Golden Rainbow Announces Additional “Ribbon of Life” Performers

A limited number of tickets to the annual event are still available and start at $45

 

The 2015 “Ribbon of Life” production, Rockin’ the Ribbon, has added even more amazing talent. On Sunday, June 28 at The New Tropicana Las Vegas, audiences will see performances by Clint Holmes, Pia Zadora, Jan Rouven, Philip Drennen, House Seats Presents, RagTag Entertainment, and Celebrity City Chorus.

 

These talented performers will join stars from Las Vegas’ favorite shows including “ShowStoppers,” “Jubilee,” “Jersey Boys,” “Million Dollar Quartet,” “MJ Live,” “Legends in Concert,” “Pin Up,” “Vegas! The Show,” and more.

 

A limited number of tickets to the annual “Ribbon of Life” event are still available and start at $45. Keeping with the Rockin’ the Ribbon theme, Golden Rainbow will give away one pair of tickets and a two-night stay at The New Tropicana Las Vegas in a Facebook contest encouraging followers to rock their ribbons. To enter, people are encouraged to submit photos that show them creatively donning the signature red HIV/AIDS ribbon to RockYourRibbon@gmail.com. Deadline for submissions is Monday, June 22.

 

Rockin’ the Ribbon will benefit men, women, and children throughout the community who are affected by HIV/AIDS. The production will feature a wide variety of rock and roll themed numbers performed by stars of the Las Vegas Strip. The 29th annual “Ribbon of Life” event will be hosted by Edie (“Zumanity”) and Sean McAllister (“MORE” and “MORE Access”). The show will be immediately followed by an after party in the Havana Room, where attendees can mix and mingle with performers and partake in a cash bar and hors d’oeuvres.

 

“Ribbon of Life” was created 29 years ago by members of the Las Vegas entertainment community in response to seeing one of their own diagnosed with HIV/AIDS. Tragically, due to fear and ignorance of the disease, he was forced to live, and eventually die, in his family’s garage. To raise prevention awareness and money to assist those affected by the disease, entertainers organized the show. The show, then called “Golden Rainbow,” led to the creation of the nonprofit organization. The annual event is one of the largest HIV/AIDS fundraisers in the state of Nevada and is Golden Rainbow’s main source of revenue.

 

Tickets are now on sale and sponsorship packages are available. For more information, visit www.goldenrainbow.org.
