While Las Vegas is known for its entertainment and at times for other seedy activity, the BIBO Awards understand that there is also a lot of positive activity, especially by women, who deserve to be recognized. Thus, the groundbreaking awards ceremony that combines glamour with good works, made its Las Vegas debut on November 15, 2014. The event was held at Dal Toro Ristorante in the Palazzo Casino to an excited and very engaged audience. The Master of Ceremonies was loved local councilman, Ricki Barlow and the lovely co-host of the evening was Fox News’ Tiffany Murphy.
