Golden Rainbow, a local HIV/AIDS nonprofit, will host the 25th annual Ribbon of Life production at Paris Théâtre inside Paris Las Vegas Hotel on Sunday, June 26 at 1 p.m. This year marks Golden Rainbow’s 25th anniversary of the Ribbon of Life spectacular.
“It is a great honor to guide Golden Rainbow as we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the ‘Ribbon of Life’ fundraiser,” said Golden Rainbow Executive Director Lea Carrasco-Zanini. “We would like to thank our volunteers, board members, sponsors and the city of Las Vegas for supporting us throughout the years and helping with our efforts toward fighting HIV/AIDS.”
Tickets for the 25th annual “Ribbon of Life” fundraiser are priced at $35, $50, $100 and $200 and will be available for purchase in the coming weeks. All proceeds benefit Golden Rainbow’s mission to provide housing and direct financial assistance to Southern Nevadans living with HIV/AIDS and to support prevention education.
Drawing thousands of supporters every year, “Ribbon of Life” is Golden Rainbow’s main source of revenue. The fundraising spectacular is an original production unlike any other in Las Vegas, featuring some of the best singers, dancers and performers from premiere shows on the Las Vegas Strip. Showcasing new acts and talent, each year’s “Ribbon of Life” audience is always surprised, thrilled and inspired by performances that are exclusive to the event.
“Ribbon of Life” was presented for the first time by members of the entertainment industry who saw a need for a support system when one of their colleagues faced HIV/AIDS. To raise awareness and money to fight the disease, the entertainers organized a show, which became the annual “Ribbon of Life Spectacular.” The show, then called “Golden Rainbow,” led to the creation of the nonprofit organization. “Ribbon of Life” is now one of the largest HIV/AIDS fundraisers in the state of Nevada.
