Tickets are on sale now for Golden Rainbow's 33rd annual Ribbon of Life on June 23 at Tropicana Las Vegas. Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Woodstock, "Summer of Love" will feature performances inspired by the three-day music festival of peace, love and music. Last year's Ribbon of Life event raised nearly $85,000 for critically needed services for those living with or affected by HIV/AIDS.
Co-founded in 1987, Golden Rainbow is a non-profit organization that provides housing and financial assistance to people living with HIV/AIDS in Southern Nevada. The organization was established by members of the Las Vegas entertainment industry who saw the need to provide housing for people with AIDS when one of their fellow performers was forced to live and eventually die in his family's garage.
EDIE, the Mistress of Sensuality from "Zumanity," and Sean McAllister, from FOX 5's MORE Show will return as hosts as they introduce talent from major shows on the Strip. For over 30 years, Ribbon of Life has been an original talent showcase featuring custom production numbers from some of the Strip's singers, dancers, and performers.
Tickets start at $45 and can be purchased at goldenrainbow.org/ribbonoflife. Guests of all ages are welcome to attend the show.
Golden Rainbow is also accepting performance submissions from the Las Vegas entertainment community. For those interested in performing at this year's event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
