Hey, old sport: Get ready to go back in time. The Tyler Robinson Foundation, founded by Imagine Dragons, and the Vegas Golden Knights Foundation are partnering to host “A Knight With Gatsby” at Commonwealth on February 9. Travel back to the Roaring ’20s with Prohibition-style cocktails and all the Gatsby feels.
“The night is stacked,” says Mauricio Morales, marketing manager at Commonwealth. “Everything will be decked out like the ’20s. We will have performances from the Moonshiners band, people from the Golden Knights and a mystery guest to lead the toast.”
The two foundations are working together to raise money through raffles for Las Vegas families and children dealing with homelessness and cancer. Prizes include tickets to the Life Is Beautiful festival, Vegas Golden Knights games and the annual Tyler Robinson Foundation Rise Up Gala in September. The Rise Up Gala will feature a special acoustic performance by Imagine Dragons.
“The Tyler Robinson Foundation is really excited to be partnering with the Vegas Golden Knights Foundation,” says Kim Gradisher, executive director of TRF. “Our foundation is national but we are headquartered in Las Vegas, so it will be cool to get a Vegas music-centered foundation working with a sports-centered foundation.”
Founded in 2013 by the Robinson family—whose son Tyler was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer at 16 years old—and Imagine Dragons, The Tyler Robinson Foundation provides financial and emotional support for families battling the tragedy of pediatric cancer. The Golden Knights Foundation has five areas of focus to better the lives of Las Vegas locals, including the health and wellness of children.
“We just want people to come in, have a lot of fun and raise a lot of money for both foundations for local families,” adds Elizabeth Matthews, community engagement manager for the Golden Knights Foundation.
Tickets are $20 in advance and $30 at the door and include two cocktails and a champagne toast. Twenties garb is highly encouraged. Flapper dresses and flower headbands, skimmer hats and newsboy caps—dress like you are attending a party hosted by Gatsby himself. 7 p.m., $20–$30, 525 Fremont St., commonwealthlv.com
