors-d'oeuvres, wine, signature cocktail, and entertainment. Zappos for Good and Lockton are sponsoring this year’s event.

The Rape Crisis Center is calling on the community to show its support, buy a ticket and kick off the season of giving to help the organization and the thousands of survivors of sexual assault and abuse who are assisted with crisis support and counseling each year. Tickets are available at rcclv.org or at the door.

In 2017, The Rape Crisis Center met and assisted 746 victims of sexual assault at the hospital, handled more than 17,680 website visits and hotline calls, delivered 2127 counseling hours to clients and educated over 12,739 Clark County school children on how to prevent assault, what to look for and how to stay safe.  More people than ever are reaching out to The Rape Crisis Center in the wake of the #MeToo movement, and support is needed to keep up with this increased demand.

The event will be Thursday, December 6, 2018, from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m., at the Opium Room, which is inside TAO Nightclub on the strip.            

You have to purchase tickets to attend, but organizers want to remind people, this is for a good cause. Ticket prices are $65, and that includes drinks, appetizers, and entertainment. Tickets may be purchased at rcclv.org. Guests must be 21 years of age and older to attend.
