The Las Vegas Aids Walk hit records for fundraising and attendance Sunday, as more than 12,000 supporters raised $471,000.
The 23rd annual Aids Walk was orchestrated by Aid for AIDS of Nevada and had the help of entertainment icons such as Penn and Teller.
Last year, officials said, about 9,000 people participated and raised about $450,000.
The event was hosted by Jaymes Vaughan and James Davis, stars of Chippendales and participants from the CBS show “Amazing Race,” and Chris Saldaña. Mayor Carolyn Goodman and U.S. Rep. Dina Titus also attended.
The money will help treat and educate more than 4,000 men, women and children infected with HIV and AIDS in Southern Nevada, officials said.
