About Golden Rainbow
Golden Rainbow is a non-profit organization co-founded in 1987 by Bree Burgess and Peter Todd
to provide housing and financial assistance to people living with HIV/AIDS in Southern Nevada.
The organization was established by members of the Las Vegas entertainment industry who saw
the need to provide housing for people with AIDS when one of their fellow performers was forced
to live and eventually die in his family’s garage. Motivated by their cast mates and friends suddenly
becoming ill and dying in record numbers, show performers from all over the Strip organized a
benefit show to raise funds to provide shelter for those in most need. Originally called “Golden
Rainbow,” the show premiered on July 11, 1987, in the Ziegfeld Theatre at Bally’s, and is now
known as the “Ribbon of Life®” that remains one of the largest and most successful HIV/AIDS
annual fundraisers in Nevada. In addition, the organization hosts their annual “Dining Out for Life”
event, partnering with local restaurants to fundraise for their critically needed services. For more
