Following the spectacular, show attendees enjoyed an after-party at Chateau Nightclub and Gardens and celebrated with a silent auction, music, cocktails and a cake designed by Freed’s Bakery of Las Vegas. The benefit raised more $151,000, surpassing the previous year’s goal by $20,000. Money raised during the event directly supports Golden Rainbow’s mission to provide housing and financial assistance to individuals and families affected by HIV/AIDS.
