Breakthru NV and Dignity Health Celebrate 70 Years for the Non-Profit

May 8, 2017


Breakthru Beverage Nevada was proud to sponsor Dignity Health’s 60th annual gala and 70th anniversary of the St. Rose Dominican Hospital system in Las Vegas last month. Nearly 700 guests attended the charity event at Caesars Palace, raising more than $700,000 for the non-profit organization.

St. Rose Dominican Hospitals make up the Nevada market under parent company Dignity Health, and are the only non-profit hospitals in the state of Nevada providing services not only to commercial patients, but also to adults and children within the community who are unable to afford healthcare. 

Breakthru NV and Dignity Health have a longstanding relationship, aligning directly with Breakthru’s mission to give back to its communities. Breakthru NV Vice President of Wine and Spirits Sales Rich Espe knows the relationship intimately, as he sits on the board for the non-profit.

“It’s not only meaningful to Breakthru to partner with such an altruistic organization, but it’s even more relevant as St. Rose is the largest hospital provider in Southern Nevada and hundreds of our associates use their facilities,” Espe said.

The Dignity Health Gala included a cocktail reception, silent auctions, dinner and live entertainment by Jewel and the Plain White T’s. Breakthru NV donated several auction items including tickets to the George Strait concert and a Woodford Reserve Barrel along with 120 etched bottles from Brown-Forman.  

Breakthru NV was also the sole provider of beverages for the evening, pouring a variety of wines from Foley Family Wines, beer from MillerCoors and Blue Moon, and specialty cocktails featuring Number Juan Tequila, Woodford Reserve and Tito’s Handmade Vodka.

Thank you to all of our supplier partners and associates who helped make this year’s gala such a success. We look forward to next year’s celebration!
