Las Vegas (February 14th, 2020) –  The 11th annual Vintage & Vines, slated for April 22nd from 5:30-8:00PM at Red Rock Country Club, will feature a roaring 20’s theme bash & fundraiser with an added NFL tailgate twist! This event will raise much needed funds to sustain and scale up our programs and services aimed at helping children and their families, across Southern Nevada, cope with loss.

Among some of our amazing event partners this year are Jaguar Land Rover Las Vegas, Sierra Air Conditioning & Heating , Mark and Anne Wayman, and Windermere Prestige Properties. Guests attending Vintage & Vines will enjoy an amazing night of live dancing to the music of Naomi Mauro Band, while sipping fine wine and craft beers. They will also get to enjoy delicious cuisine and exciting entertainment, including a football theme tailgate party on the patio to coincide with the NFL draft happening that week on the Las Vegas Strip!  The evening will include a 1920’s attire costume contest and guests will get a chance to bid on fabulous items and experiences during our silent and live auctions. Our mistress of the ceremonies will be local media personality & Emmy Award winning broadcaster, Patranya Bhoolsuwan.

“Vintage and Vines is our only annual fundraiser in its 11th year. With the help of local businesses we will have new experiences this year to add to our food, wine and beer tastes fun!” said Adam’s Place founder, Kelly Thomas-Boyers  “They include contests for best costumes (male/female/couple!), psychic, fortune teller, patio tailgate etc. Our event will be memorable and something you won’t want to miss!”

Adams Place relies on community support to fund ongoing programs and new projects like “MUSIC U”, a collaboration with local musical mentors to give children a chance to expand their coping skills in a healthy way.  Our other services include Junior Camp Cope, Adult Parenting Skills Programs, In-School Camp Cope Programs, Quarterly Healthy Coping Workshops, Quarterly Family Connections Events, Spring Well Corporate Employee training and On-Site Support Group Facilitation, along with Motivational Guest Speaker Engagements.

Adam’s Place has been providing services in Southern Nevada for 11 years. We appreciate all the local support that makes our program and growth possible.

Adam’s Place Camp Cope

Adam's Place Camp Cope Program

Our 8-week Program, Camp Cope, is offered two times a year: Fall Camp and Winter Camp. The bonds created with peers, coping skills acquired, and confidence gained, help our children to increase school attendance, school performance, gain a sense of security, build confidence, and most importantly restore hope.

Take a peak at some of the highlights from our latest session "Building Your Toolbox".

Children dealing with loss are vastly overlooked in society at large and in schools in particular. Our Camp Cope Programs have the largest group of children to date and we are at maximum capacity. Our services are in high demand and in order to continue providing support for children and families experiencing loss, we need help from our community.

Our 2020 goal is to not only expand our Adam's Place Training Facility but to partner with our community schools to bring Camp Cope into their facilities. We have successfully lead Camp Cope at LIED Stem Academy and are currently running the program at Rancho High School.
These losses are powerful and often overwhelming, leaving children with intense feelings of pain, anger, fear, and guilt. Left unresolved, these emotions can inhibit a child's natural growth and can push them down a path of bad choices.

Studies show that grieving children can have:

• Increased depression and anxiety throughout childhood and adulthood
• Decreased academic performance
• Increased probability of delinquency
• Increased probability of drug use
• Increased probability of early sexual activity and teen pregnancy
• Increased probability of gang involvement

With the help of our community, we would be able to grow the capacity of our current programs, expand our outreach, and advance research beyond our landmark studies currently underway. In short, we help kids heal, creating a stronger community.
