AFAN’s Black & White Party Returns to Las Vegas

AFAN’s Black & White Party Returns to Las Vegas

Aid for AIDS of Nevada (AFAN) is one of Las Vegas’s favorite foundations. “Aid for AIDS of Nevada (AFAN) is the oldest and largest AIDS service organization in the state of Nevada,” AFAN Board Member Anthony DeFelice explained. “AFAN’s mission is to provide support and advocacy for local adults and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. The organization works to reduce HIV infections through prevention education to eliminate fear, prejudice, and the stigma associated with the disease. AFAN’s goal is to one day see Nevada free of HIV/AIDS.”

AFAN’s Black & White Party Celebrates Las Vegas Community

“Always expect the unexpected at the Black & White Party!” DeFelice told us. “Celebrating the 36th anniversary, this year’s party will be at the Palms SOAK Pool and KAOS Nightclub at Palms Casino Resort. Guests will enjoy a fantastic entertainment lineup, a full selection of food and beverage samplings, and fun photo opps! With this year’s party falling so close to Halloween, guests can also anticipate more over-the-top and revealing black-and-white fashions. Maybe even a visit from a witch or three ?. And remember…guests are encouraged to wear as much black and white as possible or as little as they can get away with.”

The annual event is scheduled to take place on September 9 this year, and the event is always one of the best events of the year (tickets can be purchased here). “AFAN has the most committed partners who volunteer time and resources year after year to make this event happen,” DeFelice told us. “From our Virgin Hotel partners to the entertainment community, local restaurants, and community organizations, the party grows every year because of the outpouring of support.”

In addition to the amazing community turnout, the Black & White Party is notorious for turning out some impressive looks. “The event is also known for its avant-garde fashions! The signature black and white dress code makes guests feel involved and a part of the party,” DeFelice said. “This year, AFAN will honor a select list of community heroes with the ‘Right to Wear Red’ AFAN’s biennial honor given at the Black & White Party. The honorees will have the opportunity to wear red in a sea of black and white for the significant contributions they have made to AFAN, especially during the pandemic.”
