NEVADA: Ribbon of Life, Benefiting Nonprofit that Helps Locals with HIV/AIDS, Set for Sunday




 

Las Vegas Review-Journal (06.26.2013)

Ribbon of Life will present its 27th anniversary show on Sunday, June 30, at Las Vegas’s Smith Center. The show is the main fundraiser for Golden Rainbow, a nonprofit organization that provides housing and other assistance to HIV-infected individuals in Las Vegas. This year’s show is titled “Tributes” and will include numbers that pay respect to Broadway, film, comedy, hip-hop, and pop music. The Golden Rainbow board of directors decides the theme and chooses which local artists to include. This year, they had to choose 12 performers from the 40 submissions they received. This year’s chosen performers include headliner and Grammy-winner Jon Secada; Michael Grimm, winner of the fifth season of “America’s Got Talent”; Clint Holmes; Josh Strickland; George Wallace; Las Vegas Tenors; the Phat Pack; Wes Winters; “Jubilee!” members; and others. Golden Rainbow uses the funds for a permanent housing program for people living with HIV/AIDS, rent, mortgages, reduced co-pays, and much more for 500 people. Last year’s show raised more than $200,000.
