“It’s hard to overstate the impact Wynn Resorts has had on Opportunity Village and the Southern Nevada community,” said Adam K. Joseph, Vice President of Philanthropy at Opportunity Village. “During these challenging times, it takes a special kind of partner to continue to invest in the OV mission and be so willing to dive headfirst into making a difference. Camelot was – and always has been – about honoring and recognizing team members, leadership and dedication to the community we all call home. Our sincere heartfelt thanks go out to Wynn Resorts and everyone who supported this year’s virtual gala.”
Funds from the night were raised in a variety of ways, including: virtual “seat” and “table” purchases, Silent and Live Auction bidding and one-off donations.
In recent years, Opportunity Village has honored the Fletcher Jones Family (2019), Boyd Gaming Corporation (2018) and Governor Steve Sisolak (2017) at Camelot. For more information, please visit our events page.
About Opportunity Village
Mission: Opportunity Village is a not-for-profit organization that serves people within our community with significant intellectual disabilities, to enhance their lives and the lives of their families.
Seven families who were determined to give their children with disabilities the best lives possible founded Opportunity Village in 1954. Now, more than six decades later, Opportunity Village is one of the most recognized and respected organizations of its type in the United States.
Nevada’s largest employer of people with disabilities, Opportunity Village serves nearly 2,000 individuals annually, providing vocational training, employment, habilitation and social recreation programs and services that make their lives more purposeful and interesting.
Opportunity Village clients – individuals who were previously considered unemployable – work at Opportunity Village’s Employment Resource Centers and in jobs throughout the community, collectively earning wages amounting to more than $3.6 million in 2018. They are hardworking and diligent, proudly paying taxes and happily leading more fulfilling lives.
