The couture cure: AFAN holds fundraising photo contest

Custom Search 2

We wouldn’t know good fashion if Anna Wintour pinned us down and dressed us herself. But some of you do, and that pedigree could help some sick and needy people.

Aid For AIDS Nevada, or AFAN, is holding a contest for those who can dress in fabulous black and white chic and submit photos of their gussied-up selves to local Gunn/Klum types to be judged. Five winners will be picked to campaign through the summer, right through the Aug. 24 Black and White Party at the Hard Rock Hotel, AFAN’s big fundraising fiesta. The “Black & White Icon” who scores the most online votes (each $1 vote goes to AFAN) and earns the most cash donations at the party earns a $1,000 gift card to Macy’s. Or, that store’s shoppers can buy a $10 savings “glam” pass, half of which is earmarked for AFAN’s efforts to also help out those suffering with AIDS and HIV.
