Black & White Party benefits AIDS services
Aid for AIDS of Nevada’s 33rd annual Black & White Party returns to The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel on Aug. 10. The party starts at 8 p.m. for VIP and 9 p.m. for general admission. What started as a canned food drive has grown into one of the largest fundraising events in Las Vegas. Food and beverage samples and entertainment will be featured. Guests are encouraged to “wear as much black and white as you want, or as little as you can get away with.” Proceeds will benefit AFAN’s supportive services for people living with or affected by HIV/AIDS.
In honor of AFAN’s 35th anniversary, general admission tickets are $35. VIP packages start at $85. afanlv.org
