It was black, and white and fun all over at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, where last month more than 2,500 revelers danced the night away at the Aid for AIDS of Nevada’s (AFAN) 31st annual Black & White Party.

“We are honored to have so many people in the community involved to help put this event on year after year,” said AFAN’s Executive Director Antioco Carrillo. “We are here tonight to continue to raise funds to help those affected by HIV/AIDS and make Nevada AIDS-free. Until we find a cure we will continue to have this party and when we do, we will throw an even bigger party!”

Attendees dressed in all kinds of variations on the black-and-white theme, many creatively accented with balloons, beads and other baubles. Guests included magicians Penn & Teller, Murray SawChuck, Chippendales dancers, the cast of Magic Mike, Chloe Crawford from Criss Angel’s Mindfreak, Jeff Timmons from 98 Degrees, and the cast of Frank Marino’s Divas.
