This morning Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman presented renowned magicians Penn & Teller with a key to the city to recognize their dedication to the Las Vegas community and unwavering commitment to helping Aid for AIDS of Nevada (AFAN) fight the HIV/AIDS pandemic (Pictured above: Teller with Mayor Oscar Goodman – Photo courtesy of Paul Whiteman of Cashman Productions).  

Together, Penn & Teller have pledged their support to AFAN, leading the Penn & Teller Challenge at the annual AIDS Walk and supporting a variety of AFAN fundraising events including AFAN’s annual Black and White Party.

Prior to Mayor Goodman presenting the duo with a key, Jennifer Morss, executive director of AFAN, thanked the entertainers for their generous contributions over the past 10 years, emphasizing the success of the AIDS Walk would not be as great if it weren’t for their involvement.

Mayor Goodman then took time to personally thank the duo for their continual dedication to the city of Las Vegas and local organizations like AFAN before presenting Penn & Teller with an official key.

As the ceremony progressed, jokes were passed among the three as Penn detailed attending clown college and then moving on to discuss Teller’s educational background. To everyone’s surprise, Mayor Goodman and Teller discovered that they attended the same high school years ago.

Penn & Teller concluded the ceremony by thanking Mayor Goodman and the city of Las Vegas for the continual support, noting how much they truly enjoy giving back to the community and being involved with organizations like AFAN.
