On August 25, 2012, Aid for AIDS of Nevada (AFAN) and Hard Rock Hotel & Casino will host the 26th Annual Black & White Party. The Nirvana Pool will be transformed into an unforgettable party atmosphere, with a sea of people dressed in black and white, all with the common goal to fight HIV/AIDS in Southern Nevada. The party will go from 9pm-1am and attendees will be treated to tastings from some of Las Vegas’ premier restaurant and spirit vendors. This year there will also be a VIP party from 7:30pm-9pm with a specialty selection, also offering guests early access to the main party and first tastings.

Right to Wear Red

All letters must be submitted to events@afanlv.org by July 1.

Black & White History

What began 24 years ago around a backyard pool with black and white generic canned goods to support AFAN’s food pantry has evolved into one of Las Vegas’ signature fundraising events bringing in over 3,000 party goers. The food has transformed to offer guests samplings from  more the 10 premier Las Vegas restaurants and beverage sponsors provide thirst quenching drinks. The decor is black and white, and filled with an avant-garde crowd ready to party for a cause.
