Public invited to give back to OV by attending Maibock Tapping Party
at Gordon Biersch Thursday, April 14 from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

LAS VEGAS, Nev. – On Thursday, April 14 from 5:30-7:30 p.m., the public is invited to attend the Maibock Tapping Party at Gordon Biersch located at 3987 Paradise Road, where 100% of silent auction and beer ticket sales will benefit Opportunity Village, Las Vegas’ Favorite Charity. Opportunity Village serves people within our community with significant intellectual disabilities.

Guests can be the first to taste Gordon Biersch’s Maibock, a seasonal unfiltered auburn lager brewed with pale roasted caramel malts for a warm golden hue, with a moderate level of bitterness to create a perfect balance. Loosely translated in German as “strong May beer”, Maibock is traditionally brewed in May to celebrate the coming of spring and warmer weather. Each guest will receive one complimentary beer along with a sampling of Gordon Biersch’s seasonal menu. Additional beer tickets may be purchased for $5, and can be saved and used for up to one month following the event. Happy hour items will be available until 6:30 p.m. featuring specials priced between $2.95 and $11.95. Open to anyone at least 21 years of age, the event will also include a silent auction with special items from Gordon Biersch as well as show tickets, restaurant gift certificates, retail merchandise and much more.

Formed in September of 2013, OV Nation is an auxiliary organization comprised of rising Las Vegas professionals who are committed to expanding Opportunity Village’s reach to future leaders within the community. OV Nation has planned over a dozen events, fundraisers and awareness campaigns for Opportunity Village and has independently raised thousands of dollars through fundraising efforts. OV Nation is currently engaging and activating new members and supporters – business professionals who would like to be involved and at the same time balance work, life, family and social engagements.

The mission of OV Nation is to identify, develop and engage a new generation of Opportunity Village brand ambassadors, donors, board members, volunteers and supporters. OV Nation has its own Board of Directors who spearhead the committee’s initiatives including special events, fundraising, networking, teambuilding, volunteering and supporting Opportunity Village’s ongoing programs and goals.
