Don your chicest summer whites and hit the beach, all to support public radio and KUNR 88.7 FM.

The Grand Sierra Resort and Southern Wine & Spirits of Nevada are holding a benefit event for KUNR Friday, July 27, from 6 to 9 p.m. It's called "SHINE: Cuisine, Spirits, Fashion" and it features some of the area's newest restaurants and hot spots.

This festive outdoor event takes place at the Grand Sierra's newly transformed Nikki Beach Pool, surrounded by beach sand and decor. Attendees will enjoy trendy and traditional spirits courtesy of Southern Wine & Spirits, along with hot and hearty appetizers from the Grand Sierra's new restaurants and night spots, including Charlie Palmer Steak, Fin Fish, Dolce enoteca e ristorante and main host Nikki Beach. Models will sport hot new fashions, and Nikki Beach DJs will spin new hits, party favorites and oldies.

SHINE is a lively celebration of summer. Billed as a "white dress event," guests are encouraged to come in predominantly white attire. As a benefit for KUNR, tickets are tax-deductible. Tickets are $55 in advance or $65 the day of event. Call KUNR at (775) 327-5867 for tickets and information. Or call the Grand Sierra Box Office at (800) 648-3568.
