Simon G. Jewelry Hosts A Star-Studded "Summer Soiree" at Azure Luxury Pool at The Palazzo Las Vegas

Simon G. Jewelry Teams Up With Fashion Designer Marc Bouwer to Launch Its Latest Jewelry Collection to Raise Awareness for Generosity Water With a Performance by Gavin Rossdale

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - May 20, 2011) - The Palazzo Las Vegas proudly hosts Simon G. Jewelry's annual "Summer Soiree" at Azure Luxury Pool on June 4 to benefit charity partner, Generosity Water.

The poolside event, hosted by style expert and co-host of E!'s "Fashion Police," George Kotsiopoulos, will feature an evening of entertainment, fashion and celebrity guests amidst the Azure waters. Multi-platinum recording artist and Bush front man Gavin Rossdale will grace the unique in-pool stage with an intimate acoustic performance.

The soiree will mark the launch of Simon G's men's wedding band collection and new jewelry line in collaboration with iconic fashion designer Marc Bouwer. Famous for his glamorously modern designs, Bouwer's line intricately fuses iconic objects, such as stars, planets and hearts into the unique, abstract jewelry pieces Simon G. Jewelry is known for. The edgy textured rings, cuffs, pendants and earrings are designed from various shades of gold, diamonds and other precious stones.

"I'm thrilled to be working with Simon G to design this collection," said Bouwer. "I'm honored to have been asked to collaborate on this line by such a well-known, successful and respected jewelry designer brand and where better to launch it than The Palazzo Las Vegas."

Guests will get a first-ever look at the new line with an in-pool runway show featuring Bouwer's signature "athletic glamour" look and the new Marc Bouwer for Simon G. Jewelry collection.

"We look forward to this one evening every year," said Simon Ghanimian. "Not only is this a celebratory time for us to launch our new Marc Bouwer for Simon G. Jewelry collection at this beautiful resort, it's an evening of sincere generosity and we are proud to join Generosity Water in their effort in combating the world water crisis."

The soiree will raise awareness for charity partner Generosity Water and its effort to bring clean drinking water to impoverished countries across the world. Since its inception nearly three years ago, Generosity Water has funded more than 250 wells in 17 countries and served clean water to more than 100,000 people.

"It's such an honor to partner with Simon G. Jewelry and The Palazzo Las Vegas to raise awareness about the need for clean water worldwide. We know that many lives will be changed because of this special evening," said Jordan Wagner, executive director of Generosity Water.

A secluded hideaway at The Pools of The Palazzo, Azure Luxury Pool will host the invite-only soiree with a 70-foot stage over the pool, plush daybeds and cabanas for lounging and museum-like displays that will educate guests about the need for clean water. Generosity Water will host its popular interactive "water walk" which allows guests to experience first hand the daily walk for water that millions of people around the world take every day.

The Palazzo's newest restaurant, i♥burgers, will serve a selection of sliders and other deliciousness in their award-winning, re-engineered American Classic style. The official "Summer Soiree" after-party will be held at The Palazzo's LAVO nightclub.
