Ugandan Diaspora News Las Vegas Dispatch — On September 1st labor day weekend in the fabulous city of Las Vegas, Nevada UNAA Causes held their fourth annual Uganda Festival dubbed summer’s ultimate event 2017 at the Aria Resort and Casino hotel. Aria Las Vegas is the epitome of luxury casino resorts – featuring luxury suites, expansive views of the Las Vegas Strip, while remaining central to things to do in Las Vegas.

Organized by Mr. David Muwanga under the Chairmanship of Mr. James Serumaga the event attracted A listers and some of the best entertainers from Uganda including the internationally acclaimed dynamic duo – PSQUARE.

On Friday festivities kicked off with the Diaspora Business Entrepreneurship Club followed by a Business Power lunch. According to NTV’s Mr. Maurice Ochol who we manage to talk to at the Aria hotel having been unable to attend the event earlier summed up the concept, as an idea to create a pool of investors with a strong purchasing power who in turn invest in common stock and real estate across America.

Day Two on Saturday featured a Festival Runway that attracted Uganda’s super Model Aamito Stacie Lagum, the current Miss Uganda Leah Kagassa, the organizer the Miss Uganda brand Brenda Nanyonjo all came through to help promote the Water for Life project as did Fashion Designer Stella Atal.

 Day 3 featured a Taste of Uganda lunch and a Sunset Park Getaway – Grand Fiesta BBQ Retreat. Here lots of networking did take place before the Grand finale event that was held at the Jewel Nightclub. JEWEL Nightclub was opened in the spring of 2016. Spanning more than 24,000 square feet of precisely designed space, JEWEL is as inviting as it is evocative; a rare ambient delight that must be experienced to be appreciated.
