Valentino and The Cleveland Clinic team up to Wine and Dine


In honor of its 10th anniversary inside the Venetian Resort, Hotel & Casino, Valentino Las Vegas has announced “Wine & Dine For The Cause.” Now through the end of September, a portion of the proceeds from Valentino’s daily specials, tasting menus and select wines will benefit “Keep Memory Alive” and the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health for Alzheimer’s research.

“We have been friends with Larry Ruvo (Chairman, Keep Memory Alive) since we opened our doors in Las Vegas back in 1999 and have done several special events and wine dinners together,” said Valentino Las Vegas Executive Chef and Partner, Luciano Pellegrini. “When we started thinking about our 10-year anniversary and how to celebrate it, we wanted to do more than just a one-night dinner, with the hopes that more money can be raised for Keep Memory Alive.”

Guests have the option of ordering one of the daily specials, select wines or a signature Valentino tasting menu created by Chef Pellegrini. This is a great way to experience some of Las Vegas’ finest cuisine while raising money for a worthy cause.
