27th Annual Auction Against AIDS: Walking the Runway for a Cure!

The Board of Directors invites you to become a part of a night of Fashion, Music, Art. The Philadelphia Center’s Auction Against AIDS is celebrating its 27th Anniversary this July, and we are ready for the fashion show to begin. Come enjoy a stylish night as we bring the fashion world of New York, Paris, and Milan to our city. As always we will have a fabulous feast, must have silent and live auction items, and avant garde entertainment that is sure to create a timeless event. This year’s title sponsor is Sam’s Town Hotel and Casino in Shreveport, LA, and the auction will be held on Saturday July, 16th, 2016. We will have general and runway seating for guests, tables for sponsors, iconic entertainment, and several popular contests. To fulfill its mission of providing support services, preventing the spread of HIV/AIDS and STDs, and improving the quality of life for all people affected, the Philadelphia Center continues to have this fundraiser for the northwest Louisiana community.

SPONSORSHIPS: The best way to support this event and directly provide funds for The Philadelphia Center is through sponsorship. We have several tiers, starting at just $150 with excellent perks!
