Las Vegas Entertainers Come Out to Support at 26th Annual 

AIDS Walk Las Vegas on April 17

Get ready to “Make Your Mark” at the 26th Annual AIDS Walk Las Vegas on Sunday, April 17 at Town Square starting at 8:30 a.m. with some of The Strip’s top performers showing support.

AFAN’s largest fundraiser of the year, AIDS Walk Las Vegas saw 6,000 walkers in 2015 raising more than $400,000 to directly benefit supportive services to stabilize and empower the 3,000 clients living with or affected by HIV.

Penn & Teller will serve as grand marshals for the 15th consecutive year and leaders of the Penn & Teller Challenge, offering five tiers of fundraising incentives including complimentary show tickets to Frank Marino’s Divas and Rock Of Ages, plus tickets and VIP backstage passes to Blue Man Group. The top challenger will be awarded with complimentary show tickets, a photo opp and exclusive meet & greet with Britney Spears. For every $250 raised by a challenger, Penn & Teller will match the donation dollar for dollar. Mercedes and JC from Mercedes in the Morning on Mix 94.1 will host the opening ceremony, kicking off with Rachel Tyler of Steve Wynn’s ShowStoppers singing the National Anthem. Las Vegas entertainers will show their support with performances from Absinthe’s “Green Fairy” Melody Sweets, VEGAS! The Show, Twisted Vegas, Venetian headliners Human Nature and Steve Wynn’s ShowStoppers.

Several politicians will address the crowd, including Councilman Stavros Anthony, Mayor Pro Tem Steven Ross, Senator Kelvin Atkinson and Senator Harry Reid.

“Las Vegas community members donate their time, money and talents every year and show tremendous support to AFAN and its mission but there is always more work to be done,” said AFAN Executive Director Antioco Carrillo. “HIV/AIDS is everyone’s public health issue and does not discriminate by gender, race or socioeconomic status. It is through this sense of community and duty that we can come together to truly make a difference.”

People of all ages are encouraged to participate and registration is free. For additional information and to register, visit afanlv.org.

Annual presenting sponsors of AIDS Walk include Caesars Entertainment, Walgreens, Penn & Teller, CBS Radio, Greenspun Media Group, PDQ Printing, AGR, Jamba Juice and Snell & Wilmer.
