In Loving Memory of Patty Cerajewski

Patty Memorial Collage


Ladies and Gentlemen of our beloved glass community, it is with deep regret and immense sadness that we announce the recent passing of our dear friend Patty Cerajewski.

Patty originally came to Las Vegas to work at the Aladdin Hotel & Casino from Chicago where she was mostly involved in nursing care until the Harrah’s Sales & Catering department scooped her up. During Football season you could always tell that her heart was back in her hometown. I remember that she loved to wear her favorite Bears jersey on game days around the office and her phone ringer sound was that familiar Monday night football tv anthem. I can still hear it blaring from her back office.

I’ve always said it was a great day when I hired Patty away from the Aladdin. She was such a fantastic addition to our office and our family. I may have been the glass craft show director and dealt with the mundane details such as contracts, logistics and the numbers, but she was always the face and heart of the show to the people, and she really cared about each of you.

Patty began as the Tradeshow coordinator for Glass Craft & Bead Expo back in 2004. By 2006, she was promoted to Tradeshow Manager; the position she held for 10 years until her leaving us in the spring of 2016. The original founder and owner of Las Vegas Management, Tommy Licata, used to call her “Patty Glass” before he died in 2008. It always made her smile. Patty made such good friends within the glass community, and I am sure everyone will miss her dearly… as will I.

Patty is survived by her Daughter, Tiffany, her Son James (Jimmy) and her Granddaughter, Chilyn – who brightened her day, loved dearly and was the apple of her eye.

Her Celebration of Life will be held on August 10th at 11am, at the Central Christian Church in Las Vegas just off Russell and the US95.

If you want to reach out to her family with a card, their address is

993 Equestrian Drive Unit 4204, Henderson, NV 89002

Things to do in Las Vegas

Activities Near the South Point Hotel

The South Point Hotel & Conference Center offers numerous dining and entertainment options and attendees may find many other restaurants, shops and recreational opportunities all within a short taxi ride of the property. Of course, the sights and sounds of the famed Las Vegas Strip are just a few miles north on Las Vegas Boulevard. But if you prefer to venture out from "home," then consider some of these alternatives:

ENTERTAINMENT: There's a good reason why Las Vegas is called the "Entertainment Capital of the World." Since its Rat Pack days, Las Vegas has been inextricably associated with legendary shows and entertainers.

Say "Las Vegas" and it's likely that showgirls in elaborate headdresses and Elvis impersonators will come to mind. Today, the Las Vegas entertainment scene still has plenty of its classic glamour, but it has evolved to include so much more. In addition to the iconic Las Vegas entertainment staples, the destination offers a lineup of award-winning magicians, Broadway-caliber productions, world-renowned concert headliners and unique-to-Las Vegas production shows. For more information please visit visitlasvegas.com.

SHOPPING: If you want it, Vegas has it. From designer splurges to bargain deals, Las Vegas has become a one-stop shopping Mecca. Everything from colorful souvenir shops to haute couture boutiques can be found in retail centers along the Las Vegas Strip and surrounding areas.

You won't be alone in your shopping endeavors. More than half of the nearly 39 million visitors who visit Las Vegas each year spent time shopping, according to the 2006 Las Vegas Visitor Profile Study. Las Vegas shoppers spent an average of $140.86 per trip, the study reports, more than twice as much as on sightseeing and show tickets combined. For more information please visit visitlasvegas.com.

NIGHTLIFE: In 1930, Frank Detra took a chance and opened Pair O' Dice, Las Vegas' first nightclub. Located on what was then known as the new highway to Los Angeles (today, we call it the Las Vegas Strip), the club was open only at night.

In addition to bands and jazz performers, the Pair O' Dice served Italian food. Most notably, the establishment had a history of closing and re-opening because it sported gaming tables before the city had legalized gaming and served alcohol during Prohibition.

Nine years later, the Pair O' Dice was sold to police captain and commander of the vice squad Guy McAfee who renamed it the 91 Club. The nightlife scene changes frequently so please visit visitlasvegas.com for more information.

GOLF: Las Vegas is no longer golf's best-kept secret. In fact, Las Vegas recently was named the top emerging golf destination in the world by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators.

From exquisite championship courses designed by legends of the sport to lush fairways and breathtaking views - golf is just another reason the destination attracted 39.2 million visitors in 2007.

Today, more than 60 golf courses are available for play in Las Vegas throughout the year thanks to the area's inviting climate. Las Vegas offers challenging, yet beautifully sculpted courses developed by world-renowned designers including Jack Nicklaus, Tom Weiskopf, Billy Casper, Arnold Palmer and Pete Dye. For more information about golfing in Las Vegas, please visit visitlasvegas.com.
