Las Vegas’ hottest party of the year, Aid for AIDS of Nevada’s (AFAN) 32nd annual Black & White Party will take place at DAYLIGHT Beach Club inside Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino on Sept. 8 from 8:30-11:30 p.m. The highly anticipated event will feature barely-there fashions, performances from top entertainers and exciting silent auction items (Pictured: Jane McGuire, Alison Scheel, Sheila Taylor, Jermey Szymankowski).
Last year, nearly 2,500 guests raised more than $130,000 to benefit AFAN’s client service programs to help men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS in Southern Nevada.
Returning host Norma Llyaman, “Empress of the 80’s,” will be joined by Strip headliner Miss Behave, from “The Miss Behave Game Show.” This year’s theme, “Escape to Paradise,” will take guests back in time to an 80’s inspired pool party with festive decor. Photo opps and atmosphere performers from MGM Event Productions, LV Photo, Balloons with a Twist, Champagne Creative and Las Vegas Pride will enhance the experience throughout the evening.
Attendees will be treated to culinary samples provided by BRIO Tuscan Grille, Libertine Social, House of Blues, Hussong’s Mexican Cantina, Slice of Vegas, Four Seasons Hotel and Hamburger Mary’s. Guests can dance the night away with a lively music set from DJ Axis and enjoy performances by the Tenors of Rock, Vegas! The Show, MURRAY The Magician, David Goldrake Imaginarium, The Queens of Piranha Nightclub, East Side Riot and more. The casts of Penn & Teller, Chippendales and Sexxy the show will also make special appearances.
