What started as a backyard gathering in 1986 to collect canned goods for those living with HIV/AIDS, the Black & White Party has grown into a lavish celebration, with exciting entertainment, gourmet food & beverage and eye-catching monochromatic fashion. Last year, more than 3,500 guests attended, raising more than $130,000.
Now in its 30th year of providing support and advocacy, AFAN is Nevada’s oldest and largest HIV/AIDS organization. Last year, more than 4,000 local men, women and children visited the AFAN office to access services including medical case management, transportation, counseling, housing and utility assistance and emergency food vouchers.
Entertainment, food & beverage sponsors and a roster of official weekend events, as well as the Right to Wear Red nominees will be announced at a later date. Presenting sponsors for this year’s Black & White Party include Penn & Teller, Walgreens, Jetflix, Wendoh Media, CBS Radio, Findlay Cadillac and Findlay Honda Henderson.
Guests must be 21 years of age or older.
Tickets are now on sale at afanlv.org for $40 general admission and $125 VIP with early entry at 8 p.m. Black and white attire is required for admission.
