CREATED Apr. 14, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A fundraising event in Las Vegas attracted foodies and art enthusiasts alike.

Village Square held its first annual Arts & Eats event this weekend.

Locals were invited to enjoy live music and art displays from different artists.

People also had the opportunity to sample food and drinks from Village Square restaurants.

Organizers said they were impressed with the turnout for its first year. "Turnout has been fantastic. The community has really been asking us to do an art event here, it's been done in the past, not like we're doing it this year, but the turnout has been very good," said marketing director Lauren Roberson.

All proceeds from the food portion of the event will be donated to Three Square Food Bank, which provides hunger relief around Southern Nevada.
