Enjoy buy-one, get-one-half-off pitchers of Double Helix’s signature red sangria and mouthwatering brunch fare while supporting Aid for AIDS of Nevada (AFAN) on Saturday, March 7. The wine and whiskey destination will donate 20 percent of sales from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. to AFAN, funding programs dedicated to providing health expertise, support and advocacy for adults and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS in southern Nevada. Guests may also register for AFAN’s 25th Annual AIDS Walk taking place on Sunday, April 19.
Double Helix’s sangria fundraiser will also serve as AFAN’s first “Every Piggy Counts” Pig Out event of 2015. In support of AFAN, community members may adopt ceramic piggy banks to “fatten up” throughout the year and empty at any of AFAN’s quarterly “Pig Out” events, leading up to the final Pig Out on World AIDS Day, Dec. 1. Each piggy comes with a paint pen and can be decorated, painted or bedazzled to fit in at home or at the office. Pre-decorated piggies designed by select art students from Las Vegas Academy are also available. Baby piggy banks are available for children as a fun way to teach about fundraising. Pigs are always available for adoption at the AFAN offices at 1120 Almond Tree Lane.
