It’s almost time for Aid for AIDS of Nevada (AFAN) to paint the town black and white at its 36th Annual Black & White Party at 9 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 22 at the Virgin Hotel Las Vegas.
All proceeds from the monochromatic party benefit the longtime nonprofit in its mission to fight HIV/AIDS in Nevada.
Right to Wear Red
While AFAN’s annual event is a sea of black and white, you may notice a few select attendees this year – including Master Calendar Las Vegas (MCLV) founder and Balloons With a Twist CEO Michele Rothstein – wearing red instead. She is among a special group of advocates whose outstanding support of AFAN and its mission has earned them this exclusive honor: The Right to Wear Red.
Balloons With a Twist has sponsored AFAN's two signature events, the Black & White Party and AIDS Walk Las Vegas, for more than 15 years. The company's stunning balloon arches are a staple at the walk while its jaw-dropping black and white balloon dresses are always the talk of the red carpet.
"I'm proud to sponsor an organization like AFAN," said Rothstein, adding, "It’s an important cause. Sometimes people think that AIDS/HIV is not still a prevalent or serious issue, and it absolutely is. It’s not gone and the services that AFAN provides are necessary for our community and impactful."
Congratulations Michele and thank you for your ongoing support of such an important cause!
