STAYIN’ ALIVE: STAYIN’ HEALTHY, STAYIN’ STRONG
The 28th Annual Auction Against AIDS
Benefiting The Philadelphia Center
The Philadelphia Center Presents STAYIN’ ALIVE: STAYIN’ HEALTHY, STAYIN’ STRONG. The 28th Annual Auction Against AIDS will be held on Friday, August 18th at Sam’s Town Hotel and Casino from 6 pm to 10 pm. Come enjoy some bad music from the 70s as we bring to you local art, silent auction items, and contests that you will not want to miss, you know. This year’s event includes performances by our local drag artists who will bring to life Cher, Aretha Franklin, Patti Labelle, The Weather Girls, and Donna Summer.
Board president Lonnie McCray is the Auction Chair, working with Jacquelyn Barber as Artistic Director to bring STAYIN’ ALIVE: STAYIN’ HEALTHY, STAYIN’ STRONG to life. Attendees can expect sick entertainment with far out contests throughout the night. That Girl DJ will add to the scene, providing the grooviest music from the disco era.
During the silent auction, attendees can discover the talent of local artists and products and services of small businesses in our own community. Several raffles and contests ensure that everyone has a shot at some truly fabulous prizes. Clarke’s Jewelers will be on hand for their Wishing on a Star contest. “Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now” will be a chance to win a trip to Las Vegas. And chill out, of course, we will have Central Station’s “Shake your Booty” barrel of booze contest which is our popular barrel of wine, liquor, and beer.
Tickets are $50 and are available online (click on the Buy Tickets button above) or at the door.
Psyche: Tickets are $25 until July 31st, so don’t take your time! We are just keepin it real!
The Philadelphia Center developed in the spring of 1990 as concerned citizens responded to the HIV/AIDS epidemic as it spread into the Shreveport area of Louisiana. Our mission is to empower those affected by HIV/AIDS & STDs through education and service. Funds from the Annual Auction Against AIDS provide general and programmatic support for programs such as our Mobile Testing Unit, and Mercy Center, our permanent residential facility for individuals living with HIV/AIDS.
