LAS VEGAS -- Aid for AIDS of Nevada (AFAN) hosted its 28th annual Black & White Party at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas Saturday night.

With black and white attire as the only dress code, the dichromatic fashion ran the gamut from couture cocktail dresses to painted on pasties. 3,000 guests filled the venue to party for a good cause, raising nearly $130,000 to benefit AFAN's client service programs.

Host Bryan Chan introduced performances from Jabbawockeez, Melody Sweets, Sky Dee Miles, Jubilee!, Chase Brown, Lorena Peril, new show LIMELIGHT and more. Star of RuPaul's "Drag Race" Shangela (D.J. Pierce) was a highlight of the night and posed for photos with guests. The night was full of surprises as Chan invited some of his pals from Chippendales to the stage for an unforgettable performance.

With 2014 being AFAN's 30th anniversary, the organization honored some of their original founders with the "Right to Wear Red," including Wes Davis, Mel Pohl and Senator David Parks. AFAN's board members and executive director Antioco Carillo welcomed the nominees and recognized their lasting contributions to the community.

Guests enjoyed food & beverage samplings from Vegas' top chefs and mixologists including Culinary Dropout, Maggiano's, Pink Taco, 35 Steaks + Martinis, Jamba Juice, Popcorn Girl, Ferraro's, Aliante Casino + Hotel and Back Bar USA.
