Seven lucky couples to marry at The Mob Museum in Las Vegas on Valentine’s Day 2012
LAS VEGAS, NV — The Mob Museum, the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) and VEGAS.com, the most comprehensive Las Vegas travel website visited by more than 2.5 million visitors monthly, announce a promotion to award seven lucky couples with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to marry, renew their vows or formally commit to one another at The Mob Museum in downtown Las Vegas, Nevada on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2012.
The promotion, MARRIED AT THE MOB MUSEUM, is highlighted by a special marriage ceremony conducted by former Las Vegas Mayor and former “go-to” mob defense attorney, Oscar B. Goodman, inside The Museum’s historic courtroom. In 1950, the courtroom was the site of one of 14 nationwide Kefauver hearings to expose organized crime. It’s the same courtroom where Goodman once defended such notorious mobsters as Frank “Lefty” Rosenthal and Anthony “The Ant” Spilotro. Goodman, who served three terms as Las Vegas Mayor from 1999 to 2011, is currently retained by the LVCVA as Chairman of the Host Committee, welcoming groups to Las Vegas.
The couples, to be chosen via random drawing on VEGAS.com, will make history themselves as the first members of the public to go inside The Museum on opening day. Winning couples will be flown to Las Vegas courtesy of the LVCVA and enjoy a three-day/two-night stay (February 13 and 14) in the Cabana Suites at the historic El Cortez Hotel once owned by Bugsy Siegel. The prize package also includes flowers by Gaia, photography, a champagne brunch at MOB BAR following the early morning ceremony and a $250 shopping spree at Fashion Show mall on the famed Las Vegas Strip. Winners will also receive expedited assistance with securing a marriage license in Las Vegas on February 13.
The promotion launches on January 16 and runs through January 31, 2012. Winners will be chosen and notified no later than February 1. For promotion details, eligibility, rules and regulations and to enter to win, visit www.vegas.com/weddings.
