BACK BAR USA RENEWS PARTNERSHIP WITH AFAN FOR 28TH ANNUAL BLACK & WHITE PARTY

 

Building on the success experienced last year, Back Bar USA, a wine, beer and spirits marketing, consulting and design firm based in Las Vegas, will once again partner with Aid for AIDS of Nevada’s (AFAN) for its 28th annual Black & White Party, which will be held at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel on August 23. Back Bar will work with its affiliated spirits brands to develop creative and unique cocktails that will be showcased at exciting interactive displays during the event.

 

“Last year we were able to take one of the best parties in Las Vegas and take it to a new level,” said Tim Haughinberry, founder of Back Bar and long-time supporter of AFAN. “The ideas are already flowing for this year’s event and we look forward to making the experience even more memorable.” 

 

The annual event, which has been held at a variety of venues across Las Vegas, experienced an unprecedented level of success at The Joint. At the 2014 event, around 3,500 people attended Black & White Party and AFAN raised more than $130,000. Positive feedback about the participation of Back Bar and its brands lead to the renewal of the agreement for 2014.

 

“We appreciate Back Bar and their spirits brands for their continued support of AFAN and we can’t wait to see what they have in store for this year’s Black & White Party,” said AFAN Executive Director Antioco Carrillo. “Without the help from our partners, we wouldn’t be able to assist our clients and their families with the resources they need to live.” 

 

Ticket pricing and times are still being determined for the 28th annual Black & White Party. More information will soon become available at www.afanlv.org. More information about Back Bar USA, its brands and services is available at www.BackBarUSA.com.

BACK BAR USA AND AFFILIATE BRANDS TO BE EXCLUSIVE LIQUOR PARTNERS FOR SELECT AFAN BLACK & WHITE PARTY EVENTS

 

Back Bar USA, a wine, beer and spirits marketing and consulting firm based in Las Vegas, and its affiliated brands will serve as the exclusive liquor partners for select events that are a part of Aid for AIDS of Nevada’s (AFAN) 27th annual Black & White Party Weekend. AFAN, which helps those living with HIV and AIDS in Southern Nevada, is adding to the excitement this year by adding additional Black & White Party activities August 24-25 at Hard Rock Hotel. Back Bar is excited to serve as a partner for the main event and VIP party to be held at The Joint, and the post-party brunch at 35 Steaks + Martinis.

 

Back Bar USA and AFAN have a strong relationship. Tim Haughinberry, founder of Back Bar, is a former board member and proud supporter of AFAN for more than a decade. “Philanthropy is very important to Back Bar USA and Black & White Party is a perfect fit,” said Haughinberry. “It attracts a hip crowd that likes to have fun and enjoys our brands while helping a great cause.”

 

The following sponsors are confirmed: Ketel One Vodka, Bulleit Bourbon, Corona Beer, Maker’s Mark Bourbon, Jameson Irish Whiskey, Avion Tequila, Frangelico Liqueur, Chambord Liqueur, Southern Comfort, Bacardi Pineapple Fusion Rum, Corzo Tequila, Nicolas Feuillatte Champagne, Maestro Dobel Tequila and Bud Light. All liquor sponsors will provide signature product drink tastes to partygoers and an enhanced cocktail selection to VIP guests.

 

Back Bar USA’s mixologists have also created signature cocktails using sponsor products. Among them, “Equality,” which features Ketel One Vodka, lemon, simple syrup and muddled raspberries. The cocktail is a vibrant red and topped with ginger soda for a pink foam. Black & White Party is closely tied to the LGBT community, and the cocktail’s colors match the Human Rights Commission “equal sign” symbol used to commemorate the recent Supreme Court decisions about gay rights. The cocktail offers a refreshing fruity taste with tartness from the raspberries and hint of spice from the ginger soda.

 

Another signature cocktail example is “Red Smash,” which uses Maker’s Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon, cherry syrup, lemon juice and simple syrup. Bourbon is the star of this rich maroon cocktail. It has a hint of sweetness from the cherry and simple syrups that is complemented by tartness from the lemon juice.

 

Prices for Black & White Party range from $35 for the main event up to sponsorships of $25,000 and beyond. The brunch at 35 Steaks + Martinis costs $45 with unlimited mimosas or bloody Marys available for an additional $15. More information and ticket sales are available at www.afanlv.org.
