Aid for AIDS of Nevada (AFAN) hosted their 20th annual AIDS walk this past weekend here in Las Vegas at the World Market Center with Penn & Teller acting as the Grand Marshals. The “Penn & Teller Challenge” which brought in nearly 1,000 contributors was just a fraction of the 8,500 that participated.
So far, we’re told the AIDS walk raised $88,000, which the “Penn & Teller Challenge” has agreed to match in its entirety. This year was AFAN’s largest fund raiser to date – and its efforts will go towards educating and assisting more than 3,000 men, woman and children infected with HIV and AIDS in Southern Nevada.
A special thanks to those involved this year, especially Penn and Teller, who all made a major difference in making this year’s efforts the biggest one yet!
