The Forte Awards 2017

Year 2 of the Forte Awards was an amazing night showcasing the performing artists of Reno/ Tahoe. It was held in the Grand Theater of the Grand Sierra Resort Thursday Nov 2nd. All proceeds went to the benefit of The Veteran’s Resource Center, Food Bank of Northern Nevada, and the Nevada Humane Society. Tix were just $10 and $20. Everyone was invited and it was a very entertaining night. Magicians, Comedians, Dancers, Theater and Musicians gave the night a real “Hello Hollywood” kinda feel. Everyone had a great time!
